I'm new here, but I did some video editing years ago, and now I'm trying to get back up to speed, with various new tools.
I'm making a home video, and I'd like to insert a short clip from a DVD, to add some humor. Nothing long or substantial; think Clark Gable saying, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
I extracted an M2V and AC files from the disc, and I used Bandicut to isolate the few seconds I want. The filename (generated by Bandicut) says it is an avi file, but GSpot says it is "FFmpeg MPEG 1/2". Now I'm trying to get it into Premier Elements 11.
There are a lot of codec packs that have lots of dll files. If I copy a well-chosen dll file into some file folder, in my PrE program folder, will that solve my problem? If so, which dll file, and which PE folder?
If not, is there any other good answer?
I don't want to have to convert my avi/mpeg file into something else; I would simply like to be able to add it to my list of video assets, in a project.

Why not just rip the disk and use the vobs as your source? Fewer steps.
Smrpix - Hey, I didn't know Premier 11 would work with VOB or M2V files. Many thanks for that info!
Still, the underlying logic is, I'd rather let Premier handle smaller chunks (such as 100 Mb or less)
rather than forcing it to have 20 different files lined up and ready, with each one nearly a full gigabyte.
Here's what I got. It's just a standard store-bought DVD (but fairly old, in 4:3 format).
Ripped to M2v with DVD Decrypter,
Extracted -- lossless, I hope -- to avi, using Bandicut's "fast, no recoding" mode.
