After a video project has been completed in Final Cut Pro and exported using Compressor, it still needs to be fashioned into a DVD. This process, called authoring, is handled in the Final Cut Pro suite by Apple’s DVD Studio Pro software. The iDVD is for sure able to burn all the projects created by Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express. But sometimes we just want to save the editing process and create DVD project in iDVD with the footages shot by Panasonic AVCHD Lite Cameras including Panasonic DMC-ZS3/DMC-FT1/DMC-TZ7, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2, Lumix DMC-FZ35/38, Lumix DMC-TZ10/ZS7, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75, Panasonic LX5, LEICA D-LUX 5, LEICA V-LUX 2.. To our disappointment, mostly the iDVD refuses to load these videos. Why should this happen? Well, the Panasoninc AVCHD Lite camcorders basically save footages in AVCHD Lite formats, which are not acceptable for iDVD. But we know that the iDVD works well with MPG and MP4 format, so all we need is to convert these troublesome AVCHD Lite Videos to iDVD compatible format with Brorsoft MAC AVCHD Lite Converter for further authoring and burning.
Now let’s focus on the conversion. Many video transcoding tools on market are able to convert AVCHD Lite videos, but Brorsoft AVCHD Lite Converter for MAC must be our optimal choice for its considerate profile options and adjustable video and audio parameters (resolution, bitrate, framerate, audio channels etc) and flexible editing facilities (trim, crop, watermark, audio replace, etc).
