The easiest way to organize videos or movies on Mac is to burn it on a DVD so that it does not occupy a lot of memory space. You can, of course, use this as a backup option to make multiple copies of a single video or a group of small video clips.
Here are some simple steps wherein you can use iMovies – the standard tool that comes with Macbook to manage videos and movies – to burn videos to a DVD.
1. Video from your video camera is imported as an iMovie “Event”. However, this is only for video camcorder or HD camera. Videos from your phone or DSLR will be imported into iPhoto and can be found in iMovie under iPhoto Movies.
2. Create an iMovie Project and drag clips from “Events” into it. This is where you can add titles, transitions, photos, et al.
3. Share your projects to media browser iDVD so that they can be formatted correctly. In iDVD you can create DVD chapters and menus.
4. The previous step can take a while, so use that time to make and print the DVD label. It is better to make it beforehand so that as soon as the DVD pops out, you can put it in the correct place.
5. Burn this project to a DVD. You can also make multiple copies because once it has burned, an additional copy will take only a few minutes to burn.
