Using DVD Studio Pro

DVD Studio Pro can import either standard QuickTime movies or DVD-compliant
sources. When you import standard QuickTime movies, they are automatically encoded
to be DVD-compliant. DVD Studio Pro has preferences that allow you to adjust the
quality at which your video is encoded, giving you more control of your final DVD
quality than iDVD provides. The audio is encoded as uncompressed PCM data. For
information on exporting a QuickTime movie, see the next section, “

Exporting a

QuickTime Movie for DVD Use


For the most control over your final video and audio quality, you can use applications
such as Compressor to encode your video and audio into DVD-compliant sources.
Compressor allows you to create special DVD-compliant formats such as MPEG-1 and
Dolby Digital AC-3 audio.

See the DVD Studio Pro documentation for details on supported video and audio
formats and information on importing your movies.
