Good recommendation.

I can only speak to windows, but some technical issues are:
selecting sections of ripped DVD [using dvd-decrypter].... either with 
an editor, or preferably in DVD authoring software.
and "NTSC" vs. "PAL"... the mpeg files have different sizes and frame 
rates, and usually have to be homogenized.

If one of the apple apps lets you do both inside the software, that is 

only speaking of win.... has a very  inexpensive and 
quite powerful dvd authoring tool [DVD-Lab, or pro, $99 or $200],
does the first,
and for a few dollars [30?] you can add on software [dvd source 
creator... haven't used it but should be solid] that will integrate with 
the editor,
and do the NTSC/PAL homogenization.
There is a learning curve, but the manual is good.
Free trials of course.

best of luck,
