DVD Authoring with DVD Studio Pro 2 is an introduction to Apple DVD Studio Pro and the workflow involved in the creation of DVDs. This is two books in one: if you are new to DVD authoring, the basic section will lead you through easy-to-follow tutorials. For more experienced users, the advanced section will cover sophisticated DVD features such as complex menu design, tracks, languages & subtitles, multiple audio and video streams, scripting, working with DVD-9, and more!
The book covers the entire process of DVD production, including project planning, media encoding, menu design, testing, burning, and preparing discs for replication. Chapters on third-party tools such as Compressor and A.Pack will help you maximize the software's capabilities. The DVD is packed with source files and valuable tools and examples, and the appendixes contain reference material for those wanting to dig deeper.
