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.
