    Hey Guys, I had the same problem, and I tried every recommendation. So, I gave in and called the smart people at apple. , He made me delete some files.Here they are:
    P.S. Get ride can mean move to desktop or trash (don't trash until you know it worked)

    Go to finder
    *Serve-Library-Quicktime-(then get ride of anything But ApplIntermediantCodec.component, and AppleMPEG2Codec.component)

    *Home-Library-caches-com.apple.idvd- (get ride of ride of it all)

    *Home-Preference-(get ride of com.apple.IDVD.plist)


    I hope this works.

    Ben

    I fixed my error!

    I tried all of these fixes, but nothing helped. I continued to get the same render/encoding error. But I finally did get it working.

    I think my problem may have been that I was adding the chapter markers from within iDVD, the stupid "ever N minutes" way. I would then cut-and-paste the "play movie" and "scene selection" buttons to the main title screen.

    My solution was to do proper chapter markers in Garage Band, then in Garage Band select "Share --> Send Movie to iDVD".

    This is like voodoo. Why can't iDVD give you some kind of useful error message?
