Apple has released
DVD Studio Pro
v4.1.2, an update to its DVD authoring software for video professionals. The new version is available for download from Apple’s Web site.
DVD Studio Pro, included as part of Apple’s Final Cut Studio software suite, provides professional-level DVD mastering capabilities. It’s designed to integrate with Final Cut Pro HD, Motion, Adobe Photoshop and other tools.
This new update addresses a compatibility issue with HD DVD projects and Toshiba HD DVD players. Apple also notes “important bug fixes.”
DVD Studio Pro 4.1.2 also updates the Disc Description Protocol (DDP) from 2.1 to 3.0 and the Cutting Master Format (CMF) from 1.0 to 2.0 — both of these are required for HD DVD replication.
Apple recommends the update for all DVD Studio Pro 4.1 users.
