How can I rip a DVD with Mpeg Streamclip and maintain broadcast quality for editing in final cut? Is ProRes 422 ideal? Eventually after editing in final cut, I intend on compressing, followed by creating a DVD in DVD Studio Pro. I've tried it with DV but when I did that, every time a person moved in the picture, there was this strobing which wasn't in the original master.

Hi Mike,
Being the DVDs MPEG-2 a 420/8b format, the best codec would be 8b Uncompress.
Prores would be the second best option, and the best if you have no much storage.

Thanks Rafael. Where can I place the 8b Ucompress format? Do I go to file, export to quicktime or one of the other formats?

Yes, export as QT Movie.
Let everything (size, pixels, field order,..) as the original, so you just transcode.

PS: The DV option exports ".dv" (DV Stream) files; the native iMovie format.
Something to be avoided (no TC, 32Khz audio).

But still. You have to realize that footage on a DVD video already has been compressed to MPEG2.

So there already is loss in quality.

You can maintain the quality by converting it to 8 or 10 bit files but the original quality ( what the camera shot ) is gone.

If you can get your hands on the original tapes or footage that's best.

Something we do with SD projects is take the picture directly out of DVD player with a DVI out cable into our camera. And then edit it as normal.

I know that this is an old thread, but it seems to be along the lines of what I am attempting to do...

It was mentioned to 'just transcode'. Great! But what settings do I select to keep the final file as interlaced? The DVD show as lower interlaced. How do I keep it as lower interlaced in the AppleProRes file?
