iDVD is a DVD creation software application made by Apple Inc. for Mac OS X. iDVD allows the user to add QuickTime Movies, MP3 music, and digital Photos to a DVD that can then be played on a commercial DVD player. It is often considered the last step of Apple's iLife suite, bringing together all the other iLife applications' results onto a removable medium. This instruction is from Wikipedia. And from these words, we can get that iDVD could help one to burn the videos to a DVD. As now almost the videos are stored in Digital method, to store the information in solid will make the videos be saved for much longer time and safer.
Where are your videos from? In nowadays, most videos are from Cameras or Camcorders. Maybe there are still videos from phones or other devices, but cameras and camcorders are the best choice when capturing. With the Memory Card, much information could be stored. But there is only one problem that different camcorders record videos in different formats. For example: most HD camcorders now could capture AVCHD files in MTS or M2TS format, some camcorders could capture MOV and Mp4 files while some JVC camcorders capture TOD and MOD videos. How to handle these videos in various formats?
Not all the formats could be accepted by iDVD. Actually, MOV is the best choice for iDVD burning. That's totally because iDVD could read MOV directly without any problems or rendering. Of course there is another way to solve this format problem: iMovie. This video editor software mainly helps to edit the videos, and after the editing, iMovie could import the new videos into iDVD directly. So, we just need to make the videos compatible with iMovie. But how?
Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac is what you need. Compare with many other such video conversion tools, you will find this software is much powerful. Conversion could be easily achieved, but to keep the high quality will be much more difficult. Most such tools will supply new videos with much quality loss, but never will Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac. It could easily help to transcode the videos to any other format you want, of course including formats for iDVD (MOV) and iMovie (AIC).
The two pictures show you how this software works. And Picture 1 means that one can convert camera or camcorder videos to iDVD directly. There is not a specialized select for "iDVD", my suggestion is that HD videos in either Mp4 or MOV format can be read by iDVD. Picture 2 stands for another way to import files into iDVD. You can first edit the files in iMovie. That will bring you more comfortable videos. After then, iMovie supports exporting new videos into iMovie directly.
