I revert back to idvd04?
No. Don't revert back to iDvd4. Stay where you are in terms of iDvd'08.
However, you may want to consider the free iMovie 6 download from apple (assuming you own iLife '08 already and that your user profile is correct in that you have a G4).
Also please read up on the minimum system requirements for iLife'08 in terms of iMovie7. If I'm not mistaken, I think it will only run well on a G5 or higher and is not really built for a G4 processor.
iMovie7 requires a Mac with an Intel processor, a Power Mac G5 (dual 2.0GHz or faster), or an iMac G5 (1.9GHz or faster; iDVD requires a 733MHz or faster processor.

So being underspec for imovie, ruined the file I loaded into idvd08? Hmm should not have taken the try when i read the requirements for imovie07. My bad. Btw, imovie07 did not showed symptoms because of my 1,25ghz, in fact i found it more responsive than its predecessor imovie04
well imovie08 runs smoothly, but i can't explain why. Anyway, i used imovie06 as you suggested and thing seems to be fine for now. At first idvd calculated 1,5 hours, but now it estimated to 3 hours, on performance setting. For me it is a gain of 2 hours (used to be 5h before upgrade), so i won't complain. Thank you very much for the tips!
