Mac iMovie/iDVD for concert DVDs?

Is it generally frowned upon to use imovie/idvd to create/synch concert DVDs? I know they dont have as many features, but is there any loss of quality compared to using more advanced programs like final cut, or Vegas on a PC?

Loss of quality really isnt an issue. You are going to have a hell of a time trying to synch though using iMovie. It is really a shitty program. You are much better off using Final Cut Express/HD

Re: Mac iMovie/iDVD for concert DVDs?

as toto said, its not so much that you'd "lose quality", but that you don't have control over the amount/type of compression being used...i say go for it...however, you might find that someone with a "higher end" set up would be willing to do it for ya, or look into getting Final Cut Express...its reasonably priced and has alot of nice features for a consumer-level editing prog

Re: Mac iMovie/iDVD for concert DVDs?

Thanks for the input guys, I also have a PC with Vegas 6, which im learning to use now. I think I'll stick with that. Its just that I know imovie really well, and was wondering if that would work just as well... I guess its time to move up to the next level of video editing software...

all of the DVDs here are already "put together"...all you need to do is burn em

do you use Toast to burn with?
if so, just select Video tab, "DVD-Video from Video_TS folder", drag the Video_TS folder that you d/l'ed to the window and burn.

some DVD players will also play "data discs" & Drag-to-Disc burned dvds
