There is a bug in iDVD '08 that when burning a large project to disc,
the audio slowly goes out on sync.

For that reason I figured that I would try burning the project with
DVD Studio Pro instead.

I'm totally new to the PRO software so I could use some assistance
with these questions....

1. I was able to import my iMovie '06 project to Final Cut with
no problem. However, how do I EXPORT the project to DVD Studio Pro?
Under EXPORT there is no command to do such a thing.

2. Can I create menus and slideshow in DVD Studio Pro?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Rise from the grave old thread!


I'm an iMovie / Premiere user but been waiting for the new FCP.  Looks like it's going to be pretty badass!

"Automatic color matching between two clips if you wish ... Wowowow" Sounds great so far. No price or launch date yet.

That's a little much Sam. As a matter of fact, there is a chance that this release might drive some pros to Avid. While I am excited to find out more about it, some of the similarities to iMovie give me pause. I hope that the concerns are unfounded and that it blows my mind. So I guess there is no more FInal Cut Studio?

The price point is pretty incredible.  I guess they are going to be making it up in volume Posted Image.  David.  I used Premiere a long time ago and Pinnacle more recently, so I'm not familiar with iMovie.  What issues do (or others) have with this release?

I think Apple put a real kick into Premiere.   I think Premiere has been a mediocre product for some time, and this pretty well affirms Apple as supplanting it.


I don't think this does much to Avid.     I have several clients who use Avid and FCP to a great extent - one produces a nationally syndicated show, the other uses both for a more ... direct purpose (golf related).

Anyway, I think this announcement was solid.   I think this last year has been a surprising year for Adobe, which had Premiere really "on the ropes" and managed to pick up some big production wins (ie, BBC, CATV, Showtime) which it had been lacking for some time.  Avid is still by far the industry standard.   FCP had been very "long in the tooth", with nearly a decade since it's last truly major update.


The way in which FCP changes are significant and should be embraced by almost every casual editor or midline editor.   I think there is going to be a real curve on the path for pro editors, who will look at major changes or elimination to Color and Motion with a more simplified setup as a "dumbing down" of the product.   For 90% of the consumers that is a non-issue.    For say, 10%, it is.  Just one of those things.   I think it's interesting that they talk about their render and timeline corrections in real time when that's a feature they had to have - it's one Avid has had for over 18 months now.  Even Adobe's Warp Stabilizer is a very effective product, though I believe Apple trumpcards that (which is why I said, I think Adobe feels most of the heat)


I don't think as it sits this "steals" much from Avid in the way of support or enlisted editors.   There are still too many workflow elements that for a major work are easier to do and develop in Avid, and Avid by design has a few elements you just can't get to from FCP.  

But I do think this puts a real hitch in the wagon for Premiere.   Like I said, Premiere had been a struggling product that spent the last year getting more design wins then it has seen in a while - a big part of that due to the age of FCP.   But a major update to FCP stops the forward momentum of that product for usage.

I think it will be interesting :)  The one "feature" that is going to be boon or bane is the realtime transcoding.    I'm interested to start seeing spec output results.

They haven't exactly described what happens to the rest of the studio tools so it's too early to speculate on what this means for Motion and Color.  Will try to put up the thoughts I see from folks who were there (Nino Leitner and Philip Bloom etc).  Hopefully Apple posts the video today.


"Stay Tuned" on info on the rest of the suite (but it sounds like they ALL ship in June!):

You may be right on my saying this isn't a deathknell for Avid yet.  But it does put a flag on the ground and re-establish that Apple has NO PLANs to squander their commitment to pro users, and they aren't afraid to compete on price at the same time.  Win the "pro-sumers" and independant film makers over and it's going to be harder and harder for Avid to show why they are worth a multiple order of magnitude price differential.
