Forgive me for being a bit off topic - I'm not sure if what I'm planning to put together will be shown indoors or out.

What I'd really like to do is have a continuously running "clip-show" of old horror movies for our Halloween party.  I just purchased a box set of 250 public domain horror movies from Amazon.  These are spread over 60 DVD's.  I could get in to each disk, rip certain scenes, and splice them all back together, but that could take a LOT of time (something that is limited between now and Halloween.

Any advice?  A pre-made disc that I could purchase somewhere would be idea.

Thanks

Are they copy protected?

It is really hard to discuss in this forum if they are. There are ways around it. You'd need to do some 'net searching. Makes it easy and fast to do what you want to do. Rightly or not, I think the name has been posted elsewhere in the forums. You might want to search some of the forums using key words of what you want to do.

Good luck.

What I'd do:

Rip using dvd fab decrypter
Edit via dvdshrink
burn with nero

I'll assume a 2hr movie so using 2 min clips you'll need 60 scenes or so.

Maybe I mis-stated my initial post.

I know how to get what I want off of the DVD's I ordered.  What I was really looking for is a disk that already has that ready to go.  Ripping 60 two minute segments is going to take a while in front of the computer.

And, FWIW, all of these films are in the public domain.  While ripping them might technically violate the DMCA, it does NOT infringe on anyone's copyright, therefore, my conscience WILL allow me to sleep at night.

While there are dvds out there that showcase scary scenes from the movies, the problem is that each scene usually has a long setup time before the good stuff happens. And in a halloween display, you wouldn't want all of that setup time because the TOT's will lose patience and the intent/effect is lost.

In order to maximize effect and minimize time, I'd suggest just doing 10 or so scenes and keep looping them over. That I know won't take much time at all.
