Using Motion, LiveType, and Soundtrack Pro Projects
DVD Studio Pro allows you to import Motion, LiveType, and Soundtrack Pro projects
directly into your DVD project. This has several benefits:
• You do not have to render the projects before importing them. DVD Studio Pro allows
you to use them as if you had rendered them and exported a QuickTime movie from
them. You import the projects using the same methods you would use to import other
Note: Playing projects requires significantly more system resources than playing a
QuickTime movie. Depending on your system, projects may skip frames or show artifacts
when playing as part of a menu or track.
• You can open the Motion, LiveType, or Soundtrack Pro project from DVD Studio Pro. If
you make changes to the project in Motion, LiveType, or Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro
automatically uses the updated project.
To open a Motion or LiveType project in that application, from within DVD Studio Pro
Do one of the following:
Select the project in the Assets tab, then choose File > Asset > Open in Editor.
Control-click the project in the Assets tab, then choose Open in Editor from the shortcut
Double-click the project in the Assets tab.
Note: The Motion or LiveType application must be available on your computer.
