This article offers you a guide on converting Video_TS to iMovie supported video for opening and editing Video_TS in iMovie smoothly.
I have got some DVDs and every disc has a folder called VIDEO_TS. What I want to do is to import these Video_TS into iMovie. As I know, iMovie is not able to support Video_TS, a DVD file structure. As far as I know, what I need do in advance is to convert Video_TS to QuickTime for iMovie.
To finish the conversion task easily, a Video_TS converter is the key. Tried several similar tools, finally I decided on Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac, which is an easy-to-use Vidoe_TS converting tool for us. With it, you can fast encode Video_TS to iMovie friendly AIC .mov videos as well as many other professional codecs like ProRes for FCP, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, etc. Now follow the step-by-step guide for you.
