hey!! i am trying to make a movie on IDVD, and im finished it!! But it wont let me burn my dvd to a disk because of Maximum Content Issues. The movie that i filmed yesterday, was only 759.1MB, and on idvd it is saying that it is 4.226GB!!!! Here is the statistics:

Project:
- total project duration: 146:29 minutes
- total project capacity: 4.948 GB (max. available: 4.172 GB)

Menus:
- number of menus in project: 4 menus
- total menu duration: 12:51 minutes
- total menu capacity: 738 MB

Movies:
- total movies duration: 133:38 minutes
- total movies capacity: 4.226 GB

If any of you could help me figure this out, or tell me what i can do that would be great!!

Thanks in advance
Mike

On a single layer disk you will only have 4.2 GBs available as you see. On a dual layer disk you have 7.7 GBs available. Also I believe there might be a 2 hour limit in iDVD. You can try changing the encoding method to best performance or high quality. That may reduce the size of your final project.

You will most likely need to reduce the total time to less that 2 hours. And also look at using either best performance or high quality for encoding.

Either make a personal choice and figure out where to trim 13 minutes or upgrade to a more advanced DVD authoring program. I recommend DVD Studio Pro.
