It's a great fun if you have a pretty large Blu-ray collection for sharing with your friends or familiars. When you have the digital copies of these movies saved on your hard drive or personal server, you may also like to edit Blu-rays in FCP, iMovie, FCE, Adobe Premiere Pro, or other nonlinear editing programs.

In this case, it comes with the problems that iMovie, FCE can’t directly ingest Blu-ray files. So, how can we rip Blu-ray movies for iMovie/FCE editing?
