    Ok ive been messing with this for just about 2 hours. (Im a recent convert, so be patient :) )

    First i started out in iMovie, then i quickly realized that i didnt want to edit my videos. What i want to do is, i have 6 episodes of a show, i want to put them onto a DVD. So i went to iDVD and configure everything, import the video, and make it how i want it.

    Then i realize that my 4GB DVDs arent big enough as the thing is 133 minutes long. So i just now want to export into aa Video_TS folder. But no, it tells me its too long, and to change the encoding. Now why would i want to downgrade the quality just to save a couple of Mbs? {and its actually on the lowest setting right now)

    So now im stuck. I dont know what to do. Nero was perfect tbh. I dont necessarily want a new app to do this for me, as its getting quite annoying downloading seperate apps all the time.

    Sorry about the rant :eek: I really do love this iMac ;)

    Can someone help me out?

    You probably want Toast, Roxio's mac equivalent of Nero

    I do have toast, stupid me, i actualyl thought the app that came with the comp would be better than one that didn't. :(

    Ok ill start again in Toast, but before i start is there any limitation in it that I should be aware of?

    How else do you think Nero does it? It compresses your files more to fit them into your DVD, so you will lose quality.

    Ok i guess your right about that. But nero is a hell of a lot easir to go through when your making a DVD (ofcourse you dont have as fancy menu themes). And theres no reason for it not to export the whole project onto my HDD (as a DVD not as a project file).
