    I want to put a movie on my son's iPad. We own the DVD. I used handbrake and some other program to do this in the past. This time I want to delete some inappropriate for his age scenes. Is there an easy... Cheap way to do this? This movie is not available on iTunes.

    Convert it to an mp4 then open iTunes then copy and paste it to you devices media folder.

    Once you have it copied over, open iMovie and drag the scenes to the top left of the window (It shows you where and is quite user friendly) then you can cut out the things you don't want him too see and save the edited version....Depending on how much you are going to cut out, it may be a bit strange to watch though.

    Great thanks! I was wondering if iMovie would let me edit a regular movie. It's okay if it's weird to watch... It's for my 6 year old.
