How to make a looping DVD the easy way

Software procedure for building an autoplay DVD that loops video content:

In Final Cut Pro:
- Set In and Out points for your project
- Think about what you want to achieve with your loop -- repetition of something with a start and an end, or seamless continuity of something that seemingly has no start and no end?
- Export as appropriate Quicktime format -- generally NTSC 4:3 or NTSC 16:9

In Toast:
- Mode: Video: DVD-Video
- Options: Menu Style: No Menus
- Options: Auto-play disc on insert
- Options: Play all items continuously
