Basically it all boils down to this: I want to join 50-60 clips on one disc as a single title with chapter breaks. I went round and around trying to do this with 5 different apps, and failed. So, I wanted to just put them into an editor like vegas or premiere and export a new clip as a whole (and use a cheap dvd software item to make the chapters). I have 2 types of MPEG2 files I'm trying to join- ones I exported from Vegas, and ones I exported from TMPGenc. The problem is Vegas will not recognize the TMPGenc files, and Premiere 6 will not open either. TMPGenc will open the vegas files- but their join function is not useful to me: 1) I'd like to add a title card to each clip. 2) The audio files are seperate- so I can join the video, but not the audio. I just wanna be able to open my files (which read fine in media player by the way)- drop them into an editor and output a standard MPG2 file. This seems, so far, to be impossible. Any suggestions?
