My wife is trying to create a DVD of some video clips to give to our daughter. We made the movie OK, now when we are trying to "share" it so we can open in iDVD, it takes forever.

The video is less than an hour long, it's been buzzing along for a few hours already (original estimate was it would take about 3 hours). We selected "large". What's the best settings to use to get a faster export?

Original video was shot on a standard def camcorder, playback will be on moderate size (26" or less) TV.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.5), iMovie 08

    a. Free space on start-up hard disk. How much ? - I've >25Gb free space

    b. Doing DVDs from iMovie'08 or 09 - are not 100% quality tool.

    iMovie HD6 (or FinalCut) + iDVD = Best possibly quality.

    iM'08 & 09 discards every second line when going to DVD = VHS-quality or less.
