Utilizing Chapter Markers Set with Final Cut Pro in iDVD

Here is a great response from one of GeniusDV's Instructors to a producer who was having problems getting iDVD to recognize chapter markers he had set in Final Cut Pro. This is great information.

Here are the steps to make the chapter markers work correctly in iDVD.

#1.... Make sure when you add your markers, that you are adding them to the
Final Cut Pro timeline (NOT inside the individual clips)

#2 Make sure you are pressing the M (Marker Button) TWICE. And make sure
you press the add chapter marker button. This will then add the appropriate
meta-data to each marker so iDVD will understand the chapter makers.

#3 Highlight your sequence in the Browser window, Go to File Export -
QuickTime Movie, and select the pull-down to add chapter markers.

#4 Drag your exported sequence into an iDVD template, and you will see the
scene selection option which will list the individual chapters based on your
markers.
