picking up the thread again on transferring non-protected DVD files
onto a Mac...[or PC]
I've found (and bought) Cinematize --a program for both Mac and
Windows that will take the DVD files and translate them digitally to
Quicktime, MPEG-2 and/or a bunch of other formats (and extract the
video if you want). The downside is that that's all it can do ...and
it costs $60.
After an agonizingly slow translation-process (about 8x real time on
my 500MHz dual G4), however, Cinematize delivers beautiful
full-fidelity files --and using .dv stream output you can import
files of any length into older versions of iMovie...
I'm still researching outboard boxes for analog-input -to- Firewire
stream conversions, and I'll probably get one of those (or a PCI
card) for VHS transfers, but Cinematize at least took care of my
Hyped to Death CDs
