    We are making a movie at work and its going to have a bunch of different scenes off of

    http://www.remotecentral.com/features/bestdvd8.htm

    The problem is, the only way ive done scene captures from dvds is just through a tv in input or a screen capturing program like camtasia. I need to get these scenes with 5.1 dts surround and every other effect that the scenes have. I don't know how im going about capturing the scenes, but everything after that I can take care of from that format to burning it to a dvd.

    Has anyone ever done chapter capturing or anything like I'm doing??

    Try DVD Decrypter. It's a great freeware tool.

    EDIT: Oh, and if you want to multiplex (combine video and sound into one file) try this guide. You may have to sign up for those forums though.

    DO you know if that will carry over the sound as in 5.1&Dts?

    The AC3 files produced by the demux step will contain the audio in 5.1 or DTS format.

    Video and audio are multiplexed and stored on a DVD as .VOB files. There is no software that lets you edit vob files directly, so software like the one in that forum thread linked to by oz02 demultiplexes (demux) the video and audio tracks into seperate files that you can edit using existing software. Demuxing usually produces an MPEG2 file containing the video portion and one or more AC3 files containing the audio tracks. After you mess with the video and audio, you can stitch them back together into a DVD using DVD authoring software.

    When you say muxer are you talking about the forum that I linked to with the guide, or the Decrypter (which, as skinjob said, is a demuxer)?
    I've worked succesfully with both, so it should work fine. What OS are you running?
