Planning to Start Planning

In Chapter 1, I said that planning might be the most important part of the whole process. You'll hear me say that a lot. But I also understand the human need to just roll up your sleeves and do it.

So, even if you choose to devote only a few minutes to planning your DVD project, this chapter will help you use those few minutes wisely.

I've found that the time I spend planning a project is almost always repaid with interest when I finish on time (or early), on budget (or under), and without having a lot of "do-overs" (if any) because of poor planning.


You may notice that much of this book isn't actually about iDVD itself. That's entirely by design. Frankly, iDVD is so easy to use that even if I were at my most verbose, if all I did was explain how to use iDVD, this book would have to be titled The Extremely Short iDVD Book. So though the title is The Little iDVD Book, it probably should have been called, "How to Make Good DVDs with iDVD," which, by the way, requires a lot more than just a copy of iDVD and a SuperDrive.

One last thing: I'm going to cover items in the order I consider them when I'm working on my own projects. Your style may be different, so feel free to combine steps, change the order, or even omit them. It's your project; this chapter is just food for thought before you fall too much in love with your project to think clearly.
