Post Simple video help needed
I need to edit a DVD for the PyroPlastiFlow performance on the 22nd at Club Underground
All I need is someone with a computer who can rip from DVD, edit the clips together and then burn a few DVDs
Nothing fancy, just one clip after another
I don't have the equipment right now
Can you please help the less fortunate with a donation?
R!

Does the <b>audio</b> need to be preserved? The only DVD-mastering software I've tinkered with did a horseshit job of keeping the audio synched, if it retained it <i>at all</i>.

If the resulting DVD is just a "mute" visual aid for the show, that wouldn't be a problem. But if the sound on the DVD is part of your backing track or something, then I won't be able to help.

It's pretty easy to divide the video up into chapters, so if something goes awry at showtime (or the applause went so long that the following song started later than intended) you could just tap the [|<<] button to restart at the beginning of that chapter.
Textual overlays are pretty easy too, if you wanted to display the song title across the bottom at the start/end of each song (MTV-style), or scrolling continuously or whatever.

Sounds like a good project for an MCAD student or somebody looking to build up their portfolio... but if nobody steps up and you're desperate, I'll see if I can figure out which moving-box I packed my DVD burner and slugs in...

Does your player support DVD+R? DVD-R?

Nope
Idon't need audio
Just a series of clips back to back
They don't even need to correspond with anything
Just a bunch of silent clips one after the other
