I'm thinking of purchasing Popcorn for converting homemade DVDs into files compatible to IMovie 9. I've got Toast Titanium 11 already and am beginning to learn Handbrake. Would it be redundant to add Popcorn? I don't mind spending the $50, but of course would rather not

theres no need for popcorn if you have toast.

it can do everything popcorn can.

just rip the footage and encode it with handbrake, then import it to iMovie.

Thanks. Problem is, it is now MPEG-4. I've been told it needs to be in MPEG-4 Simple profile or DV format in order to be imported into IMovie. Any insight into setting Handbrake to get it this way?

Older versions of Handbrake are still available, and they support MPEG, or you can use ffmpegx instead.
Also, though I haven't tried it, there is Video Monkey.

Thanks to those who contributed. For my purposes, I followed the advice of the FAQ on Handbrake and used MPEG Streamclip (free). You have to buy an Apple QUICKTIME MPEG-2 PLAYBACK-MAC OS X-INT for $20, but it's worked really well thus far, converting it into a DV file. Good to go and supposedly not as "lossy" as the alternative.
