    I had a TON of research videos that I transferred to many DVD's (using another machine, not my Mac). Now I would like to take individual CHAPTERS from many of those DVD's and edit them into an iMovie.

    I've read this is not possible???

    I do have TOAST, but can't quite figure out the logistics. Any help is appreciated.

    I'm sure its simple to many of you, but I'm an old guy and its a bit complicated for me.

    Thanks - FINALLY switched over to Mac (loving the hell out of it) - just learning a whole new language - Any help is appreciated

    Try using Handbrake ( to rip the DVDs into .mp4 files that you can then import into iMovie
