play back your homemade Video CDs until you try it. Create a Video CD as described here, using the brand of blank discs that you intend to use, and then take the result to an electronics store to try it on the different DVD player models you're considering buying. (And if you already own a DVD player, insert your homemade CD and hope for the best.) Making Video CDs with Toast The easiest way to make a Video CD is to use Toast Titanium (, the popular disc-burning software. (It's about $70 online.) When your iMovie project is ready to go, save it and quit iMovie. Figure 12-10 provides all the instructions you need except for one tiny detail: fnding the reference movie you're supposed to drag into the Toast window. · If you've been editing a movie from an older version of iMovie (and it's therefore in a project folder as described on page 112), open that folder. The reference movie is the fle whose name ends with .mov. · If you've been editing a movie that began life in iMovie HD (or was "Save Project As"'ed out of iMovie HD), it's represented by a single icon on your hard drive. Control-click it. From the shortcut menu, choose Show Package Contents. Open the SharedÆiDVD folder. Once again, the reference movie is the fle whose name ends with .mov (see Figure 12-10). (For more on iMovie fles vs. iMovie folders, see page 112.) Then proceed as shown in Figure 12-10. Figure 12-11: Drag your QuickTime mov- ies--for example, the reference .mov document in each iMovie project folder--into the iVCD list. Click Convert, Image, and Burn, as each stage fnishes. iVCD does the rest. The program costs $30, but it's free for tryout purposes. (Until you pay, a watermark appears on your fnished movies when the disc plays back.) Burning QuickTime Movie CDs chapter12:fromimovietoquicktime 313
