Usually, we would like to purchase or rent the latest and interesting movies from iTunes Store. At times, we will feel amazing about some chapters with shocking images and special shot ways. If you like to make your own videos, you may want to add these fantastic video clips to your own video creation. For Mac users, iMovie must be the first choice for you to make or edit video. However, if you try to import the movie files from iTunes library to iMovie, they will appear to be grey out and won't allow you to select from, due to the strict DRM protection.

We all know that the movies and TV shows which purchased or rented from iTunes, are encrypted with Apple Fairplay DRM protection. This technology is aimed to prevent users from transferring and sharing to other platforms. Therefore, to edit protected iTunes video clips on iMovie, you have to bypass the DRM protection and convert iTunes movie to iMovie supported format such as MOV and MP4.
