    I've got my movie finished in iMovie. All I want to do is send it to iDVD to burn a DVD, without menus, titles, chapters, etc. I just want the DVD to autoplay when I put it in a DVD player, without any interaction from the user. Is this possible??

    Export your movie from iMovie, grab the file and drop it into the "Drop content here to automatically play...." section (see pic).

    The DVD will then jump to whatever menu is set in the Menu 1 position.

    You stand a better chance in DVD Studio pro, cos you can set a DVD to autoplay and loop, i.e. it only stops when you eject, but I don't think you can do that with iDVD.

    You could simply bounce the movie back to your camcorder after the edit and then use the "One Step DVD" feature of iDVD 5 to create a DVD with no menus etc....
