I've already responded to your other thread that you started....steveandkaren said:Help! can't burn movie to DVD using Imovie
I've just compiled a 45 min long movie from mini DV using Imovie. Its made up of lots of short clips with audio over the top and is quite large at 25GB in its uncompressed state. I am trying to compress it, so that I can burn to a DVD capacity 4.7Gb.
Can anyone tell me how to compress, I have tried compressing using the default settings and also the expert settings, however got an error message saying that it contained some data which was didn't allow it to be compressed????
Does anyone know how I can fit this onto a DVD (I have to do a presentation on Sunday and don't want to have to take my imac with me!)
To use iMovie for your editing you'll need to convert the dvd content to a format that imovie can handle. It needs to be in either .dv format or .mp4 format (.mov quicktime files are also ok). I believe that you could use a program like handbrake to do the conversion, or look around versiontracker for other solutions.L A R E ! said:I am having trouble importing video from a camcorder that puts the video on one of those mini. dvd disks. please help
