!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!congratualations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU ARE THE 1,000,000th CUSTOMER
--------- to ask THIS question ----------

hahahahahahahaha - i just thought that was funny, since this is just about THE most frequently asked question on the forum.

just to add a counterpoint to the solution.

there are 2 good applications for this:

DVDxDV and mpeg streamclip.

i use them both for different situations and here are my experiences:

DVDxDV
pro: VERY reliable, FANTASTIC SUPPORT
con: cost $25 or $80 depending on version, DOES NOT DISPLAY TIMECODE

mpegstreamclip:
pro: displays accurate timecode, FREE
con: somewhat prone to errors

How much did your Toast cost?

You do need to be careful with the file names. *.mpg can either be an VCD MPEG1 or a DVD MPEG2. Both use the same filename and may take different tools.

Hi toast 6 should be around 50 bucks I think toast 7 is around 70 to 90 bucks, maybe check online. it's worth it.

you don't have to worry about the .mpg or mov. you can convert from dvd .mpg 2 compressed and the program sets it automatically to a mov. file. that's quicktime mov. you can't ask for anything easier then that.

Hey Zia, you take the .mpg clip into toast 6 or 7 and you export it out as a dv mov. that is quicktime compliant and it will play in FCP and can be edited.

end of story,,,

isn't streamclip a FREE software that allows you to do miracles. I don't know my experience is that you don't get something for nothing. I went to their site i just downloaded there mac version. so we'll see. My experience is that if it's that great companies would be vying for it. just like apple bought quicktime when it was first introduced to the market.

thats a good question ZIA, you know, ive never tried to open an mpeg with DVDxDV, i just assumed that it would... i may be wrong i cant get it to open one here.

another reason that i choose mpegstreamclip...

hollywood, im not sure what your point is?

mpeg streamclip (aside from an error here or there) just works. and it displays timecode - which DVDxDV STILL does NOT. which is why i use streamclip. i do a good bit of work putting together arbitration presentations for attorneys. and if i didnt have mpegstreamclip and its timecode readout id have to just search randomly through stacks of deposition DVDs...

mpegstreamclip has been instrumental in about $35,000 for my business in the last 10 months.

<<<some of their footage in .wmv clip>>>

We have made very good use of Flip4Mac to get back and forth between Windows Media (*.wmv) and QuickTime.
