How to create dvd on mac

Postby ugzruben » 10 Jan 2011 06:36

I have a cx-150 (awesome btw, I love it). And I used a PC with PMB that made awesome DVD's (with a little title) on it.

I switched over to a mac and don't understand how to create a simple DVD with greate quality like I did with the PC using PMB. I know there is no PMB for the MAC so can anyone give me step by step instructions on how to create the best possible DVD?

With my mac, I import it with iMove (highest quality), then I just add all clips with iMove and SHARE with iDVD but the quality is no where near what I was getting with the PC using the PMB software.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

The big brother to iDVD in the Mac World is DVD Studio Pro. You can find it on Apple's website.
Or, pop into a Mac store and get a demo from one of the "creatives".

Good luck,

Have you checked the quality setting in iDVD is set to 'Professional Quality'?
You can find it under the menu iDVD > preferences > projects and select 'Professional Quality' under the encoding section... If you haven't already checked!?
