    Ripping back from my own DVD?
    Hey chaps,

    I worked on a film last year with a local guild, they gave me the DVD, and i want to make a trailer, and add parts of it to my portfolio, but i have no idea how to get it onto i-movie.

    can anyone help?

    i assure you, its for an independant film i myself worked on, and i have permission from the director himself to modify its contents, but i need to do this quickly so i dont want to have to turn to the team and get the original cuts.

    any ideas?

    Try Handbrake. It'll rip the DVD into a format that can be edited by iMovie.

    I believe the Macbook Pro of death is one of the newer models so the Intel version is the one you want.

    If you actually have a Macbook Pro of minor ailements then it's the older PPC version.

    To be doublely certain click the Apple logo top left and 'About this Mac' - it will tell you which Processor you have Intel or PPC.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Why my MP4 video converted by handbrake cannot be imported?
    The native format that handbrake rips into should import right in without isses.

    You want to download the GUI version of hanbrake and before ripping go into picture options and make sure you arent going to wind up with a lot of artifacting, if you are tweak with the interlace settings until your happy with the preview.
