Steve,

Good decision to choose the Apple road for this type of work. It saves you
a lot of time and hassles with no viruses good security as a bonus. iDVD
and iMovie are actually good enough and if you want to get real
professional you should do it all with Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro the
software I use for video editing. No problem to generate any format you
want (except .wav which is MS property and not meant for anybody out of
MS-scape).

Steve, will you be in SLC? If yes I look forward to see you there again.
