    Actually you need a step before iMovie/iDVD. Use something like Handbrake (look for it on google or versiontracker) to get the video from the DVD to you Mac. You can then import the video into iMovie (providing you've ripped it in a video format that iMovie likes). You can then cut the DVD however you wish and bring it into iDVD to burn the DVD.

    Also please don't double post.

    No biggie. Some people are not aware that double posting isn't good practice. But anyhow...

    Handbrake is located here. It is free. iMovie and iDVD of course are part of iLife and are free only if they came with your Mac or what not. Otherwise you will have to purchase iLife and that is typically $50.

    DVD2OneX will take a DVD and recompress the contents to fit it onto a 4.2 gig DVD disc. However the format of the video and audio is a .VOB file and cannot be brought into iMovie. The only use I know of for DVD2OneX is to reproduce a DVD that would otherwise not be burnable onto your "standard" sized DVD disc.

    Using Handbrake you can recompress a DVD to an AVI file or some other such format. These can (depending on which type you make it) be brought into iMovie.
