Hi I have Fantashow 1.3 and a new mac computer and apple don`t have iDVD on there computers anymore how can I save a movie I have made that I made before I new iDVD was not in the machine anymore, as I wanted for xmas presents, what do I save it as so I can burn to a DVD so I can play on a DVD player connected to my TV Any help appreciated Thanks from Belinda.
I want the DVD Slideshow Builder hope you will make it available for Mac pls.
In fact, I use the old version of Fantashow: It's far better than the new version.
I would love to purchase DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe because of it being far more professional the Fantashow - which has been described by numerous bloggers as "cheesy". Such a watered down version compared to what is offered to PC owners. I own a MAC not a PC. No, I don't want to run VMware Fusion on my MAC. Please explain the logic in not having the DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe available for MAC users?
