Chapter 6. Collecting Assets in the Album > Importing Content from DVDs

Importing Content from DVDs

One essential feature that appeared in Studio 9.4 and continues in version 10 is the ability to import video from DVD-Video discs. This can be a quick and easy way to reclaim short bits of footage from previous productions where you no longer have the source assets on your hard disk. In theory, you do lose a bit of quality when working from video retrieved from DVDs, since it's already been encoded once, but it's usually difficult to tell.

You can't import video from DVDs with the kind of specificity or sequential access you get when you capture from your camcorder. Video is stored on DVDs in groups of clips called Titles, and that's exactly how it appears to Studio as it retrieves content from a DVD. When you instruct Studio to import video from a DVD, you have to select it by title, because Studio can't drill into the title and find the specific five-minute scene you want. Once you've imported the content as a video file, however, you'll be able to move through and edit it just like any other video file you work with in Studio.
