Default Christmas DIY-Rip DVD (VOB files) to AVI for editing on Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X

Christmas DIY-Rip DVD (VOB files) to AVI for editing on Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X


Christmas Day is on the way. Do you have some special plans beside some traditional activities? As for me, I plan to make a special home video with my collected DVD movies. First, I need to edit them on Final Cut Pro and then merge them into a big file so that it could be played on my WD TV Live for sharing with my family on Christmas Day.

When I imported DVD files into FCP, they were not recognized by this program which made me annoying. I searched related information online and finally found out the reason caused it that is DVD has two video formats (MPEG and VOB). Only MPEG files can directly add and edit in FCP while VOB can not accept. Therefore, we have to convert/rip DVD to the formats workable to FCP.

Here I will show you the easiest way to rip DVD to AVI (lossless format) for editing on FCP with a reliable program called [b]Moyea DVD Ripper for Mac[/b].

Preparation: Free download [b]Moyea DVD Ripper for Mac[/b] here, install and run it.
