Archived - Burning Keynote presentations in iDVD
When you export a Keynote presentation (one that contains audio) as a QuickTime movie and then try to burn it to a disc using iDVD, the audio won't be on the resulting disc. This happens because a Keynote QuickTime export produces two separate files:
The title.mov file must reference the title_soundtrack.mov file to play the audio in QuickTime Player. However, this reference is lost when the title_soundtrack.mov isn't imported.
To keep the audio intact when burning a DVD:
- Import both of the exported .mov files into iMovie, and drag them to the Timeline.
- In the Timeline, trim the audio to the video track.
- In iMovie's iDVD pane, click the "Create iDVD Project" button.
- In iDVD, burn your project.
This can occur with Keynote versions 1 and 2 and with all versions of iMovie and iDVD.
