    Looking for help.

    I'm running Tiger and have Final Cut Studio. I am looking to take a DVD (yes, I know that it's copyrighted) of a movie that I purchased and edit out the R rated material.

    I've got an ok handle on editing, but how do I bring in the audio and video from the DVD?

    Anyone got an idea?

    Handbrake. Handbreak. Don't know how to spell it. Don't care to look it up.

    Yeah, Handbrake would probably be the best choice. It will pull the video and audio off the DVD to your exact specifications and then save the video as an .mp4 or H.264 so it will be nice and easy to edit. Mac the Ripper will pull it off the DVD, but it will be in a VIDEO_TS folder, and then you'll have to run it through Handbrake to make it editable (I think so at least, unless Final Cut can edit straight from that, but I don't have it so I'm not sure) and Handbrake does it all at once, so it'll probably be easier. Here's a great article on all the different options in Handbrake which will help you get the best results.
