    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro Mac OS X 10.6.6
    Lightbulb DVDxDV, Roxio Popcorn or DVD Ripper for Mac???
    I recently got a new MacBook Pro and I need to buy software for extracting DVD clips to import to iMovie. I used DVDxdv on my other computer buy it would freeze and jump a lot. I don't mind paying but I only want to buy the best one. It needs to have a time counter and be able to get small clips off a DVD. I am using it to make sports highlight videos from DVD's of the games that the school gives me. I also want the best quality video possible and I don't know much about settings. I use iMovie and iDVD but I am considering Final Cut Express. I've tried to read and research but I'm still confused. I even asked at the Apple Store and they were clueless. Please help!

    what are you trying to rip?

    handbrake will encode video from a dvd to H.264 (mp4)

    it wont rip copy protected DVDs, and noone on this forum will tell you how to do that.

    HandBrake

    if you wanna know a little bit about how to use it, i have a tutorial in the description.

    you can make edits in the movie or clip with MPEG streamclip.

    Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac OS X

    they are both free btw.

    I have Handbrake and I like it but you can't take just clips of the DVD, can you? I am making a football highlight video from a DVDs of games so I don't want to put the whole 60 min. game on my computer when I might only need 3 min. of it.
    I will try MPEG Streamclip. Thank you for your reply.

    if there are multiple vob segments on the dvd you could encode just the segment you wanted. however you would still have to encode the whole segment.
