Apple posts Playlists to DVD for creating music DVDs

Playlists to DVD

Apple has posted , a free AppleScript studio application that automatically creates an interactive music DVD with navigation controls from your iTunes playlists. It creates a QuickTime movie containing the audio tracks and album art from a chosen iTunes playlist and automatically creaties a DVD (using iDVD) for DVD playback of the music using on-screen navigation controls. Several different navigation interfaces are available, including an iTunes-like single-window interface. It requires Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, QuickTime Pro, iTunes 4, and iDVD 4. Users can also download the editable Xcode project files.

The AppleScript will also work with iDVD to generate an interactive QuickTime movie file that can be burned onto CD or DVD (without DVD navigation).

    AppleScript Error

    Has anyone gotten this to work?

    I get:

    "AppleScript Error
    Quicktime Player got an error: movie 1 doesn't understand the select none message. (-1708)"

    I looked through the AppleScripts and ran some of the related sections manually with script editor and it should be possible to do "select none" on a movie as the script does.

    What are you asking me for? I don't have a Mac. At least not yet.

    You may have missed it that requires iDVD 4, as in the version that is to be released on the 16th, so I don't think anyone will be using it quite yet.

    It works without iDVD4

    You can create an interactive Quictime Movie with it right now, whether you have iDVD or not. I tried one and it works pretty well. Just don't expect to do anything while it's running. It basically takes over your computer.

    Why only 90 minutes?

    Does this mean that while the song plays, whats on screen is a movie? That seems very wasteful. Couldn't the audio be in the background of a still menu? You would be able to get 8 hours of aiff or god knows how much (90 hrs?) AAC audio if the dic space were not wasted by the onscreen image being a movie - right?

    iDVD limitation

    You are probably limited in burn length by iDVD-- they'd want you to pony up dough if you are making full length movies, etc.
