Pulling Individual Clips from Commercial DVD's

Advertisement

Looking for good (preferably free) software that'll allow me to rip specifics clips from a DVD movie in high quality for editing with in imovie. I used to use media converter boxes but do not have that sort of gear available right now. The higher the resolution possible, the better.
Any ideas?

I don't know any free software that will do that. Cinematize 2 will, but it costs something like $60. It works really well - you can set your in and out points anywhere on the DVD, and import the file as DV in full quality. If you then make a DVD from it, it will look as good as the original. Of couse it's not free, and it won't do copy-protected DVDs directly (you can rip them with another program, and then Cinematize will work on the videoTS file).
