    You mean like those for for DVDs? You would need a DVD authoring program or something like toast.

    If not never mind....

    iDVD, but I think is no longer shipped with macs, you might need to find an old version. And since apple doesn't seem to host it anymore, there is no way to know what you are getting and if it's been tampered with.

    So, save yourself some trouble and get toast

    Nothing built in to the mac for DVD. Apple used to sell iDVD and DVDSP. There are currently a couple software options, but toast seems to be most popular. I have DVDSP running on an older machine. It it has many more authoring features than iDVD or toast.

    You can also make simple DVDs directly from FCP and perhaps iMovie (share as DVD).

    I just checked my 2009 iMac, and for what it's worth, the latest version of iDVD is 7.1.2. It came out in 2011. If you can find a Mac with iDVD already on it, you can download the latest update here:

    I really like Toast, too. For all that can't spend money, a good alternative is the free and open source app Burn. Three different versions to choose from on the sourceforge site. From me thumbs up for the G3 version.

    In FCP 10.3.2, share to DVD, and in settings select hard drive; this will create a disc image with audio and video_ts folders in it. Also other options for chapters and menu that I have not fully explored, but did do a quick test and works just fine. You can easily create a DVD from the disc image. I still have copies of DVDSP that I use for making full function DVDs.

    iDVD no longer works.
    The latest MacOS broke it - it crashes in the export stage.
    Good job i have an older mac to burn the disc images on.
    FCPX is great, but iDVD was so easy to use.

    I keep several hard drives with older OSs on them, and use a dock when I need to boot from one of them to use whatever software I want that does not function with newer OS. Same thing as keeping an older Mac around, but smaller footprint.
