If it isn't encrypted, convert it in Handbrake first.

No encryption. Thank you very much.

In that case, Handbrake should rip straight from the disc.

I was planning to use Handbrake to generate a file that I would feed to VP20. You are suggesting that HB can be used as a VP20 plug-in?

Handbrake is not a vegas plug in. Suggest you Google handbrake, download & install.

There are many ready made templates built in. Maybe a little research on utube would help.

Good luck.

Thank you. That kind of threw me a bit.

Sorry, Handbrake is a separate, open-source GPL application with no connection whatsoever to Vegas, which is a commercial application. We use it so much, it is more like a country cousin.

You should make a Constant Frame Rate file in Handbrake for trouble-free import.

Others here are also recommending Shutter Encoder, once again an entirely separate encoding application. IDK if it rips straight from disk. Google is your friend 😏

Got it. Thank you very much. I'm confident this will take care of my dilemma. All the best...Ed
