Okay, here's the deal: I'm trying to assemble my demo reel to start sending off with my resumé to different post-houses... hopefully they'll watch it and go "WE MUST HIRE THIS MAN!" However, some of the material I want to include only lives on DVD now. I've ripped the stuff back off the DVD and demuxed it (I only need the video), but I can't trim out the portions I need in QuickTime. Any selection I make doesn't matter, the Cut/Copy/Paste options in the Edit menu are grayed out. And, unfortunately, since I need to get this stuff into After Effects, I have to convert it to some other format since AE claims QT movies containing MPEG-2 video have no length and thus can't be imported. I also don't want to lose quality in the intermediate, but I don't want to have to convert one entire VOB to some ridiculously huge lossless file (might not have the HD space for it). I already tried a piece of Shareware called SimpleMovieX, it crashed trying to load the M2V. Any suggestions?
