    hi all
    i need to rip some dvds, maybe cut some scenes out and then burn the whole thing onto dvd.
    figured i was gonna use imovie for cutting and idvd for making dvd menu and burning it.
    right?

    but in which format do i best rip it in the first place?

    it scenes must be good enough quality to be able to show them on beamers.
    thanks

    What I would do for maximum quality: rip the video stream I want, then open it in MPEG Streamclip and cut out the part I don't want losslessly (requires Quicktime MPEG-2 comp.), then save it back to MPEG.

    Build the menu with iDVD then use the data-swapping technique to avoid reencoding.

    But I tend to go for the most intricate solution...

    :eek: oh nonono not good
    needs to be simple yeah :eek:

    i've tried handbrake which works fine for ripping an entire dvd, used mp4 is that good? or what fileformats would u recommend? again, it is for beamer, so quality would have to be not too bad.

    maybe it would be smarter though to be able to just rip what i actually need, is there any ripper in which you can simply position a start and stop marker (somewhat like in final cut or so) to tell it to rip from here to there?
