DVD rip
on Oct 29, 2010 at 2:41:15 pm

Hello,

I have a DVD of a live music performance that I want to rip to my computer, converting it into a FCP-compatible file. (And yes, I do own the DVD.)

I have already ripped an m4v file with a free software I downloaded called Handbrake. It seems to have produced a 20-gig video file that refuses to open in any application: iTunes, FCP, Compressor.

So, I'm wondering how to best approach this. Thanks for any help!

While it's nice that you own the DVD, it doesn't mean squat from a copyright-holder's point of view. Mere ownership of a copyrighted CD or DVD doesn't give you the RIGHTS to the content contained on it.
You'd better be doing this for personal use only. If you're thinking of a destination like YouTube, you're skating on thin ice.

use Mpeg Streamclip to convert to ProRes for use in FCP.

you can try working direct from the DVD, but if that has copyright protection,
then you'll need to use Mac The Ripper to get the files from the DVD to your computer first,
then use Mpeg Streamclip.
