Final Cut Studio
The question of how to burn AVI to DVD with the Final Cut Studio is really just a matter of how to take this file through the post-production process of these integrated programs. This begins by using Apple Compressor to convert the AVI to DVD format, and then take it into DVD Studio Pro.
Start out with the complete AVI movie file and open it in Apple Compressor. Once the project begins you start by going to Target in the upper task bar. Choose Destination, which will open up a browse prompt for your available storage locations. Choose a place within those available and this will be where the final converted video file will be exported.
Go down to Settings and go into the Apple folder, which will give you the different codec options. Choose DVD and you will have ten different folder options, each one solving different needs. What you want to do is decide whether you want the highest quality or the fastest available encoding, the closest amount of runtime to your project, and whether or not you want HD DVD encoding. Find the one that you want and you can drag and drop the entire folder, not just one of its contents, into the project window above. This will set both a video and audio export for your DVD authoring. Hit Submit and begin the compression process.
Once the files have finished you will want to start a new DVD Studio Pro project. Go into the Assets menu and select Import, which will then bring up a prompt to find your files. Select them and bring them into your Assets, which are the elements you can use on your DVD. From here create a new track and place both the audio and video files, matched, into it. Once you have created an integrated menu system for it and it passes the Simulation you can go ahead and burn the once AVI files to a DVD.
