Simple DVD Question...Please Help

Okay, so I shoot a 30p video, edit it, and bring it into DVD Studio Pro. There, I create all of the neccesary menus etc. I send this off to a replicating house and have 15,000 DVDs produced. Is it that simple? Are there bumps along the road that I need to consider while shooting...editing...creating a menu...????

Not so simple...

First, I would contact the replication studio and ask for their input about formats, bitrates, navigation menus, and other things to look for in general - they know best what kind of issues are they running into with masters they receive.

Second, I would test the heck out of the master to make sure the menus work properly on all brands of different players.

Other than that, good luck and keep us posted what problems you're running into and what solutions you find as this is an area where few of us have gone.
