I'm trying to use iMovie to edit clips from DVDs I recorded on a DVR from VHS tapes. They are older videos from performances I've been in or produced, directed, etc. I have a Panasonic DVR and after I format the DVD on it, the only ap on my computer that will play it is the VLC player, and the clips appear on my hard drive as .VOB files. When I try to load clips into iMovie, an error message says Quicktime cannot parse the file. I used Mac the Ripper to download it off the DVD disk, so the clips are on my hard drive. Then I tried loading them into Toast, which seems to do the processing but then totally hangs when the progress bar is complete. Should I try to download from a DVD that hasn't been formatted on my DVR? Anyone have any tips, or a better way to do this whole process? Thanks!
