This question is for my school; it does not deal with piracy in any way whatsoever. We have a movie we had someone make for us... it is a dramatization about how our school began, a small music school for students with special needs.

I have the DVD in front of me. We need funding for a student to come back next year. In the package we're sending out by email, we want a few short clips from this DVD.

My issue is how to achieve this. I was thinking I would rip the DVD via Mac The Ripper... but can I then import into iMovie?, will iMovie recognize it? If so, I can isolate a clip and export it, I would think?

Any suggestions most appreciated. Thanks so much.

For isolating small clips and saving them in an emailable size I use
MPEG Streamclip

Its simple and basic but gets the job done with the minimum of fuss, and has a good range of encoding options

I use it for the sales staff at work who often want clips out of corporate DVDs for their presentations

Thank you. I downloaded MPEG streamclip. I don't get how to set my in and out points though, for export. Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks.
