I've found a few relevant threads on this board and elsewhere, but I can't find a satisfactory answer, so I'm going to give it a shot. Basically, I have a DVD that I want to edit and eventually produce an AVI, MP4, or something along those lines. The editing is pretty basic, just removing sections and correcting the audio with crossfades and the like. The problem is that the only way I know to do this is to rip with the likes of Handbrake, edit with a program like iMovie or even QuickTime Pro, then export again. I'd really like to avoid the quality loss of the intermediate format. This involves either lossless editing of the already-encoded video à la Fission, or directly editing the DVD video prior to conversion. Is there any way to do this? I'm not adverse to spending a bit of money, but under a hundred dollars would be nice. I do have access to Final Cut Pro, but I'm not too familiar with it and don't know if even it could do what I'm after. Any ideas?
