Our band was recorded at a festival and the guy provided us with a dvd. Said we could copy it, post it whatever. So, I got it put into iMovie. Now I hear I need to export it to iDVD to burn a copy. But for some reason, I click on the project but the export option is not available. Why is this not intuitive. I've fought with it for hours can someone please help. I really wanted to divide the recording into chapters for each one of the songs we performed. Any help with that is appreciated also. Thanks in advance.

Why not just do a straight DVD copy? Burn should do the trick quite easily.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Does that require a special software package?

cwa107 has provided a link ib his post to the open source program Burn, just follow his link and download the program, it will be able to duplicate the original DVD

Also if you are having problems with iMovie, try the Share option under the file menu, one export option there is full quality DV, from which you could also burn a dvd, with chapter markers

THanks, I downloaded BURN and was able to get a file encoded and burned, but it won't play on my computer or stand alone dvd player?

On the iMovie, I can never get the share option to allow me to share. The list on the dropdown menu is shaded. Help, this seems alot more complicated than it should, or I'm a dunce one, could be the latter. Thanks for the help. I feel like I'm just missing something and the help options don't walk me through it.
