What is iMovie?

iMovie is one of those great software apps developed by Apple Inc. It is a video/photo editing software application designed for macOS, iOS, and iPadOS devices.

This software is designed for easy conversion of photos and video clips into fascinating movies or trailers and can be shared to friends and anyone who is interested in it.

So as stated above, this software allows you to produce magnificent videos which you can view on your mac computer or better still reproduce it in another storage optical discs like your DVD. That is, if you are someone that prefers having your movies or videos in DVD.

So, in this tutorial, we will be looking at the two possible ways you can have your iMovie movies burned to DVD. These two methods have been efficient and will always be.

Before then, here are the things you will need to have to do this job without any stress:

  1. Your computer with either Windows or Mac Operating System
  2. The movie you want to burn
  3. Good movie converter/burner (Wondershare Uniconverter)
  4. Blank DVD

The two methods that will be used will cater for users of the iOS regardless of the device used by the user.

First, note that the second method is mainly for old iOS users, so it is not obtainable now with the latest iOS devices or computers.

Below are the two methods you can use to convert your iMovies to DVD without stress.

First Method:

For this tutorial, we will be using Wondershare Uniconverter as sample burner software to show you the very steps to take to burn iMovie to your DVD.

Steps to Burn iMovie to your DVD

  1. Export your iMovie work to your Mac computer

Upon completion of whatever iMovie video project, export the videos to your mac computer.

Open the project library and select File and click on Export to save the movie. For this, the best you can choose is the MOV file format.

The next you choose is the location, followed by file name, file size, and resolution, and then click on Export to move the movie to your Mac computer.

  1. Add iMovie to your Wondershare Uniconverter

At this stage, it is assumed that you have already downloaded and installed Wondershare Uniconverter on your system.

On the user interface on the Wondershare Uniconverter, click on the Add Files icon to add your favorite videos or preferably you can still drag the iMovie you exported earlier.

  1. Set the parameters for the conversion

This is important as it will determine the outcome of the conversion.

One of the parameters you have to set is the location or destination where you want the new video to be located after burning. This should be the DVD you want to burn the iMovie to.

You can set some of the optional parameters using the Edit icon such as title, background music, and image.

The most important thing you cannot ignore is the setting of Ratio, TV Standard, Menu Type, etc.

  1. Start the burning process

Before you start the burning process, ensure that you already have your blank DVD or DVD-RW slotted into your computer’s DVD drive.

Secondly, ensure that you have formatted the DVD to make it usable for the job you are about to start.

After that, fill in the blank for DVD label, click the inverted triangle icon to choose your preferred DVD type and hit the Burn button located at the bottom of the window to start the burning process.

This process is sure to give you the best result you can think of.

Second Method:

This second method is achievable with the use of iDVD. Here, you will need to export the video from iMovie to iDVD before you do the burning. This method is for older versions of mac operating system.

  1. Open the desired movie you want to burn and click on the share menu to reveal the options you have. Right there you will see iDVD, select it and wait for it to process.
  2. The above process will automatically create a new project in iDVD using the default theme. This does not in any way stop you from changing the theme to what you want. You can also change the title and other parameters if you so wish.
  3. Now you can click the burn button to start the burning process. This shouldn’t take a lot of time to complete without any problem whatever.
