Exporting a QuickTime Movie for DVD Use

The process of exporting your movie as a standard QuickTime file is the same whether
you plan to use iDVD or DVD Studio Pro for creating a DVD.

To export a QuickTime movie for use in iDVD or DVD Studio Pro:


In Final Cut Pro, choose File > Export > QuickTime Movie.


Configure settings in the Save dialog.

In most cases, you will leave the Setting pop-up menu at Current Settings and include
both audio and video. If you have created any markers, choose DVD Studio Pro Markers
from the Markers pop-up menu. iDVD and DVD Studio Pro can use either self-contained
or reference movies, allowing you to decide whether to make the movie self-contained
based on other requirements (disk space and so on).


When you’re ready, click Save.
