Have the Assets Been Edited Yet?

DVD Studio Pro is not an editor. You can use it to link assets together on a timeline, as
with an editor, and even trim an asset’s start and end, but you cannot add effects, such
as dissolves and text credits, or perform any audio mixing. Your assets need to be already
edited using an application such as Final Cut Pro. If you are editing the assets on your
authoring computer, you need to capture them in a format required by your editing
software. Once edited, the assets can be imported into DVD Studio Pro (if they are in a
QuickTime-supported format) or encoded into DVD-compliant MPEG and audio formats,
using either Compressor or third-party applications.
