    I have lots of DV cassettes I want to load and eventually get to DVD.
    In iMovie I have taken the first cassette and did my montage the way I want it. Now, I want to export this movie (as a single file if possible) so that when I will have a few of them, I will use iDVD to do DVD menus and add all my movies.

    I can only export to iDVD and for Quicktime the selection is pretty low. How can I achieve that?

    First timer on iMovie :(

    Just create separate iMovie projects. Don't export them, then when you are ready, import projects together. You'll have to edit them together a bit, and it's easier to create your Chapter Markers in iMoive....iDVD will pick up on this for you.

    then Export to iDVD, create your Menus, and burn away.

    In imovie you should be able to export to Quicktime (select 1280x720p). Then import this into iDVD. I did this with my last project and quality was very high.
