DVD Preview

DVD Preview

DVD’s Preview DVD Playback feature mimics what you’ll see on your TV screen.


iDVD has a couple of preview features built right in, so there’s no need to burn a disc until you’re sure you’ve got everything just right. To see how the DVD will look, click the Motion button for a preview—this will show you how the menus animate. But for the full, finished DVD experience, go for the Preview DVD Playback feature by clicking the Play button. Then you’ll get to see the full picture, and navigate around with an onscreen remote control.

I'd prefer using aimersoft mac dvd ripper to copy DVD on Mac OS.



Yes, the preview is quite convenient, but since every thing's now dependent on on Core Image, this feature sucks on a modest G4 system.

Especially when iDVD take 18+ hrs. to save a project to a image... don't ask why, I have no clue. Just set it and forget it, I tell myself.

Of course, you should see how much time it takes me to rip a movie for my iPod touch. Handbrake usually works at about two or three FPS.

By the way, did I mention I was doing all of this [not at the same time] on a iBook G4 [yeah, I know, I need to find a cheap G5 or something].
