Yikes, don't do that! MP4 brings in a whole new set of compression artifacts and is a waste of time.

Cinematize is a decent pay program and the only one that can export the DVD subtitles track into a QuickTime movie but it's expensive compared to the free MPEGStreamclip.

Recording the DVD to DV tape or using the DV camera as an analog to digital converter are good ways to go as well. The image is excellent.

I've used ImToo Ripper which gives you a variety of formats to choose from. I usually choose avi or wmv, (but there's a whole list of other file types to pick from as well). Either of those that I select goes easily onto the timeline in Premiere. For the Mac -->
