• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

Download MPEG Streamclip. It's free and it's awesome.

Convert to Apple Pro-Res 422.

That's more for Final Cut. iMovie uses Apple Intermediate Codec files. You'll find that option in MPEGStreamclip.

My apologies.. this could very well be fact. I am a Final Cut user.. I just assumed imovie would be the same.
