imovie, DVD question

Since the latest release of ilife came out, I'm wondering if the themes in imovie work in tandem with iDVD. Should one use the themes in imovie when puting together a slide show for use with iDVD, or are the themes used solely in imovie? If used, how does that affect the use of themes in iDVD?

While the themes share a common look and feel, the two apps still remain separate. So the choice is up to you as to whether you create your slideshow in one vs. the other.

That being said, you'll have more flexibility in iMovie than you will in iDVD. iDVD slideshows are limited to the DVD spec. iMovie slideshows are actually movie files and have less limitations.

In the past, I've created my slide show in imovie, then opened it in iDVD to burn it to a DVD. I'm assuming that is still the course of action I need to take. From what you've said, I'm thinking I should now use the imovie themes in producing my slideshow, then export it to iDVD. Is this the preferred method? And if so, does it matter when I choose a theme (before importing my photos or after) in imovie?

Picking a theme in iMovie just brings up a series of placeholders for you to drop your photos/movies into. So it would make sense to bring in the photos FIRST before starting to layout your slideshow. Other than that, nothing else has changed in your workflow.
