File Conversion for iMovie?

I'm a new Mac user... Trying to convert home movies from a DVD (my video camera isn't Mac compatible, unfortunately) to a file format supported by iMovie. Can't seem to find a good conversion software. I looked at Handbrake, but their website indicated their software output format, MPEG4, wasn't good for iMovie editing. Can this be right? Any input would be GREATLY appreciated! (I have a MacMini)

I recently downloaded Handbrake to convert my homemovies and everything worked great. The MPEG4 was fine for video editing.
