Yeah, getting VDub configured can be a pain. It just takes some getting used to--I never went to any classes on it. :p There are plenty of sites (two mentioned already) out there with a ton of info (tutorials, etc.) on using programs like VDub. To be honest, I mostly use it to compress .vob files to XviD, and AutoGK does most of that for me. Still, it's great for chopping/reassembling AVIs, producing screengrabs, dumping audio, and so on.
