      I have DVDs of films I have worked on. I want to download clips into my Adobe Premier Pro to create a demo reel of my work. What is the best way to get hi-quality clips from the commercial DVDs?

      You will lose quality no matter what you do. The DVDs are already a highly compressed MPEG 2 format and you will be uncompressing, converting, and recompressing, losing quality. You can use the free tool MpegStreamclip to get the VOB files converted to DV-AVI format for Premiere. You can also rip the DVDs with Premiere Elements (versions 2 – 4) and export a DV-AVI file from there to work on in Premiere Pro. This is one of the features that Premiere Elements has that the Pro version does not.
