Hi. I'm a recent G5 buyer, and I also got FCP HD with my new computer. I'm an aspiring video editor at UT, and just had a quick question. Is there a way to import an entire movie from a commercial dvd (ex. Spider-Man) into FCP so I can put it to music, etc? I would just like to use the footage for exercise purposes, so I can get some practice. I have no intention of illegally duplicating them. I have Handbrake, the ripping software, but unless I'm doing something wrong, I can't get FCP to recognize anything. Quicktime plays the mp4 file, but I'm pretty sure FCP won't. I can also rip as an avi file, but those don't seem to work either. Am I doing something wrong, or is there another software I need to download/buy? Thanks a bunch!
