    I recently got my buddy's 8mm video tapes from high school and got them converted to DVDs. Now I want to put them onto the computer so I can edit them and turn them into video files. Is there any easy way to do this?

    ^ what casek said.

    I could elaborate, but this stuff is pure basics.
    If you're on a Mac used 'Mpeg Stream Clip'.

    there are tons of free tools out there. and warez, but i don't think we're really s'posed to be talking about warez here.

    smartripper is free, fast, and good. tmpeg is a good converter, too, but i doubt you really need it.

    for real.... go find a video help tutorial or FAQ.

    this is a many stage process and I for one am not about
    to walk someone who doesn't know the basics though the
    whole thing. Seriously.... it's like 'how do I make a song?'
    there's just to much for us to cover. www.videohelp.com

    haha.

    oh, man...yeah, there's a ton to learn. why don't you get yourself a copy of ULEAD DVD FACTORY, ULEAD MEDIA STUDIO, and a ton of caffeine.

    you will need to convert your vobbed files to mpeg format. i think dvd factory will do that for you, then load it into media studio. have fun editing. it's not that hard with those programs.

    if you want something a little more powerful, try pinnacle studio.

    and if you feel like the king shit of fuck mountain, try adobe premiere or avid studio.

    ok, so i imported into wmm, but the video is a little stretched out in widescreen after i imported it causing everything to look a little distorted. Is there anyway i can change the width and height of the video manually to adjust that?

    why widescreen?

    the dvd is probably 720x540 so you should stay in that size.

    he could always crop, right? it would lose some things...people, and i know this is true of myself, have a certain affinity for widescreen. i suppose b/c all the doo-doo that hollywood passes to us via dvd is always presented in standard and widescreen formats.

    widescreen seems so much more 'special'. it's not really, but i guess they like to make us think so. it's obviously a big selling point for them. but, they have the nice hd cams and whatnot, nice footage to work with, etc.

    indeed. ulead can be the shit.

    off to look for free copies of 'digital juice'

    edit: i forgot to mentiona program that is easy and powerful. vegas video.

    sony took over soundforge, so now you can find it as 'sony vegas video' or a torrent search of 'sony' will do
