In regards to they set up for music, I know how I would go about it using the entire final cut studio, but I know its a lot of work and needs knowledge of the entire final cut studio, and I would not see it worth it for this kind of thing, however I will tell you how I would do it any way.
I would first open up sound track pro, I would take all your mp3's and convert them to AIFF, and put them into a folder with a name where you will remember where you put your music.
Then I would go to final cut pro, and I would start typing out the text and then laying down graphics. I would put all of the text on a higher up level depending on how intense your are planning on making your graphics. Then I would use photoshop to help me with album artwork to make it look more apple like (reflection, pivot in 3d space, and a little glare) and I would add that to the left hand side of the text. I would then place a chapter marker at the beginning of the song, name it what the song is, and then go from there...(repeating the process for every song you want) (I would probably do 1 final cut project per artist to make it easier for you when you are making the dvd in dvd studio pro.
That is a a great suggestion of yours! Just one thing, though, I cannot do. the Photoshop work you said, can I use Corel Draw 11 instead of Adobe, because I dont have Photoshop on my Mac, cuz they havent released the Universal binary version for Intel-based Macs yet, so what do you think? Also... do you know on the iPod, when yo uare playing a song and there is a blue line that tells you the minutes and the time left of the song that is playing? Can I also do that on Final Cut Studio? How?

Thanks for the big help,
