    OK so i've been burning a few AVI movies to DVD to watch on my tv with iDVD. they come out a little pixelated but i don't mind too much (any recs on this?)

    my issue is this: the converted movie takes up a huge amount of space. originally i used the full iDVD program and it left a 3-4gb file which i could delete. i started using the quick burn from movie feature to burn the movies cuz i dont care about the menus and all that ish. however, i can see my HD space going after each burn and i have no idea where these files are, but i know they're somewhere. and it tries to reconvert when i reburn. any suggestions?

    Have you tried looking in the obvious places like your Documents and Movies folder? I seem to remember them still getting saved as huge iDVD projects even though you're staying in iMovie.

    Does the size of your iMovie project go up after such a burn?

    you could use spotlight to find them then reveal in finder, then delete them or what ever
