If I use Toast to burn multiple .DV files (converted by Toast) using compress onto a single layer DVD, I get a pause between each file, so I wanted to put them all into the one file before burning.

 

Problem.

 

Imported 5 .DV filles into iMovie 11 New Event as a block. Exported as Quick Time. Found file order not correct, eg File 1 was in position 4.

 

Tried importing in 1, 2 order and it appeared as 2, 1. Imported in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 order but it turned-out to be 2, 3, 4, 5, 1.

 

File 1 was the last one converted, so it appears iMovie puts it in date/time order. I can't find a 'sort' like iPhoto has. Also, I can't find anyway of sorting in this forum.

 

Does anyone know of a way to sort New Event videos so that I can drag them all to the project in one go? I've tried one-by-one, but get a gap in between each one.

 

Alternatively, how do I drag each New Event video to the Project without any gap between them?

 

Before you suggest it, I've tried iPhoto and export as Slideshow. Problems. Converting orig to .Mov (HD) eventually produces bad vieo after a hugh amount of total processing time and iPhoto deosn't recognise .DV.

 

Any ideas?
