    I just used iDVD for the first time to burn a self-contained Quicktime video exported from FCE onto DVD. It took over an hour. Is this normal?

    Thanks. :)

    I can't believe I left out that bit of info. The video was over an hour. It doesn't matter if the QT vid is exported as a reference movie instead of self contained, does it?

    There was no theme, menu, and it was all one long chapter.

    No, it doesn't matter. In order for it to burn a DVD, the video must be re-encoded, this takes time.
