1) do you need just a part of the disk, or the whole content? data is splitted into 2GB chunks on DVD, so for importing a longer movie you should select 'all'
2+3) for iMovie AppleIntermediate
4) has no effect for AIC, keep it untouched
6) is your disks content wide-screen (16:9) or standard (4:3)?
7) Streamclip cares … keep as is

Thank you for your reply. A couple of follow-up questions:
1. I need to import the whole 110 minute disk, thus will select "Open all files".
3. OK, I will set at Apple Intermediate Codec.
4. I won't touch the slider - will leave it at the midpoint (50%) - which is the default position on the window.
5. For the frame size setting, how do I determine the size on the disk I am importing? Where does it give me this info? Once I determine this info, do you suggest I select that same frame size in the Streamclip menu?
6. Should I leave all other boxes unchecked and not adjust any other settings?

4) doesn't matter - 50%, 90%, 11.3% = the slider has no effect for AppleIntermediateCodec,
5) sorry for bothering you with tech details:
a videoDVD is by standards always 720x480 ... (aside outside US, then 756x576);
if the DVD offers 'real' widescreen = not letterboxed, but filling a 16:9 screen, the 720x480 are 'anamorph'; in conversion you should 'stretch' it to 854x480 (=16:9)
6) other settings not needed
