There is no getting away from the fact that it is important to understand the
technical processes involved with DVD production to effectively work with this
medium. This does not mean you need to know every single detail about the
inner workings of the technology – but a general overview is essential. Just as
one can drive a car without knowing how to build an engine, one can author
DVDs without knowing all the technical processes that go into the production
of the shiny silver disks.
