So, you don't have the original iMovie project?
You need to convert the VOB files in the TS-Folder of the DVD back to DV which iMovie is designed to handle. For that you need mpegStreamclip:
which is free, but you must also have the Apple mpeg2 plugin :
which is a mere $20.
Another possibility is to use DVDxDV:
which costs $25.
For the benefit of others who may read this thread:
Obviously the foregoing only applies to DVDs you have made yourself, or other home-made DVDs that have been given to you. It will NOT work on copy-protected commercial DVDs, which in any case would be illegal.
As for your lack of hard drive space, you will have to ensure that you have at least 15-20GB of free space.
No, the project is long gone - I just noticed a glitch in the menu on the DVD that I did with iDVD so now I have to do the project over.
I did use mpeg streamclip and created a DV - but it was a pretty big file and the fact that you have to not only have the DV, it doubles the space on the hard drive when you import it into iMovie - yes, I can delete the original DV once imported to regain space, but I don't have enough space on the hard drive for the sake of actually using this method - I tried though. I also have the mpeg plugin - I am a big fan of mpeg streamclip
I was wondering if there was another way of doing this that takes less space?
Thanks for the suggestions though! always appreciated.
