I ripped VOB files using DVD Decrypter to the hard drive.
I fire up DVD2AVI 1.76 and save the project and everything seems fine.
I click SAVE AVI and I want to save it and full and uncompressed.
It won't do it. It simply says FINISHED instantly.

I am using XP Pro with Pentium D dual processing.

I simply want to make AVI files, not MPEG 2 files to use
in Premiere Pro.

I also tried DVDx 2.4 and when I try to convert to AVI
it says "Video Codec Not Selected."

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Bruce...if you wanto make AVIs out of your DVDs...then you came to the wrong place.
Well, I guess you can load your *.ifo file in VDubMod.
But I'm sure that the best DVD->AVI(divx/xvid) techniques have their own forums.
Too bad that Phil is out of town cause he seems to know AVI as good as MPEG.

Thanks Rui;

I got things going pretty well. I am looking to use footage from a televised local football game into a video and wanted to preserve the quality and not capture the DVD from a DVD player into my computer.

I ended up using DVDx2.4 and used the Indeo 5.11 codec and got a compression that was very satisfying. I tried Techsmith and even an
Avid 2.0 codec but wasn't too impressed. The Techsmith
sputtered a lot and seemed to have good compression but simply
didn't flow.

At any rate, looks like problem solved. If anyone out there
can recommend a an AVI codec I might have missed, I'd love
to hear about it.

Bruce

If you have a "big enough" harddrive you should use huffyuv codec.
The used space will be huge but then you can load it into tmpgenc or any mpeg2 encoder and you can shrink it to fit into a DVD.
After that you can obviously get loose of the huge AVI and play your ball game in the standalone DVD player .
HuffYUV doesn't really compress much and it uses very low CPU power.
Most of the times that's the kind of codec you need to use when you are capturing video from a camera or from cable.
That's why we use it and not because it is good in compression
