    I've searched this site and googled a fair bit, but without joy.

    What software do people recommend to use to burn good quality DVDs (1080p) of their aerial videos? ( I'm assuming you can't burn 2.7k?)
    I like iMovie to use so probably just want to use a 3rd party software burning app.
    I have an Imac ( sadly without iDVD)
    I tried amiersoft dvd burn but the quality was as bad as the Dji app!

    Free is good and £20 a month is way too much.

    I don't want to stick it on YouTube, just give my Mum ( or my neighbours) a video of her house and village she can watch on tv (42 inch but sadly the usb input doesn't work)
    Her dvd player does though.

    Thanks
    Ty

    Let me know if you find a decent DVD burning software for Mac. I have an Macbook Pro without iDVD and need a DVD burning software to burn my aerial videos to DVD. I like what iMovie does but currently don't have a way to burn my productions to DVD.

    Videopad is good.
    For me, the problem is getting the quality of playback of the DVDs to be as near as possible that of the output from the drone. After I've edited the drone video in either iMovie or Videopad, then saved it to file on the computer (the size of the file has increased dramatically for some reason) the playback quality is excellent in either .mov or .mp4 format. BUT, when I burn the video onto a DVD, the quality is dreadful. I have tried burning a 4gb file to a 4.7gb DVD, the results are still lousy. Will using a Blu-Ray burner to an appropriate disc be better?
