*This video was created before Final Cut Pro X. It assumes that you have installed the full version of Final Cut Studio which includes the MPEG-2 Component needed to read most DVDs.

The QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component for Mac OS X can be purchased from Apple.com

As an alternative to this method, check out my video showing you how to use HandBrake to rip a dvd.

Editing inside of Final Cut Pro is awesome but, this can change very quickly if you don't bring in the right formats. In this Final Cut Pro 7 tutorial, I show you how to convert a DVD into a usable file for Final Cut. The application is MPEG Streamclip and can be downloaded at www.Squared5.com Make sure you have the rights to the information that's on the DVD before you use these steps. Please email suggestions or issues you run into. More FCP tutorial videos will come as you suggest topics. FinalCutProHelp@me.com
