DVD Studio Pro: June 2008 Archives

Yes, it's possible to create chapters (similar to regular chapters on a DVD) to videos in your iphone.  The trick is to save a standard QuickTime movie with embedded Chapter markers.  If you're not sure how to embed chapter markers into a sequence, click on the link. 

Do not use the standard iPhone export setting within QuickTime Conversion because it will not allow you to save the embedded chapter markers.

Take the QuickTime movie you've exported into Apple Compressor.  Don't worry, Apple Compressor will maintain the meta-data for the chapter markers. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Within Apple Compressor use the H.264 Preset for iPod and iPhone video.  That's it!  You'll now have embedded chapter points within your video clip on the iPhone.

iDVD allows you to create chapters, but is limited to where you can place the actual chapter points.  Did you know that you can use Final Cut Pro to create specific chapter points that will automatically turn into iDVD chapters.

To do this, all you need to do is add markers directly within a Final Cut Pro sequence.  Press the 'M' key to add a marker point at the place you'd like to have a DVD chapter.  Make sure the marker is placed within the actual Final Cut Pro sequence, and NOT within the actual clip. You don't need to add a marker at the very beginning.

Next, all you need to do is export your sequence as a QuickTime movie.  Navigate to the File menu and select 'Export -> QuickTime Movie'  The save dialog box will appear. Change the 'markers' menu to include chapter markers.
