i have finished creating my imovie and have followed the instructions to burn it onto a dvd. it says to click share, then click on iDVD. But i don't seem to have this option under the share tab!!??  I have a macbook pro. Can i get it from somewhere or can i burn it some other way.  this is my first time using imovie and so far so good, until getting to this point

MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2012)

    If there is no iDVD on Your Mac (and it's not on newer Macs as Apple discarded it) then You need a program that can do this.

    Your Mac can burn CDs and DVDs - BUT DVD as Data-DVDs not as Video-DVDs - they need a program to be encoded and STRUCTURED as such.


    • iDVD is part of the boxed version of iLife'11 and can only be bought outside Apple as on Amazon and e-bay


    • DVD Studio pro - Part of FinalCut Studio Pro bundle - this to has expired and can only be bought second handed. (High price and tough learning Curve - but best ever done.)


    • Roxio Toast™ - Not as elegant as iDVD - but has many other positive additions (I like it as 10-Pro incl BD-component) (now version 11)


    • Burn - only free alternative I know of on internet. Very simple - Just for doing a plain Video-DVD

    Burn http://www.digital-digest.com/software/Burn.html

    only You can buy from Apple is.


    • FinalCut Pro-X which also can burn to DVD but without any nice themes.


    • Free DVD Creator.app - free from Apple Store



    You can also buy Compressor from Apple for $50 US. It will also create DVD and BluRay but without the nice themes.

    On any of the options you mentioned, is it possible to 'string' multiple iMovies together so that they would play back to back (and in a loop).  I created 3 iMovies for my daughter's graduation and would like them to play repeatedly, back to back.
