How Can I Upload And Edit A DVD In iMovie?
Before you even start to upload or import your DVD to iMovie for editing, please make sure it is not DRM protected copies. Otherwise, it would be a conduct of violating or breaching the copyright and hence, won’t be imported to iMovie. Make sure that it is your homemade DVD before editing it with iMovie. You will notice that there are other types of files contained in the DVD folder as well, but you will only need the .vob file extension for editing purposes. The .vob file is only a container and in it you will be able to find separate video as well as audio file or codec.
You need to either clear off the extraneous files in the DVD’s master folder before importing the DVD to iMovie or simply just export the .vob file to work with. There are various reasons as to why it fails to upload such as the large file size, incompatible file format or even codec. For the former, all you need to do to resolve the problem is just a straightforward storage clean-up. However, there’s a need for a video converter if it’s for the later. My recommendation would be the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac.
1 Drag in your DVD .vob files
Some video converter might require you to convert and save your video files to a specific file format before you can convert it to a supported iMovie file type. The Video Converter Ultimate on the other hand can import your DVD .vob file directly. This certainly saves a lot of hard work. Just simply drag-n-drop your DVD .vob files. If you ever need to convert more than just a single video file, don’t worry. The Video Converter Ultimate is equipped with batch conversion’s ability.
2 Convert DVD to iMovie
Please select iMovie from the Editing toolbar at the bottom of the screen before you hit the Convert button. You can easily retrieve your converted DVD .vob file by clicking on the prompted message upon the completion of the conversion process. As simple as that, now you can upload and start to edit your DVD in iMovie!
Other Features Available
Besides converting your DVD so it’s compatible for editing in iMovie, you can also use the Video Converter Ultimate to convert your DVD so it’s playable and watchable on your other portable devices or even upload it for online sharing. Check-out other options from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen!
