Copy and Paste iDVD Drop Zone Contents

iDVD didn’t get much love from Apple in iLife ’08, but a few nice features crept past the “DVDs are yesterday’s technology” wall. Case in point: copy and paste drop zone media.

Let’s say you put together a killer group of photos in a drop zone on the front page and you want to use it elsewhere in the project (or you want to use that as a starting point and build from there, versus recreating the photo group from scratch).

After setting up your source drop zone, Control-click the zone and choose Copy Drop Zone Contents from the contextual menu. Next, navigate to the destination drop zone, Control-click, and choose Paste Drop Zone Contents from the contextual menu. You’ve just saved yourself a bunch of work.
