iDVD is often considered the last step of Apple's iLife suite, bringing together all the other iLife applications' results onto a removable medium. It is comparable to its Microsoft Windows alternative Windows DVD Maker. iDVD has 100 different Apple-designed animated themes, many with different submenus that match the main theme for additional content such as chapters or other extras in either widescreen 16:9 or standard 4:3 formats.
The iDVD program integrates with the rest of the iLife suite. iMovie projects and iPhoto slideshows can be exported directly to iDVD. The application also has a 'Media' area that provides access to the user's iTunes library, iPhoto library and Movies folder at any time, and there is a map view, which shows the current project's menu system in a graphical form. Another feature is the ability to hide or show an approximation of the 'TV safe area'. iDVD also includes a 'OneStep DVD' function, which will automatically rewind the currently connected DV camcorder and burn a DVD of the video footage that is on the tape.
iDVD is no longer included in the iLife bundel that comes with Mac OS 10.7 Lion or that comes with OS 10.8 Mountain Lion though Macs are with a Superdrive which continues to be able to burn video DVDs. Anyway, you can get it back from boxed copy of iLife '11 until iLife '13. However, without iDVD on your Mac machine, you can turn to other DVD burners for help. There are many options in the market.
iOrgsoft DVD Maker for Mac is an amazing iDVD alternative for burning videos to DVDs. It offers an easy way for you to backup your favorite videos or movies to DVD disc. It is capable of converting and burning videos from internet or shot by your mobile phones/camcorders to DVD discs or to ISO files.
