    I have a question about using iDVD in conjunction with final cut pro 2. I dont have DVD burning capability but I have a friend that has a superdrive and iDVD. I have a movie that I made in final cut that I would like to put on a DVD via iDVD. The question is (pretty basic) what should I save the file as to be able to use in iDVD. I would like the best quality that I can have. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Go to File-->Export-->Final Cut Pro Movie and when the export box pops up check the "make movie self contained" box at the bottom. This will make an extact copy of your movie which you can then take to your friend. Of course you'll probably need a FW HDD or something 'cause it's gonna be full DV res (I'm assuming your project is in DV).

    Thats what I figured, just wasnt sure if iDVD would flip out with that kind of file.
    It fits nicely on my ipod;)
