You may want to import DVD to Final Cut Pro X to edit the DVD movies. However, Final Cut Pro X does not support DVD importing. Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix this issue. 

Question: “ I have an hour nd 25 minute DVD final project that I thought I had backed up on the hard drive. My mistake. The question is how do a import the video project from the DVD back into Final Cut Pro X? [ Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.2)].” 


On many HD editing forums, a lot of FCP X users have encountered the problems when they import DVD to FCP X for editing.  It gives yourself a headache that's because DVD video does not natively work within FCP X. (The Final Cut Pro X only accepts DV, HDV, P2 MXF (DVC ProHD), XDCAM, and 2K film formats.)  To get the work done, DVD video files must be ripped off the disc and then converted. This process works to rip DVD video for use in any editing application, but in this article we'll optimize for bringing DVD into Final Cut Pro X.
