Final Cut Pro 6 - Using iDVD

background image

Using iDVD

iDVD only imports standard QuickTime movies as video sources. This means that if you
intend to use iDVD as your DVD authoring application, you only need to export a
QuickTime movie from Final Cut Pro. iDVD automatically encodes the video and audio
sources to be DVD-compliant. The video is encoded as MPEG-2 video at a quality
controlled by a preference setting and the video length. The audio is encoded as an
uncompressed AIFF file.

For more information, see “

Exporting a QuickTime Movie for DVD Use

” on page 277.

See the iDVD documentation for information on importing the movie and adding it to
your DVD.
