How to burn QuickTime Movie to DVD?

While QuickTime movies could not be played directly on DVD player, it is a good idea to convert QuickTime movies to DVD and burn them to a DVD disc. You will need a DVD burner program to have the job done. Below is a step-by-step guide. Try, and you will get it!

Step 1: Download Video to DVD Burner
Follow the installation wizard. What you download is a free trial version and you may uninstall it anytime you want.
During the installation process, you can insert DVD +R (DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW) into DVD-ROM.
Note: The DVD-ROM should have writing and recording functions.

Step 2: Add QuickTime movies
Click "Load Video" or select "Load Video" under the "File" drop-down menu to load QuickTime movies from your hard drive. Multiple video files could be added at a time. After the video files have been added, they will appear in the main interface. Display the loaded QuickTime movie by double click to choose the video files which you want to convert.

Step 3: Organize a slideshow
If you have multiple video clips and want to burn them to a disc, organizing a video slideshow with customizable menu, transition effects and background music is a good choice for you. Just drag & drop loaded video files from the main interface to the storyboard below to start organizing a slideshow.
Order: You can sort the order of the video files in the storyboard by dragging and dropping.

Edit: Select a loaded video in the storyboard, click "edit selected video file", you may see a window with a box below for settings. There are five tabs here for you to crop the size, to trim the length, to adjust the video effect, to design your watermark and to plug-in subtitle.

Transition: Click "Transition" and you will see all the available transition effects in the transition pane. A simple click could help you to display the transition effect in the right window. Just drag and drop the transition effect you want to apply to the middle of two video files in the slideshow storyboard.

Step 4: Customize DVD menu
Click "Menu" to customize your DVD menu. There are different styles of built-in templates, frames and buttons for your choice. To apply a template, frame or button, you can just double click it.
You can even add text, background music and background image to customize the menu.

Step 5: Preview and start burning
Click preview button to preview your slideshow to check is everything goes right. If not, you can go back to any of the previous steps to make changes to your project.
At last, click "Start" to make the last settings like TV standard and Aspect ratio. Then start burning your QuickTime movies to DVD disc, or you may also burn it to ISO images files or DVD folder (with VOB files in it) saved on your hard drive.
