Easier. When rendering video, just go into the settings for whichever format you selected (the button is at the bottom of the window that pops up when you hit "render" and disable audio. Usually it's under a tab marked "audio" or somesuch. To just export audio, select on of the available audio formats: WAV, AC3, MP3 (not recommended, obviously, but it's there) and so on. Also, nothing wrong with bumping threads like this one. :)

Thanks Aztek463, that two I owe you :)

I think that button is "Customize Template", and then there is a tab for "Audio". Now I know why I couldn't play the sony avc file; it seems to be an elementary video stream.

Having an issue. I love this tutorial, this is pretty much what got me going in Vegas, so thanks, Boon.

So far, the step by step of this tutorial has been flawless, no issues ripping Episodes I-VI of Star Wars for my television show edit. I've start today ripping the deleted scenes from the retail DVDs. I got through Episode I no issues, but when I try to do Episode II, every time the same issue:

-I rip with DVD Fab (doesn't matter if I rip the whole DVD or if I single out the deleted scenes file and rip only that. These deleted scenes total about 12 minutes
-PGCmux splits up the audio and video for me.....files are still about 12 mins
-headache does it's thing....files are still 12 minutes
-as soon as I load the video file in to VirtualDub, even before compressing options and adding audio, I click "File">"File Information" and the video is now 16 minutes.

I thought, maybe it's an error somewhere but will fix itself after running through VirtualDub. After running video/audio through, I come up with a file that is slower than the DVD, significantly (which likely makes up my 4 minute difference) and the audio is obviously out of sync due to the video being longer.

I've done nothing different than on any other DVD rip. When I watch the DVD in any DVD player, BR player, PS3, PS4....all the deleted scenes play just fine.

Thoughts, suggestions?

I'm likely outta here for the night, but any help over the next couple of days would be appreciated. Thanks!

Well I'm finally trying to attempt my first edit and things have fallen apart immediately. I've ripped a DVD and used PGCdemux to extract the audio and video streams. I also used HeadAC3he to convert the AC3 audio to wave. When I import them into Vegas (14.0) they don't have the same length. They should all be 45:26 (that's what the DVD shows and how the ripped version plays), but when I import the audio it comes in just slightly longer at 45:28:29, and the video comes way too long at 47:21:18. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong, and I don't even know enough about this software to ask the right questions. Someone please take pity on the noob and give me a hint.

Sounds like a frame rate problem. Check to make sure your source frame rate and your ripped file's frame rate match. If it's TV from the USA they should both be 29.97fps. if it's PAL region tv they should both be 25fps. If the source and rip don't match, it's possible your ripper allows you to change the frame rate, and it has some unhelpful choice selected by default.
