Studio Pro provides an excellent DVD quality. There are a few steps to follow in order to add DVD-Rom content to a DVD using Studio Pro. The step-by-step guide to take is listed below.

Tools and Materials Needed

  • Blank DVD
  • DVD Studio Pro

Step 1: Create a Folder

Create a folder and label it DVD-Rom. Within the DVD-Rom folder, create another folder and label it Writing or Content. This is the basic set up for the DVD-Rom content for your actual DVD video.   

Step 2: Find Project that Will Go on DVD

Click on the Disc area, not the Track or Menu area. Under the General tab, you will want to click on DVD-Rom. Click on Content then click Choose. This will open up a folder where you will put a check mark in the box labeled DVD-Rom. This will take you to the Writing folder, which is the contents of the DVD-Rom folder. At the bottom of this page, you will select Choose, which will choose the contents of the DVD-Rom folder. You should be brought back to the previous page where you selected Content. 

Step 3: Check the Format of the Rom

Under the Location field, you will see a box labeled Joliet Extension Support. You will select this box. This will let you check the Rom format. At the top of the page, click on Build/Format. Scroll back down to the bottom of the page and for the Output Device, and choose Hard Drive from the drop down menu (not the DVD burner). You will next want to go to the bottom of the page and click on Build a Format. This will allow you to see that you have already set up the DVD-Rom content. You will save this to a folder by clicking Save at the bottom of the page. Once you see Formatting Successful/Formatting Finished, then you can click Ok and Save to save any changes. 

Step 4: Play the Video Content

Click on the Image File you saved to the folder. You will see three items saved in this file labeled Audio_TS, Video_TS and Writing. The Writing folder actually has the DVD-Rom content listed in the menu.psd file that you see if you click on it. Now if you will go to your DVD player, you can actually play the content of the file. Click on the words Button 1 to play the video.
