    I'm relatively new to the video scene, so bear with me. I've searched the forums but have not found the exact answer to my question.

    I have iMovie 2.1.2 on a Mac G4 with a superdrive burner. I've captured video from my mini-dv camcorder and now I want to put it on DVD to be played on any DVD player.

    I've tried a few of the "expert" settings to export it, but none do the trick as far as producing playable DVD's. I have toast titanium 5 and I don't have Quicktime Pro. I also do not have iDVD.

    I have Final Cut Pro on this computer, but have no idea how to use it.

    Is there a simple way to to export directly from iMovie onto a playable DVD, or do I need something else?

    Any advice or expert opinions would be helpful!

    Many thanks!

    In iMovie HD you go to File>Burn to Disc. I'm not sure what version of iMovie you have or if the older versions have that option. It's worth a try though.

    Ace,

    Thanks for the reply. I don't have iMovie HD. My version (iMovie 2.1.2) doesn't have that option.

    Anyone else?

    imovie File/Burn Project to Disc not for playable dvd's

    "This feature creates a duplicate of your project onto a CD or DVD ROM. It does *not* create a video DVD for playing in a DVD player. Do you want to continue?" - -this will be the message you receive (at least in imovie 6)
    so this isn't a viable option for a playable dvd.
