iMovie is the camcorder-editor in the iLIfe suite of apps ...-
if you really want a all content onto a disk, launch iDVD and import straight into a new project.
DVDs are highly compressed and meant as 'end of the road'-product - re-importing into any editor creates noticeable loss of quality.

I've been through this trial-by-fire in the past six months, so I'm going to keep it short and not too technical.
If you have all the clips inside the same PROJECT, then just hold down the <control key>, click the PROJECT, and select <share to iDVD>. From there, the Mac will start iDVD; it may ask you to select a theme if you haven't done that before. If you have, it will bring up the theme you last used.
You can then pop in the DVD to burn to and select the circular button at the bottom of the screen which will start the burn session.
NOTE: In iDVD, you may want to go to PROJECT-->Project Info to make sure the VideoMode setting is correct. NTSC for North America or PAL for Europe.
I hope this helps. You may want to create movie trailers with the footage you've got via iMovie. The end product will be pretty cool.

I have tried the OneStep DVD but nothing happens. I connect my camcorder, turn it on, and IPhoto pops open automatically and wants to import the videos. When I open iDVD and press OneStep DVD, I get the instruction box with the "OK" button, and then I insert a DVD and press"ok", but then it just goes back to the opening iDVD screen. So camcorder is talking to the computer (iPhoto), but not to iDVD.
