    Hey folks!

    I've got an iDVD project that lasts 2hours and 42minutes...iDVD won't let me save as a disk image, or as a video_ts file...I'm wondering if I could just save the project as an iDVD project, bring it into Toast to compress it, and then re-import it into iDVD to burn it?
    Can anyone tell me if this is possible? and if so...what are the steps I'd take to do it?
    Thanks in advance!

    It's simply too much video for a single DVD. Can you not split it into two?

    There is a setting on iDVD in the Preferences. I don't remember what it's called exactly, but it's something about a choice between "Best Quality" and something else. You might want to check what this is set too, and change it to see if it makes a difference. Sometimes the right one will force fit the video for you.

    Sorry, you can't do that. Maybe use Dual Layer DVD media? Check to see if your DVD-R drive support is. Most iMacs post intel do IIRC.
