How to Convert VOB files for Editing in Pinnacle Studio
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 11/12 for editing, you'll find out that all VOB files in the Video_TS folder are just greyed out. That's because VOB is not supported by Pinnacle Studio.
