Hi everyone

I want to export my edited film from Final Cut Express in Widescreen and burn it with iDVD. To make iDVD burn the exported file, I learned (after googling it) to that you have to set the pixel size to 1024x576 using quicktime conversion.

BUT, when I do this it doesn't export the chapter markers for iDVD.

Is there any way I can export from FCE in widescreen with my DVD markers in place or set custom chapter points instead of every x number of minutes.
