How do I get a video off of a DVD and into FCE for editing.
Here's how I do it.
You need: Apple's MPEG 2 QuickTime Component and MPEG Streamclip.
Copy the whole video_ts folder to your hard drive.
Open the DVD (using the video_ts folder you just copied over, not the spinning silver disc one) in MPEG streamclip
select I and O points
Convert to Quicktime and use the DV PAL or NTSC compressor
You will have a Quicktime file that will import straight into FCE.
Your DVD can't have copy protection or this won't work.
I use MPEG Streamclip a lot but there is also Handbrake.
Handbrake is probably the easiest way to do it.
I use Handbrake to rip DVDs for iTunes but not for editing.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but using Handbrake, the workflow would be like this:
rip DVD using Handbrake to H.264 MP4
convert H.264 to (something FCE can edit) using (something else)
import into FCE
Is that about right? If so, can someone fill in the blanks?
