importing dvd to FCP HD

    I have an old Buster Keaton short I want to import into FCP HD. I teach film and want my students to add new soundtracks to the old film. The DVD is a commercial one and I can copy it onto my hard drive but it won't be imported into FCP. I recently bought Quicktime Pro as well but that didn't help. Any suggestions?

    Use MacTheRipper to decode and extract the contents of the DVD.

    Take the resultant Video_TS folder and use DVDxDV (choose the Pro one if you prefer) to convert it to Quicktime. This Quicktime file can be directly used in Final Cut.

    Woh, this is old.

    iDVD is fine for me. I prefer it over Toast for burning my own movies i.e. movies that I have cut in Final Cut or iMovie.
