DVD ripped to FCP

What is the best way to rip DVD data into FCP. (Don't worry about copyright, the video I'm using is public domain)

I've tried handbrake, but FCP doesn't like to recognize the file.

Thanks,
Daniel

Look for a program called Mac the Ripper. I think it's related to handbrake.
Also, you can export multiple formats as far as I know, so find one that will work (ie, try uncompressed if possible).
OR, use quicktime pro to convert to a format that FCP will read, then.
I haven't used those apps much, though, so I'm no expert.

with handbreak you need to be able to edit AVI files. theres a codec out there that you can use that lets you edit a plethora of video files including AVI. You can rip to AVI using handbreak.

Mpeg Streamclip does a good job of exporting DVD video into a variety of formats that FCP can work with.

Blah Everyone has different apps and I've used them all. Ripper / Handbrake is an OK dual but takes forever.


The best for my workflow is called DVDxDV. It's fantastic for exactly what you are trying to do, granted there is no Copy Protection enabled on the disc.

It costs 20 bucks I think - Check here: http://www.dvdxdv.com/

re:

Depends on the files type you want to have once you've ripped. I also use Mac The Ripper (Constantly) which gives me standard Video TS/Audio TS folders. Mac The Ripper is also free if you want to save the 30 dollars.

Then again sometimes working with .VOB files can be a pain in FCP. But what do you have to lose? Not money. Give it a shot and see if it improves your workflow or not.

I actually use both Mac the Ripper and DVDxDV at times. DVDxDV Pro (which I think runs $100 or so) lets you export uncompressed so you're not giving yourself yet another round of compression before you even start to edit.

If you're using a deck to capture your tapes from why not just record onto a dv tape and then log a capture into FCP. Easy, no cost.

You could also save the tape, if your camera will work as an Analogue to Digital Converter

Can some one direct me to that CODEC?

I'll second the suggestion for MPEG Streamclip. It's free, and it works great. You get total control over output to QuickTime, which is obviously what you need to edit in FCP.
