How to Convert DVD to iMovie on Mac?

"I have a MacBook and Mac 10.9 OSX installed.
If I get a DVD, pop it in, and want to edit it for content i.e. (make an R-rated film more PG-13) can I use iMovie? Or what would be the best way to do it? Please help."

If you want to edit your DVD movie with iMovie, you need to convert the DVD to video format that is supported by iMovie. On one hand, iMovie is a handy video editor tool for Mac users but it does not support DVD. iMovie supports MPEG-2, AVCHD, DV-Standard, HDV (High Definition Video), QuickTime Movie and MEPG-4 formats instead. On the other hand, most commercial movie DVDs are encrypted. If you would like to edit the movie, you may have to remove the protection firstly and then convert DVD to the file format that can be recognized by iMovie.
