Encoding VOB files for Editing in Pinnacle Studio
There’s a problem that has troubled me for days: I just bought Pinnacle 16. And it cannot seem to import my VOB files. I had been using Pinnacle 12 but it is not compatible it seems with Win 7 64 bit. So I upgraded to 16. I need help for working the VOB files in Pinnacle Studio.

Searched widely and I got some tech support for loading VOB to Pinnacle Studio correctly. VOB is basically a MPEG-2 video file which is stored in Video_TS folder in a DVD. As this kind of video file usually contains one or several audio tracks and subtitle tracks that are multiplexed together into one stream form, it is not so easy to playback directly on PC or Mac.

Once you try to import VOB to Pinnacle Studio for editing, you'll find out that all VOB files in the Video_TS folder are just greyed out. The best and easiest way to import VOB files into Pinnacle Studio is to convert VOB to Pinnacle editable codecs. It can be done effortlessly with the help from Brorsoft Video Converter. It is an optimal VOB to Pinnacle converter for you, which can help you change VOB into a different format like MPEG-2 for Pinnacle Studio with least quality loss.
