Import from DVD+R additional images into existing iMovie

Customer Question

Mac OS 10.6.4 with iMovie 09. Am making slide show from photos & video from recent trip. Have been sent a DVD+R with additional images which I am told is to be opened with Windows Media Player. DVD opened to show images but I could not add them to project. I downloaded VLC for Mac and was able to drag some files (Video_TS.BUP and VTS_01_0.IFO) onto
player to view but, again, unable to put into iMovie project. What can I do?

iteachmac :

Hi , If the data is in normal DVD video format , please use Handbrake to rip the dvd to MP4

iteachmac :

Problem solved .

iteachmac :

Thanks.

iteachmac :

Ps , if you want to play a DVD , just drag the Whole " VIDEO_TS folder to the DVD player icon , or dock icon , or in to the VLC playlist if the Mac cant play it normally .

iteachmac :

I hope this helps .

iteachmac :

Hi did you get the reply ?

Customer :

I need to talk to you as I really don't understand what you are saying.

Customer :

I am going off line now but will try again

iteachmac :

Hi If you have a DVD video .

iteachmac :

Insert the DVD in the Mac

iteachmac :

Launch Handbrake .

iteachmac :

The DVD chapters should load in to Handbrake .

iteachmac :

Press start .

iteachmac :

A file is saved to your mac as a video file .

iteachmac :

You can work with the file now in Mac applications .

iteachmac :

Does this help .

iteachmac :

Thanks.

iteachmac :

In the Handbrake application you can also choose an output video format such as Apple TV , see the Apple section in the side bar , and choose Apple TV , Apple TV plays MP4s so the quality of the export should be fine with this setting and be MP4 format , you can try both standard settings or others as you require .

iteachmac :

Handbrake is the best way to take DVD video from DVDs on to your Mac .

iteachmac :

If this fails the DVD maybe in a PC only format , request the video and pictures in a Cross platform format , such as TIFF JPG , MP4 , H.264 , DV video etc .

iteachmac :

Or use Windows on your Mac with parallels desktop to get to the data / video / pictures ..

iteachmac :

parallels desktop does not come with Windows , you will need a copy of windows XP or Windows 7 to use it and activation etc .

iteachmac :

Avoid Windows Vista .

iteachmac :

Your Mac will need at least 4GB , to run windows on your Mac , 8GB i recommend for good use , and a intel CPU is required .

iteachmac :

A mac pro with 8GB should do the job easy .

iteachmac :

A imac core duo or mac mini with 4GB etc , will be harder to get good performance .

iteachmac :

I hope this helps .

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
