Import DVD footage in Adobe Premiere CC

I want to import footage from a DVD to Adobe Premiere CC. Can I do this directly withPremiere CC or do I need a programm to convert DVD files first? Thanks for helping me out.

Adobe Premiere Pro is a timeline-based video editing software, it accepts a wide range of formats as an input, including .vob files in video_ts folder of home-made DVDs. But for videos encrypted in commercial DVD, Adobe Premiere Pro doesn’t include the software needed to decrypt DVDs and extract file out. To import DVD to Adobe Premiere Pro for smooth editing, here are 2 methods.

Solution 1: Put the DVD into your computer player, open the DVD in Explorer, copy the folder Video_TS to your computer. Open the folder and rename all the files with the extension VOB to MPG. That’s it. Premiere will now import them.

Important note: This way seems to work only for non-protected DVDs. If have some commercial DVDs, you may need another solution. By the way, we searched the issues online, some guys give the feedback renaming the files didn’t work; the files would import but then was unusable in Premiere Pro.

Solution 2: The alternative trick is to rip the video files out of the DVDs, transcode them to a format that Adobe Premier Pro does support then import. You best bet is to use a DVD to Adobe Premiere Pro Converter to rip DVD and convert video to MPG format, which can be easily recognized by APP.

To do that, you can use DumboFab DVD Ripper. By running it, there’s no need to set the codec by yourself: the DVD ripping software has optimized presets for Adobe Premiere Pro. With it, you can easily extract desired clips from DVD for editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Besides, the program also supports convert DVD to almost any video formats like MKV, MOV, AVI, WMV, MP4, FLV ,etc. with fast ripping speed and high output video quality bypassing DVD CSS protection.
