    ok folks, simple goal, and looking to your experience.

    I want to take different scenes from dvds and compile them into dvd.

    I am looking for an easy use application to do this.

    I have used Nero, but it was cumbersome and didn't work well.

    I am sure there is a better app to use, just sure which one.

    Thanks in advance.

    what is your objective -- are you editing your own home movies -- or are you trying to rip commercial DVDs ??

    If you wanna take clips that you already have as files and piece them together on a DVD, use iMovie and iDVD on Mac OS X. Simple as pie...

    I guess I need to be more specific.

    Platform is Windows XP/Vista.

    I am aware of the Mac tools.

    Objective to to take scenes from movies (commercial) and compile scenes into one DVD.

    Example: I have 25 movie clips focusing on black humor. I want to put them all on one dvd so they can be played straight through (chapter markers would be nice).

    The dvds are already decrypted, so no tools for that are needed.

    Again, thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    after you decrypted a DVD you've probably ended up w/several files with .vob suffixes.

    Rename the one you care about with an .mpg suffix

    Go to Best Buy or online and get Pinnacle Studio Plus 11 (I think that version includes mpeg 2 editing). Approx $50.

    Very easy to use and powerful -- do all you're asking

    again, I need something easy.

    vob files don't help...I want snip scenes from a dvd and compile them.

    CloneDVD Mobile does this partially, but not the dvd authoring part.

    I will still give that app try.

    thanks.

    He's saying you can clip out the scenes out vob files with Pinnacle Studio Plus 11 after renaming the extension.

    I understand what he was saying. My point is that going vob by vob is a pain and I was looking for something that could look at the dvd in one shot.

    Nero does this, but is cumbersome.

    I use Pocket Studio to capture 'scenes' from DVD's. Once you have the scenes captured, then use Pinnacle to put the scenes together for a DVD. Pocket Studio is easy to use and Pinnacle is easy to use.
