Encoding Video Materials for DVD

The DVD specification requires video movies to be in a DVD-compliant MPEG format.
There are a number of methods for converting video from its current format to MPEG.

DVD Studio Pro includes an integrated MPEG encoder, which can quickly encode your
QuickTime movies into DVD-compliant MPEG-2 files. See

Using the Integrated MPEG


for more information.

For analog sources, you need a hardware video capture card to digitize your video.
Depending on the card’s output format, you may then need a transcoder to convert it
to MPEG.
