Hello! My girlfriend likes to do AMV's (Animation Music Videos). It means she takes short clips from various movies (mainly animation movies) and arranges them on top of a soundtrack so it fits the music. She can do that pretty well, that's not the problem. The problem is, to make the clips, she uses a digital photo camera to film the video playing on the computer screen. Yes, you read right, she films the screen. As you can imagine, the quality is less (much less) than stellar. What I need to know, being the complete newbie to video editing is the following : Is there a piece of software that would allow her to rip only selected parts of a DVD movie (I don't mean chapters, I mean 5-15 sec clips) to hard drive and/or same thing but with DivX/Xvid/H.264/Mpeg2 movies?? She does that only for fun though, so no need to tell me about copyright issues and the like. It stays in the home and she only uses movies we own, or DivX/Xvid clips of home footage. I know about Handbrake etc. but I don't want to rip a complete DVD or even a complete chapter. I want to be able to rip only specific sections that I would define with a start and finish frame.(pardon my potentially incorrect vocabulary). Any ideas? BTW, She's using Tiger 10.4.6 on a 17" iMac CoreDuo, has access to iMovie and maybe even FCE/FCP (friend will be lending us his copy so we can try it). Thanks!
