apple_idvd_patent

Another Apple patent this time in the video field. Custom themes and dropzone usage when making DVDs gets wrapped up in 'Creating a theme used by an authoring application to produce a multimedia presentation'

Apple Patent 

All rather odd you would think as iDVD has been one of those apps ignored recently in the ilife '11 update  Also is anybody actually burning anything anymore apart from the odd film of young Johnny for Grandma's old DVD player.

What could be more interesting is that the Apple theme and inspector way of producing 'multimedia presentations' works across many apps, Keynote, iWeb and more importantly iMovie. Who knows, a similar method could even make it into the Apple Pro Apps one day.
