blu ray dvd to after effects How to import video from Blu ray/DVD to After Effects

As a big Blu-ray/DVD discs owner, you may have met the problems when loading BD/DVD movie files into After Effects like this:

In short, what is the best way to rip from a DVD, given that the footage ripped is to be used in Adobe After Effects 6.5?

Currently I’m using Nero Recode 2, which rips quickly, but insists on creating the ripped video is a .mp4 file ie mpeg4 video. After Effects will import this, though it flags that it doesn’t recognise the format, so well done to After Effects for importing a format it doesn’t think it knows.

However once in After Effects, the footage is tremendously (too) slow to work with, and outputting it as a different video format takes hours – I left it running overnight to convert 20 minutes of video to jpegs !!! There must be a better way !!! All help appreciated …

If you want to edit the collected Blu-rays/DVD in Adobe After Effects before sharing, posting or playing, then you need a Blu-ray/DVD to AE Converter.

At first, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper and Blu-ray Ripper for Mac are the converting tools that my friend recommend to me. Easy convert the video files from your Blu-ray/DVD to work with After Effects beautifully with MPEG-2 format in fast speed.

Now I am very impressed with it, it is really a good BD/DVD conversion program to helps me convert my favourite Blu-ray and DVD movies to editable formats not only for After Effects editing, but also for useing in different NLE apps, such as Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro and more. Just follow the step-by-step guide below to get the work done smoothly.

Correctly and losslessly convert Blu-ray/DVD to Adobe After Effects editable format with ease

Step 1. Load source Blu-ray/DVD movie

Launch this Blu-ray Ripper for Win/Mac and click disc button to import Blu-ray/DVD movies into the program. When the movies are loaded, you can select the subtitles and audio track as you like.

To make GoPro Here 3 MP4 footage friendly with FCP, it’s a good choice to convert MP4 to Final Cut Pro best supported video formats, such as Apple Prores MOV, and then you can edit the GoPro Here 3 MP4 video in Final Cut Pro smoothly.

Very easy-to-use and totally painless during the whole conversion from GoPro MP4 to Apple  Prores 422 Codec. Moreover, it’s also capable of digitalizing your Blu-rays and DVDs to MOV or other formats that your editing software will accept; isn’t it cool?

Posted by on Thursday, 6 March, 2014

Tool Download

Pavtube ByteCopy ($42) –Download a trial from HERE (Windows 2003/XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1). The trial copies 7 discs before it STOPS WORKING. Alternative version for Mac (Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, Snow Leopard10.6)

Note: A Blu-ray Disc Drive is required for Blu-ray ripping. The computer must be networked to access BD+ keys for cracking the BD copy-protections.

Guide- Rip a Blu-ray to WD TV Live Plus playable file type with ByteCopy

Source: Blu-ray Disc, BDMV folder, BD ISO; DVD, VIDEO_TS, DVD ISO.

main title How to Rip a Blu ray to WD TV Live Plus and Get audio/subtitles played properly

By default only Title One is retained. Title 1 (Main Title) contains full-length movie, extras are not included.

Optional video codec in a commercial Blu-ray Disc: MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and SMPTE VC-1 stream sealed in .m2ts container.

WD TV Live Plus supported codec in MKV container: H.264/AVC, VC1, WMV9, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4

Which video to keep and which to convert: the WD TV Live HD media player support all the video codec that a Blu-ray movie can include. There’s no need to convert Blu-ray video, unless you’d like to compress the movie to smaller file size (e.g. when ripping BD-50 movies).

Untitled 2 clip image002 How to Rip a Blu ray to WD TV Live Plus and Get audio/subtitles played properly

Optional audio codec in a commercial Blu-ray Disc: LPCM as well as Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Lossless, DTS digital surround and DTS-HD audio formats.

WD TV Live Plus supported audio codec in MKV container: MPEG Aduio, PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS, AAC. An audio receiver is required for multi-channel surround sound digital output. If you connect WD TV Live Plus directly to TV you get stereo only.

Which audio to keep and which to convert: LPCM audio must be converted, since the codec is not compatible with MKV container. When a MKV file contains LPCM audio, it is not playable. Dolby Digital and DTS audio can be kept (by checking “Check” box). Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD HR and DTS-HD MA audio should be converted to Dolby Digital, i.e. AC3 (by checking “Check” and “Encode” boxes) if you’re using 5.1 audio system.

Untitled 2 clip image006 How to Rip a Blu ray to WD TV Live Plus and Get audio/subtitles played properly

Subtitles in a commercial Blu-ray Disc: .sup subtitles with PGS codec.

WD TV Live Plus supported subtitles: SRT, SSA, ASS, and SAMI

Which subtitles to keep and which to convert: Although the WD TV Live Plus plays Blu-ray subtitles from BD ISO/BDMV, it does not support PGS subtitles in MKV container. So here you need to convert sup subtitles to dvdsub format.
