Exporting a QuickTime Movie for DVD Use

The process of exporting your movie as a standard QuickTime file is the same whether you plan to use iDVD or DVD Studio Pro for creating a DVD.

To export a QuickTime movie for use in iDVD or DVD Studio Pro
  1. In Final Cut Pro, choose File > Export > QuickTime Movie.

  2. Configure settings in the Save dialog.

    In most cases, you will leave the Setting pop-up menu at Current Settings and include both audio and video. If you have created any markers, choose DVD Studio Pro Markers from the Markers pop-up menu. iDVD and DVD Studio Pro can use either self-contained or reference movies, allowing you to decide whether to make the movie self-contained based on other requirements (disk space and so on).

  3. When you’re ready, click Save.
