    cool thanks for the reply, ill check out pixelmator,

    also whats the best and easiest no fuss way to create a cool looking dvd with fancy menus and etc,

    apparently idvd is called at 60mins,
    roxio toast is way too slow
    "burn" is great for data, lacking in dvd options
    and amerisoft dvd creator seems pretty poor

    thanks

    You can change the settings in iDVD. Project > Project Info ... Change to Professional Quality, I have a 94 minute movie in this project.

    I want to get Tiffen's DFX when I have a spare $100 kicking around.

    http://www.tiffen.com/dfx_v2_home.html

    1000 one-click effects that digitally mimic the most popular effects of Tiffen filters. They have an iPhone app that's pretty decent. I'd expect the desktop app to be pretty good.

    Have a look at some samples: http://www.tiffen.com/dfx_v2_image_gallery.htm

    I have used burn before and that was slower than disk utillity I plan on burning a few movies. Would iDVD be the best bet.
