4Videosoft DVD Ripper for Mac

In addition to the indispensable functions for ripping DVD files to general videos on a Mac, this application also supports with basic video editing capabilities to help users make output files fit more to specific uses.

It can't handle the process from a DVD movie to 3D video. It lacks of the support to switch target file and clip source file in the Edit window.

The Verdict
This Mac DVD Ripper is good for making general video files rather than re-coding DVD videos to the files with 3D effects. If there is no need to clip source files, then this Mac utility would be enough to do basic edit on the videos to be outputted.
