OT: The State of Video Capture Spring 2007

Hiya,

Had a little think:

Keynote can export to QT movie format:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Keynote/3.0/en/key18.html
I'm assuming this can be scripted.

Script the audio (pre-recorded and tagged): Tag the QT mov to pull in 
and play the audio - Save the QT mov with the audio.

Convert the QT mov to DVD format. I haven't done any QT mov conversions, 
but I have used VisualHub (http://www.techspansion.com/visualhub/) to 
convert other file types to DVD. I recall there being an additional 
download to do this from the Apple site (the mpeg2encoder methinks) for 
VisualHub to do it, but I can't be sure right now.
It also exports for iPod, so you could offer that as an alternative to 
the DVD...

Don't know if this helps.

Cheers,

Luis.
