Question: So my problem is that a lousy videographer recorded my wedding video and gave me a tacky DVD. I want to be able to download the DVD so I can edit it on Final Cut Studio. The problem is that I don’t know how. I tried ‘mactheripper’ but it gave me a mpg and it only gave my the tacky disk menu the “videographer” used, not the actual movie. I also tried just taking the video_ts files but to convert it I would need to buy something and I want to be sure it’ll work. Plus I don’t want just the tacky disc menu to download like what happened with the ‘macthe ripper’. Thank You in advance.
Jason answers: Hello!
Have you tried Handbrake? It should be able to decode those video_ts files to a format that you can import into Final Cut Pro, plus it’s free!
