How to import video from DVD to Avid Media Composer

Media Composer, a professional software-based non-linear editing system is Avid's flagship product. It can support various commom videos for editing, but DVD disc movie can not be easily imported into Avid Media Composer in that it is difficult for Avid Media Composer to recognize and support VOB files.
