20.1. Why iDVD?

You already know from Chapter 19 that you can export your finished iMovie project back to a good old VHS cassette, one of the world's most sure-fire distribution methods. Anyone who doesn't have a VCR in this day and age probably wouldn't appreciate your cinematic genius anyway.

But preserving your work on a DVD gives you a boatload of benefits. For example, they're cheaper than VHS tapes. DVDs are also compact. They never need rewinding, either, and they're cheap to ship. They're more rigid and have zero moving parts. They're far more durable, too; wherease VHS tapes begin to deteriorate in 10 to 15 years, DVDs are built to last—up to a century or more, if you believe the manufacturers.
