iMovie only has the option to export the film as a .mp4 file. I know that MAGIX can create title cards and menus etc. Is it possible to do the same with Apple Software?

I also haven't found any option to burn the movie file on a DVD other than burn, but that was last updated in 2017

Burn should still work.
There's also the old Apple iDVD & though I haven't tested burning anything with it, it still appears to work on Mojave.
It appears to also still be available from Apple - https://support.apple.com/downloads/iDVD

Macworld did an article on it a few years ago & came to similar conclusions - How to burn movies to disc in an iDVD-less world

They also mentioned Roxio Toast (now up to v17) as a paid alternative

BTW, I can't properly test any of this, as I have no DVD drive except in the Mac. I have to rip bought DVDs to even be able to watch them on the TV ;)

    iDVD available from the link in your answer is actually an upgrade installer which e.g. iDVD 7.1.2 the file within the iDVD7.1.2Update.dmg file errors out with "Alert iDVD 7.0.4 or later is required to install this update." however, it appears to install properly using Pacifist to install it.

Given the posting date the following may not be the optimal solution – now. But as a general answer to question I recommend to look into the following alternatives:

Apple iDVD is at 7.1.2 from 12 July 2011 and costs quite a stipend for simple yet limited functionality.

For video editing: OpenShot, free, cross platform, version 2.4.3, released 22 September 2018

For creating DVDs:

DVDStyler, free cross platform, last updated Aug 28, 2018

OpenDVDproducer, free, cross platform, version 16.11 released on Nov 16, 2016

  • That I‘ve asked a day before Christmas doesn’t mean anything - just that I finally got around finishing that project. Thanks for the alternatives, I‘ll look into them!
