Im not sure if its the right forum, but im trying to take a VOB file (out of a dvd) and convert it into an uncompressed, original aspect ratio avi file. I tried Virtual dub and it converts it fine except it takes the 16:9 (original file) and squishes it into a square. Tried playing with the settings, but everything seems to be in order and it still does not keep the 16:9 OAR. I also tried Avex DVD & Video Converter and it keeps the OAR, but only has compressed options like Xvid/DIVX, Mpeg4 for ipod, etc. A professor of mine gave me a DVD of some visuals to use so i could cut them into some interviews i shot, but he gave me the burnt dvd rather than a dvd with an avi file on it. I usually edit from stuff i captured myself from minidv (never have used existing DVD footage in anything ive edited) so im not too familiar with the ripping process. NE sugestions?
