This version of Mastering iDVD covers iDVD '06

iDVD has grown through the last few years to become the predominant authoring tool for people looking to quickly create engaging, interactive DVDs. Once you understand how iDVD works, you can create discs that would be at home on the shelves of Blockbuster as they are on the bookcase beside Grandma's TV.

This program takes you through every aspect of using iDVD, which is a startlingly capable DVD-Authoring tool! Wether you're capturing video directly from your camera into iDVD, or starting with pre-edited digital video streams, you'll learn valuable tips, tricks, and techniques to make your video look as good as possible, DVD after DVD.

Of course, a DVD without interactivity is not much more than a high quality VHS tape. A big part of any DVD is the interactivity you build into it. Francesco covers this area in detail, demonstrating how to use Templates to quickly create interactivity, and also how to create your own custome menus using images or videos created in other multimedia applications.
