Q: After burning a DVD of a Final Cut Pro project, the video on the screen appeared off center, slightly to the right. What is causing this movement, and how can it be fixed?
A: Creating a DVD doesn't move a video off center. There are no positioning controls in DVD SP.
This means that the video was probably moved off center in Final Cut Pro. Check your Motion tab settings and make sure the Center values are set to 0, 0.
