So I did a little math, and it seems that whether all the VOB files from a 26-episode DVD set are present while editing a video or not (I'm talking about replacing low-quality AVIs with DVD-quality footage using the duplicate project trick), there just isn't enough space.
The logical solution is get an 80 Gig HD, right?
Not so much approval from my parents on that idea.
Put simply, they told me to research other ways I can manage the VOB files on my computer to avoid the collective VOB size/HD space ratio issue. The only one that popped into my head was analouge capture via a capture card. But I don't have one of my own, so once again, that would require some dolla dolla bill.
They seem to understand that all those 1.2-1.4 Gig epiodes need to be ON a hard drive when exporting the video. They don't, however, adhere to the idea that I need all 26 episodes on the HD at once to keep my options open. That would require "selective ripping", but I don't know any AMV creators that have their videos 100% planned out down to every last frame. (There probably are, but I'm definitely not one of them. Wish I could be, though...) So I can't just decide that I need a clip from an episode that isn't already ripped, only to realize that the HD is already full. I'd also have to keep about 2 Gig left over for the raw, uncompressed output of the AMV.
The other issue, which concerns me more, is that a lot of stuff is being invested in the computer I have right now; the plan is to buy a brand new one for college in two years. And I'm not sure if I can find all the junk I stuck in my motherboard to transfer to a new comp, let alone remove it all. An extra hard drive would only complicate things more.
This may seem like mission impossible, but I might just be shortsighted on the issue. If anyone can think of an answer to this paradox it'd be much appreciated.

This will allow you to just save the parts of the vobs you need - then by using those via avisynth or some other technique you can edit directly from those dvd scenes.
