DVD Studio Pro 1.5 Supports Mac OS X -- Apple today announced the release of DVD Studio Pro 1.5, a new version of the company's professional DVD authoring tool that adds Mac OS X compatibility. DVD Studio Pro, which sells for $1,000, offers high-end features such as full-motion menus, higher-quality audio and video, and inclusion of DVD-ROM material along with video, to separate itself from Apple's free consumer-level iDVD authoring utility. The new version of DVD Studio Pro can also use chapter markers set in Final Cut Pro during the video editing phase of a project to create chapters on a final video DVD. (This feature requires Final Cut Pro 3.0.2, scheduled for release later this month as a free update for Final Cut Pro 3 users.) Owners of earlier versions of DVD Studio Pro can upgrade for $200.

ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut
For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.
You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.
