Introduction

Welcome to this iLife ‘05 Tutorial. This is the iDVD Tutorial.  iLife is a suite of applications developed by Apple to assist users in organizing and creating media.  iLife includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie HD and iDVD.  This tutorial assumes a completed iMovie project; please see David Wilson’s iMovie tutorial for information about how to create an iMovie project.

So what does iDVD really do?  It takes video from iMovie (or elsewhere) and encodes it into a format that can be burned onto a DVD.  This sometimes takes a really long time.

Goals:

After completing this tutorial you will be…

…able to use and be comfortable with the iDVD5 interface.

…able to use and customize menu themes

…aware of iDVD’s limitations

…able to import pictures and movies

…able to burn your project to a DVD
