So You need to partitioning the movie first to
< 59 minutes - or -
< 119 minutes - or -
< 235 minutes (Double Layer DVDs)
IF YOU USE a very very simple - no animation - no audio MENU e.g. from old themes as "Brushed Metal"
Menus - takes up space = less left for movie. And this can be 15 minutes or even more !
1. iDVD 08, 09 & 11 has three levels of qualities. (version 7.0.1, 7,0.4 & 7.1.1) and iDVD 6 has the two last ones
• Professional Quality
(movies + menus up to 120 min.) - BEST (but not always for short movies e.g. up to 45 minutes in total)
• Best Performances
(movies + menus less than 60 min.) - High quality on final DVD (Can be best for short movies)
• High Quality (in iDVD08 or 09) / Best Quality (in iDVD6)
(movies + menus up to 120 min.) - slightly lower quality than above
Menu can take 15 minutes or even more - I use a very simple one with no audio or animation like ”Brushed Metal” in old Themes.
About double on DL DVDs.

To split a movie over several DVDs - You need another tool than iDVD to do this. As I remembers it Roxio Toast™ has this function. Go to their Internet site and READ.

Thanks. I think Apple has really missed the target wth their video editing capability. It was breeze on my old Windows 7 latop. I've been trying to make the full commitment to my new MacBook but I think my next computer will be Windows 8 and I will stay on my WIndow 7 computer for video editing. My view of Apple at the moment is that it is a lot of hype and not much depth.
I do appreciate the time you took to reply. Very gracious of you. Thank you.
