The Little iDVD Book Second Edition, by Bob LeVitu
Noted Mac columnist and best-selling author Bob (Dr. Mac ) LeVitus takes readers by the hand and guides them through the ins and outs of creating interactive DVDs using Apple's newly updated iDVD 3 software and Apple's tightly integrated iLife applications (iPhoto 2, iMovie 3, iTunes3, and iDVD 3 all for $49) in this reader-friendly Little book. Using jargon-free language and step-by-step instructions, Bob is at users sides every step of the way, showing them how to share movies, music, and pictures on DVD. This edition tells readers about the dozens of new menu themes they can use; how to access iTunes and iPhoto libraries directly from within iDVD 3; how the new iMovie chapter markers enable them to let viewers skip quickly from scene to scene; and how to create Scene Selection menus automatically. Readers also learn how to include other types of files, including AppleWorks, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel data on DVDs, and to create URL links that let any computer, Mac or PC, access a DVD-ROM folder.
