Hi Res Video on a DVD

I know very little about video production and I'm in a place where I need to sound intelligent about the retracting of a video clip from a DVD.

First off, I've tried that before and I'm under impression that if it's a commercially manufactured DVD, you can't grab clips from the movie itself.

Secondly, the movie clip that you could grab from the DVD isn't going to be hi res.

Is what I'm saying here true?

It isn't considered legal in many countries (the US included) to copy commercial movies, so most software will respect that and not allow you to copy all or part of a commercial DVD.  We aren't allowed to discuss anything on this site that will bypass such protection.

You could capture images with an analog recording device (vcr, tuner card) and it would not be as good as the original.

So, yes, what you're saying is essentially true.
