iDVD in Your Life

You have all these great assets on your Mac. The power of iLife is the tight integration of all the individual packages. This is elegantly demonstrated with iDVD.

The focus of iDVD is to enable you to easily create professional-looking DVD videos. If you have played around with other DVD-creation tools, such as Roxio's, you know that it is not too difficult creating the DVD. It is essentially collecting your assets, such as video, audio, and images, and then storyboarding where you want them to appear on the DVD menu.

What separates iDVD from the rest of the crowd is Apple's focus on style. Apple gives you more than a dozen professional grade themes that you can use as a backdrop to your DVD menus. As you might imagine, you have great flexibility in how you want to title your movies.

A really cool integration feature with iPhoto and iTunes allows you to take a slide show and print it to your DVD.
