My wife is one of the billions who have no interest in computers per se, but want to use them to do things — just as I have no interest in cars but want to use them to drive places. She’s just spent a solid 20 solid minutes trying to figure out how to export a video file from iDVD on her Mac, so she can upload it to YouTube. No dice.
So I stepped in, a professional programmer, wise in the ways of computers. I was ready to click a couple of menu items, File -> Export -> MP4, and save the day in 30 seconds. Twenty more minutes later, here I am.
It appears that Apple have removed that option from iDVD.
How have I concluded this? By exhaustion. I’ve certainly not found an announcement or anything — far less an explanation. Somewhere in the upgrade treadmill, this crucial feature has simply been taken out the back and quietly shot.
