Let me explain. I offer VHS to DVD conversions as a part of my business, and recently I had a customer ask if I could edit her DVDs down to one disc that she could give to her family as a Christmas gift.

I agreed, and asked her to not the hour:minute:second for each clip she wanted taken from each movie. There are about 10 discs, and up to 15 clips she wants from EACH disc.

I was thinking she would want maybe 2 or 3 clips from each, but I underestimated. Oh well, I charge by the hour :)

Anyway, can anyone recommend a method for creating those clips? I'm planning to rip the DVDs to AVI or MP4, create the clips somehow, then probably just throw the clips into iMovie or something easy. I just don't know what the easiest was to create those clips would be. I don't think iMovie does that. Is there any kind of software out there that does something like this easily and quickly?

For example, she's given me a list like this:

Disc 1
00:13:45 to 00:15:23
00:16:59 to 00:17:18
00:19:46 to 00:25:33
00:28:45 to 00:39:20
00:51:25 to 00:55:27
etc...

You can do that with Final Cut Pro 7 and lower when you are importing your footage. I've not tried it with FCP X or Premier Pro.

Thanks. I only have Premiere Pro CS4 and iMovie at this time. Willing to get something else if necessary though.

Ended up using Aimersoft Total Media Converter. Lets you load DVDs and trim to certain start/end points. You can set all the clips up, hit convert, and it will do them all in one batch. Exports to hundreds of different formats. Very good piece of software.
