Video Editing question

I want to know if anyone can tell me which video editing software will allow me to capture video from a dvd (home movie dvd's) that I have already made. My software seems to only allow me to capture from my digital camera or vcr. I have turned my tapes into dvd's, but now want to make different movies from stuff on these dvd's. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

The only way to do that is to use a A to D converter and transfer the movie to your PC. In other words you need to pass the video and audio through your camcorder to get it back to your PC. Not all camcorders have this function.

Have you tried pulling the file off of the DVD and saving it in a directory?

This is why I will always make a DVD that has the movie save as a file. This way I can transer it to my PC and use it for editing later on. In fact I save all the original files(*.AVI) on DVD's to be used later. Granted it takes 3 DVD's for a 1 hour tape but its worth it.

I don't think so. I think VideoStudio does it.

THe A to D converter can be a standalone unit. In fact I saw one advertised the other day... The camcorder was just a suggestion.
