Product description

From the Back Cover

Updated for DVD Studio Pro 4.2.2, this best-selling, Apple certified guide uses striking real-world footage to build four complete DVDs and share a Blu-ray disc. It covers how to use  DVD Studio Pro on its own, as well as how to integrate it into  your workflow with Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, and Compressor 3.5. Each lesson takes you step-by-step through an aspect of DVD creation and finishing, with hands-on projects for you to complete as you go.

You'll learn to storyboard your DVD and plan its interactions, set chapter markers, build still and motion menus, and add overlays and subtitles. You’ll also work with multiple audio tracks and camera angles, create smart buttons and custom transitions, professionally encode audio and video files, and build useful scripts.

As the rest of the Apple Pro Training Series, this book is must have if you want to pass DVD studio Apple exam. It's nicely structured, detailed and at the end of each lesson you get questions and answers from the lesson you just learned. Would definitely recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Customizing your DVDs 7 Dec. 2010
By Eduard Gfeller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While many experts believe that DVDs are on the way out, they seem to lead a remarkably robust life. For sharing your videos with family and friends, to make a demo reel, to make power-point like presentations, or to have a marketing DVD for your customers at a trade show, DVDs are great. While iDVD and similar programs allow you to use templates to quickly generate decent looking DVDs, the hand-crafted DVD remains more time-consuming. Apple's DVD Studio Pro 4 which is part of the Final Cut Pro Suite allows you to author sophisticated DVDs with videos, slide-shows, even adding .pdf text files. Sitter, Ramseier, Carman and Harrington succeed admirably in teaching the necessary steps to create great DVDs. The lessons are well designed, the media are perfect for the purpose, and the lessons are easy to follow. I found that it usually took me longer to complete the lessons than the authors estimated, but then I'm a little slow. I also like to have a textbook to fall back on to look up things when I get stuck. The online help files are sometimes not as explicit. I found this book to be very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Help Book 2 Aug. 2009
By Brown Sugar26 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first time I opened DVD Studio I was lost and I knew I was in over my head. Then I purchased this book and I just want to tell you that I have hit the ground running designing my own menus and buttons in less than two hours and four chapters of this book. Buy this book to unlock the secrets of DVD Studio that are unknown on the surface you will be happy that you did.....

The excercises work so well I find myself laughing out loud with delight.The challenge is always finding the right drop down menu so I especially appreciate the screen shots with cursor arrows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read ...BUT 11 April 2007
By H. G. Hourigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good illustrations but not that easy for a DVD STudio Pro 'Dummy'. I found that I had to go to the Apple DVD Studio Pro manual from the net to work out what to do. Then, after I had a basic understanding, and a few hours of fiddling on the computer,this book came to life for me and was very useful. Particularly the project workshops.

Excellent in many ways. The DVD Studio Pro 4 (3rd Edition) was very informative & the shipping was impressive. The shipping & handling costs is expensive but the book is good value.
