    Dead as a door nail. Same with Color and Sound Track Pro. And Cinema Tools but I doubt very many people even know about that app any more.

    The only 2 programs I use out of Final Cut Studio is Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro. What would be a good alternative to using DVD Studio Pro if it's no longer offered? I was really looking forward to seeing a 64bit version of it. This whole Final Cut Pro X update has been one big disappointment to many years of anticipation for it.

    I have been debating on going that route. I guess now's the time to face facts and move over to Encore. DVD Studio Pro is a great program it just needed a 64 bit version so you could speed up the process.

    Isn't there some other alternative? I used Encore in 2007, after I was already accustomed to DVD SP, and I was really flabbergasted by this idiotic application. Maybe it has changed. Or maybe I have changed.

    Anyway, DVD SP still works for SD DVDs, no need for an upgrade I suppose. At least for my simple DVD authoring needs.

    Not much of a choice at this point I'm sorry to say.

    Thanks.

    iDVD, here I come. At least it is not as idiotic as Encore, but still crap.

    There's nothing to really "speed up" in DVD Studio Pro, considering that it's primarily an SD-DVD authoring application. The only thing you could really speed up in DVDSP is encoding and frankly, you have a lot more control over .m2v encoding in Compressor.

    One thing I wish Encore would actually do is output BD-CMF files for mass Blu-ray replication. Right now, you either have to use BluStreak or author in expensive Windows apps.

    DVD Studio Pro template conversion from PAL to NTSC

    Hi guys, I'm a little late in getting involved here, but I must ask this question, if any of you could please help me. Inside of DVDSP 4, I created a great template with menus and custom buttons etc, in a PAL sequence. Well, now I wish to use that template for an NTSC sequence. Is there any way of converting it?? Otherwise, I have to spend all day re-creating.

    Thank you.

    DVD Studio Pro Content cannot be seen

    I have just installed (on a new computer) DVD Studio Pro 4, ended up with the Content data installed in ‘/Library/Application Support’, which I am not sure is correct, as the program was not listing any preset styles etc. I copied the content to ‘~/Library/Application Support’ and it still can’t be seen by the program. Any ideas on this?
