I just recently got a new MacBook Pro (running High Sierra) and switched back to Mac after trying PC out for a few years.  I previously used PavTube as it works well especially converting to ProRes for use in Final Cut Pro X just as ssj mentioned.  I never had any issues with MakeMKV but I would say it's a little concerning that ssj has.

One caveat I would throw out there is that after installing PavTube on my new MacBook Pro, it had compatibility issues with High Sierra and would constantly crash.  According to various forums, app compatibly issues is prevalent with that version of the OS.  I have access to an older Mac running Mavericks and PavTube runs perfectly on that, so the issues are definitely with High Sierra.  PavTube easily rips DVDs and Bluray and converts them to ProRes which you can directly import into FCPX.  If you are running High Sierra I might recommend trying to downgrade and if you aren't on High Sierra I might recommend not upgrading if you want to continue to fanedit.

I still used MAC THE RIPPER, combined with MPEG STREAMCLIP after all these years. Big Grin 
Though I don't know if it works on Blu Rays....?

Since Pavtube is unreliable in high Sierra and nonfunctional as I understand it in Mojave, just checking to see what Mac users’ workflow is these days when using a Blu ray source?

I personally never have any issues with pavtube functionality on high Sierra but I do also find myself using make mkv since pavtube isn’t always able to rip certain Blu-ray’s.

Yes, make mkv has been reliable... what do you use to convert the mkv to prores or AIC?

I usually go from Make MKV to handbrake with good results.

I ended up watching the first half of Solo on the plane the other day and have renewed interest in doing a light edit of it. I’m no editor and just use iMovie. Is there a way to get a movie purchased in iTunes into iMovie?
