How do I use Photo to Movie with iDVD?

To use Photo to Movie with iDVD, you will create your movie in Photo to Movie. Then you will click on the Make Movie button or choose File > Make Movie... Once the Make Movie dialog opens, choose the iDVD icon at the top of the window. Next, for best compatibility, manually launch iDVD from the Finder (see below). Then return to the Make Movie dialog in Photo to Movie and choose whether to add the movie to a new iDVD project or the existing one. Next choose a project name and a place to save the movie file. It is recommended to save both within your Movies folder. Then click the Make Movie button. Photo to Movie will render the movie and then send it directly to iDVD.

Some recent versions of iDVD (iLife '06) take too much time to launch and Photo to Movie versions prior to Photo to Movie 4.0.3 may not correctly add the movie to the iDVD document. For this reason, you should launch iDVD manually yourself if you're using Photo to Movie 4.0.2 or earlier. Photo to Movie 4.0.3 or later fixes this problem.
