I did my first conversion of some video from Mini-DV to DVD using my new iMac yesterday. I read the "Getting Started" tutorials for iMovie and iDVD and successfully burned a DVD. It came out good in the end, but I'm not sure I did things the best way. I wanted to section the video so when I watch the DVD I can click on a "button" from the menu for whatever section I want. So, I transferred all the video from the camcorder to iMac. That was easy. Then, I went into iMovie and marked off the sections of the video I wanted as "favorites" and it put a green line above it, then I selected the option for it to only display the favorites. So, it was easy to edit out the bad parts. Then, I dragged it all from the Event Library to the Project Library. I went to Share-Media Browser and clicked on Publish. Then, I went into iDVD and was able to get the video into it. But, I couldn't get it into sections like I wanted. So, I went back into iMovie and did a File-Duplicate Project and named it with a "-1" at the end. Then, in the Event Library I selected the first section of the video (so it had the yellow boarder around it) then dragged it to the Project Library. Then, I did a Share-Media Brower and clicked on Publish. I went back to the original and did a File-Duplicate Project and named it with a "-2" at the end, and repeated the whole thing for the next section. I did this for each section, "-3", "-4", etc. Then, I went into iDVD and was able to get the video into sections like I wanted. I renamed the "-1", "-2" stuff to what I wanted and burned the DVD. Did I do this right or did I do this the hard way?
