Video editing I am trying to capture video from Sony DVD-RW to edit a movie. I have Prism for converting the Sony encoded files into avi which is what windows movie maker recognises.However Prism is just capturing part of the movie. Out 1.2 GB that I've recorded PRism is only capturing some 60 MB. Also it seems to work VOB formats for conversion. I am not insisting on Prsim as long as I learn howto capture by DVD on to Windows Movie maker
