Lesson 14. Burning DVDs of Your Videos a... > Building a DVD of Your Movies

Building a DVD of Your Movies

In this lesson, you'll follow Jennifer as she builds a DVD for her studio, including much of the material you and she have been building throughout this book. Having just added chapters to your movie in the previous exercise, you could start from inside iMovie and access iDVD (which is what the Create iDVD Project button let's you do in iMovie's iDVD window). You can also launch iDVD directly and pull in content, which is what you'll do in the next exercise. Either way, iDVD lets you drop one or more movies onto a DVD, as well as more than one kind of project (such as a slide show).

iDVD gives you direct access to iTunes, iPhoto, and iMovie through its connection to the Music, Photos, and Movies folders in your Mac's Home folder. By default, music and photos reside in these folders when you use them in iLife, but movie projects often get saved all over a computer. Your iMovie projects should reside in the Movies folder. iDVD is designed to look into an iMovie project file and extract what it needs in order to make the DVD, both the edited video and the chapter information you create. This is a remarkable feature and makes your job of DVD creation much simpler.
