VOB editing in Premiere Pro is here

Finally ... at last ... what took them so long ...

These are the comments that greeted Dave Helmly's announcement that Premiere Pro CS4 now supports .VOB file editing (with the 4.1 update). Yes, you read that right, you can now work directly from non-encrypted DVDs in Premiere Pro CS4.

Some field personnel are using DVD recorders to capture the CVBS output from a DVR when all else fails - no other output options and imaging the HDD is not a viable option. Others use video cameras that record straight to DVD. Now, you can work with these DVDs in Premiere Pro. How cool is that?

It's been a long time in coming ... and I sure am glad that the time is now.
