(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Garrick Chow, and welcome to iDVD '09 Essential Training. This tutorial covers the latest version of Apple's DVD creation software that comes as part of the iLife '09 suite of applications. Over the next 30 movies, we'll cover everything you need to know about iDVD, from start to completion. We'll start by examining and familiarizing ourselves with the iDVD interface. Then we'll explore design choices, looking at iDVD's themes and menu customization tools. I'll show you how iDVD can help you to create additional content for your DVD like photo slideshows and DVD-ROM content.

You'll also see how to finalize everything, along with a few different ways to burn a DVD disk when we're done. I think you'll find that iDVD '09 makes it easy for you to take the movies, music, and photos you manage in the other iLife '09 applications, and bring them together into a DVD that can be shared with your friends and family, and played on any DVD player. Now, let's get started with iDVD '09 Essential Training.
