Create a DVD - Final Cut Pro X

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The previous versions of Final Cut Pro did not allow users to export their edited movies directly to a DVD. These older versions required users to export a video of their edited movie, and then burn that video to a DVD using a program such as iDVD or DVD Studio Pro. But now, with Final Cut Pro X, you can export your movie directly to a DVD in a very basic way. To begin, navigate to the top menu bar and click Share -- DVD. This will bring up the Create DVD dialog box with a few options to choose from. You can choose the Output device, which could be a DVD drive or a hard drive, a Single-layer or a Dual-layer burn, the Disk template, which could either be a black background or a white background, and the Title.? You can also choose what you want to happen when the disc loads.? Under the Advanced tab, you can set up Background Rendering or Send your video to Compressor, which allows you to take your footage and turn it into a much smaller sized file without losing much video quality. Finally, Summary tells you everything you need to know about your video, such as the File Type, Estimated size and Width and Height. You'll also see the video's Pixel aspect ratio and Frame rate as well. When you're ready, click Burn. Final Cut Pro X will begin rendering the video to prepare it for burning to a DVD.
