    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the whole video editing thing. I have a friend who needs to convert a DVD to AVI or something compatible to be edited in FCP. What is the best way to accomplish this? She's at the tail end of a doc she and her husband have been making for years.


    Thanks in advance.

    VisualHub works nicely. It'll convert the DVD to DV which should maintain quality for them to work with in FC.

    convert to a Quicktime Movie using the DV-NTSC codec

    mpegStreamclip is another good option
