    I recorded a tv show from Tivo and burned it onto a DVD, after i finalized the dvd on my player...

    I had trouble getting the dvd footage off of DVD Shrink 3.2 so I used AnyDVD

    after i put the VOB file into Sony Vegas 8.0 and there was no sound...I can see the video and i can see the sound below but hear nothing when i play it...

    I opened the DVD on my computers DVD player and the sound was there....

    I don't know what to, i tried researching which lead me to DVD Shrink and AnyDVD but i still have no sound in Sony Vegas...


    i'm not sure what to do...

  6. Maybe you need a Vegas plugin for AC3 audio? You might also try AC3 Filter or AC3 ACM.

    i download AC3 Filter.. cause i needed it to convert the VOB file into a DIVX File....

    but the Audio was completley off....BUT i was able to hear the audio in Vegas, so i just cut it and moved it back into sync....

    but i'm still looking for a better solution cause doing that is a nightmare...

    If you need to edit in Vegas before burning to DVD, you can turn the AC3 audio file into a .wav file. One way is to use VirtualDub with AC3ACM installed. Open the VOB, select "Save WAV," and make sure you end up with a 48k, 16-bit stereo .wav file.

    If you simply need to burn the VOB to a DVD, there are several simple ways to prepare a DVD structure. IfoEdit is but one of many easy freeware solutions.

    hi Filmboss,
    do i need to separate the audio from the video into two files? would that be hard to match up in Sony Vegas?

    sorry if i'm confused..haven't slept and been editing for three days : /

    The question is, do you need to actually EDIT the VOB? I could better steer you in the proper direction if I knew what you ultimately intended to do -- edit or just burn? If you just want to burn to DVD, skip Vegas altogether, and use IfoEdit with ImgBurn. There's also an alternative editing option of cutting native mpeg2 video from the VOB using Mpg2Cut2 (freeware). That way the video is not reencoded. Vegas, on the other hand, is really best for editing DV-AVI video. If you really want to use that, you'd likely need to convert your VOB to a DV-AVI file. Again, VirtualDub can do this, as long as you have a DV codec (like Cedocida DV Codec) installed.

    Also, get some sleep. Good rest enhances problem-solving cognitive ability.
