Change VOB to MPEG (mpg) for After Effects (CC, CS6, CS5) Editing

You might have ever given some footage on a formatted DVD (ie VOB files) or you yourself copied DVD to VOB before to protect DVD discs from scratching, destroying and damaging. Someday, when you have the need of editing this VOB file in After Effect, for example, you need to import the VOB files to After Effects to cut up and add some extra text animation and you would find that you can't import and edit VOB files in After Effects (CC, CS6, CS5).

The reason is easy to understand that After Effects (CC, CS6, CS5) just can't accept VOB files. Fortunately, you can use some video tools to help you achieve it. The VOB files are essentially MPEG files. All you need to do is to change the file extension from .VOB to .MPG. You can then use the MPG file directly in After Effect.
