I have now tried several of the suggestions regarding exporting from imovie to idvd, and I'm wondering whether I'm just missing something. Many of the posts here mention a 2 hour movie length limit, but imovie says the file is 31 minutes long. Once exported to idvd, the file size is a little over 7 GB, and won't open in any of the themes or even as a project, new or existing. Is the file size limiting it? Is the imovie length indicated irrelevant in idvd? Do I need to change settings somehow in imovie before exporting? Thanks.
