    Does anyone know of any software that will let me convert my imovie 11 imported videos (from our mini-DV camera) into a dvd that will create a menu and have chapters per video.

    doesn't have to burn the dvd, just an iso at the end would be nice.

    it would be nice if there was an app that would do it all wtih one click, import from mini-dv convert to dvd with a menu and chapters.

    any advice would be much appreciated.

    I believe that iDVD can do this if you use the "Create Magic iDVD." But I am not sure if it does it for every single video, but it should as long as you have the Firewire cable.

    Yes, iDVD will let you create chapters, but only every so many minutes. You'll be better off creating your chapters in iMovie, and this transfer to iDVD giving you the option to play individual chapters/videos or play them all one after the other. You'll need to have the "Show Advanced Tools" option ticked in iMovie Preferences.

    To create an iso/disk image in iDVD just choose the File>Save as disk image option

    Alright new plan, most dvd players will play divx.

    What is the best way for me to compress my 13gb of raw dv footage into say a 700mb divx file (or multiple files instead of chapters) to equal about 700mb, or even 1.4gb

    Now you're getting complicated. What was wrong with the iMovie/iDVD plan?
