    So let's say that I want to do the following:

    Rip a Blu-ray movie (1080p/DTS HD Master) to my HDD...
    Open that rip in some video editing software (FCPx?)...
    Trim the movie down to a single scene...
    Edit the video to zoom in on the content for a 16x9 viewing experience...
    Burn the final product to Blu-ray.

    1.) How would I go about this?
    2.) How do I ensure zero loss of quality?

    I know how to take a Blu-ray from disc to iTunes (MakeMKV/Handbrake), but what I'm looking for here is a process that enables me to edit the video (extract a mere five minutes, for example) without any loss of quality.

    Thanks so much for the assistance!

    Any thoughts on this?

    Here's what I'm thinking is required...

    Rip the Blu-ray to MKV.
    Use MPEGStreamClip to convert DTS-HD/Dolby TrueHD to AC3.
    Use MPEGStreamClip to trim video.
    Use MPEGStreamClip to output new audio/video file.
    Use Toast/FCPx to burn back to Blu-ray?

    I'm sorry if I'm way off here. I don't quite understand what the limitiations are when importing and editing content from a Blu-ray disc. I would love to be able to simply rip and trim the Blu-ray content without ever converting video or audio, but I can't imagine "editing" DTS-HD Master or Dolby is possible.

    My goal here is to end up with a trimmed clip from a movie that has ZERO loss of quality.
