iDVD

You have iDVD only if you bought a new Mac containing a SuperDrive DVD burner, or you bought Apple’s iLife software suite. iDVD lets you turn your digital photos or camcorder movies into DVDs that work on almost any DVD player, complete with menus, slideshow controls, and other navigation features. iDVD handles the technology; you control the style.

Sure, you can export your finished iMovie project back to a good old VHS cassette. But preserving your work on a DVD gives you a boatload of benefits, including better durability, dramatically better quality, no rewinding, duplication without quality loss, and cheaper shipping. (And besides, you can fit a lot more DVDs on a shelf than VHS tapes.)

Note

DVD players sold since 2002 are generally a safe bet for playing back homemade DVDs, but check the master player compatibility list at www.videohelp.com if you’re in doubt. Some players are fussy about which DVD-R brand discs they play, too.
