The world of video is going digital.
You’re shooting with high-quality DV camcorders. You’re editing digitally with professional software packages such as Final Cut Pro. So why dub your finished projects onto low-quality analog videotape?
With DVD Studio Pro you can author your own DVD-Video discs — so your work is digital from start to finish. Best of all, because it’s from Apple, it’s designed for creative professionals, not DVD technicians. You can create DVDs which take advantage of every feature outlined in the DVD-Video standard.
Formerly the domain of DVD wizards, creative control over your DVD projects is now in your hands. Taking over where video editing applications such as Final Cut Pro leave off, DVD Studio Pro handles the MPEG encoding, menu creation, asset organization, linking, and output formatting that are required to produce DVD-Video discs.
You’ll feel right at home with the DVD Studio Pro interface. As you work, it’s easy to view your project’s structure in a variety of ways. DVD Studio Pro has real-time previewing built in, so you don’t need to wait for the project to be completed just to see how it looks and operates.
Whether you’re an independent filmmaker, video producer, trainer, event photographer or just someone who wants more control than iDVD provides, you’ll find that DVD Studio Pro has something for you. DVD Studio Pro lets you focus on the content of your DVDs, not on the details of DVD technology.
