Max discusses not only the essentials of how to use iMovie 6 and iDVD 6, but also how to conceptualize a project with storyboards. He demonstrates how to import video and audio from multiple sources, how to choose effective transitions and effects, how to edit for best flow, and how to burn discs or save for Web broadcast. The iDVD 6 tutorials included in this training show users how to choose a suitable theme, how to select photos and videos, and how to create professional DVD menus.
