How to get Premiere Elements work with VOB files
Adobe Premiere Elements with stunning features is a popular video editing tool for us. When you get a lot of VOB videos, you may wanna import VOB to Adobe Premiere Elements to make a home movie. However, the program will not recognize your files imported, as Adobe Premiere Elements does not support VOB video format. Thus, the VOB files must be converted into a supported video file type before Premiere Elements can read them. Below is how to.
As far as we know 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 or edit. As some guys suggest, you can change the file name from *.VOB to *.MPG and then import the MPGs in Adobe Premiere Elements. While, when we tired the way, the files still can't be imported to Premiere Element perfectly. Message says: "File format not supported". It seems that the re-naming method does not work.
In this case, what you need is a professional VOB file converter to convert VOB to MPEG-2 or something Premiere Elements can natively support. To finish the task, you can use Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, the best video converter that can help you transcode VOB as well as MOV, MKV, DivX, MTS, MXF, etc to Adobe Premiere Elements friendly format with high output video quality.
