I wanna edit DVD files in Final Cut Pro on my iMac. My question is: what software I can use (open source or not) to easily convert DVD into FCP compatible format with original quality? Searching from Google and got some recommended solutions for importing DVD to Final Cut Pro X/7/6 easily.

We’d accept the truth, all of the Apple Final Cut doesn’t support DVD video format. If you have some nice DVD movies and want to edit with FCP before sharing, you have to convert DVD to ProRes .mov format compatible with Final Cut Pro. To achieve the goal, a DVD ripping software is essential. Here Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac is recommended to you.

This Mac DVD ripping tool can rip any encrypted DVD and convert DVD to ProRes for using in Final Cut Pro natively. The built-in editor also allows you to extract DVD clips with the very part you want. Or, you can just choose to rip certain chapters of a DVD as you like. Now download the program to learn the DVD to FCP conversion process.
