Sams Teach Yourself iMovie and iDVD in 24 Hours
by Todd Kelsey
People are starting to make their own digital movies like never before, and what better way to deliver them than on DVD. The sales of digital camcorders have been explosive, and DVD is established firmly as a consumer medium, with some retailers no longer carrying VHS tapes. But typical video editing or DVD authoring can involve some complex and intimidating topics, such as MPEG-2 encoding, frame rates, and file size considerations.
Enter Apple, with the powerful yet friendly iMovie program, which ships with every Mac. Apple makes the process of making movies fun, and after establishing a reputation with iMovie, Apple has raised the bar with iDVD, bringing the power of DVD to the home.
Sams Teach Yourself iMovie and iDVD in 24 Hours teaches readers new to digital movies and DVD everything they need to know to begin making their own digital productions. It provides them a solid foundation in the concepts of digital video and DVD, giving them a sense of satisfaction to understand the process. And it equips them with the skills they need, without confusing them or hitting them over the head with complexity.
