    I have about 130 photos in a slide show with music in iPhoto 09. The slide show settings are for the whole slide show are Ken Burns effect, each slide about 8.1 seconds, random transitions, and music fit to the slide show..I Went to "Share" Send to DVD.

    In DVD, I typed in a title and a photo in the drop zone, then I chose as a Burn as a Disc Image. It does some encoding and then a I get an error message when it finishes that says " There was an error during the rendering of the menus/slideshows. The burning process has been canceled".. This basically tells me Nothing!!
    What is wrong? How can I fix this? Using OS 10.5.7 intel dual core. iMac desktop.

    Previously, I had successfully created a DVD of this same slide show, made one DVD, but after seeing in on my DVD player, I tried to fix some things, like fitting the music to the slide show, but that is about all. Frustrated!!

    Now, I am not even sure I could burn a Disc from my original disc image icon.

    Any help will be appreciated....Thanks.

    Similar problems with iMovie + iDVD

    Hi -

    I just ran into a similar problem today with iMovie/iDVD. After creating
    8 clips in iMovie, I then created .mov files for each, and used those as
    "media" in iDVD. After finishing the DVD, I tried to burn it, and it looked
    like it was going OK - but then during the "Burn" phase, the blank DVD
    was ejected, even though it said it was burning and had 4 minutes left.

    After trying this a few times, I decided to try a different approach: I had
    iDVD "Create a VIDEO_TS folder" - this completed properly. I was able
    to run this using DVD Player, so I knew it was good. Then I used Toast 10
    to burn a DVD. This DVD plays in both my iMac and on the DVD player
    in the living room.

    I'm relatively new at this, so I suspect I may have taken the long way to
    get this done. But the source video clips are on a Panasonic PV-GS35
    camera which only has a USB connection. I was never able to get MacOS to
    recognize this USB camera, so again, the long way around was to fire up
    XP Pro inside my VMware Fusion virtual world. Using Panasonic's software
    MotionDV Studio, I was able to upload the video into XP and then share
    it with MacOS. What a long day . . . ;^)

    If anyone else can educate me on a shorter way to do this, I'd appreciate
    it. And I'd like to know if iDVD has a burn problem . . .
