How to edit copyrighted DVDs...and back again

by bengance / October 25, 2004 4:10 PM PDT

I have a dilemia, I legally own copyrighted DVDs (commercial movies) that I would like to edit for questionable content (i.e., for kids).

What's the best method of doing this?

So far I've experimented with programs like DVD decrypter, edited them with programs like ArcSoft Showbiz and Adobe Premiere, and then reburned them to DVD. Is this the best way? Is there an all-in-one software solution?

All in one? I'm going to write no. If you peek at http://www.avid.com/products/video/ you will find that Avid's (just one of many companies in this field) doesn't put all the software in one megalith product.

Well, even if there isn't an all in one, what are the best software tools then?

You noted something I know works. I think you have to add IFOEDIT to finish it off.

I'm thinking you were looking for something "easier" but there is a reason you haven't found such... The media could be copyrighted and can't be offered at any retail venue. Makes it very hard to note such a solution, but you are using the right items.

How to create copyrighted DVDs.

That is a deep secret, but the Avid tools will help create the content and Avid support will point you to the companies that will mass produce your copyrighted DVDs.

If you just wanted to copy that DVD, DVDSHRINK does fine and the price is right.
