I have a series of avi files that I would like to make into a DVD through iDVD, but I know that iDVD is funny about what format it does and doesn't allow.

I have mpeg streamclip but I'm not really sure what settings to use. I don't want to lose quality, that said, I don't plan on doing any editing, do I don't need (ie) DV quality.

I'm assuming that I'll have to export as some form of mpeg or quicktime movie, but I get confused on all the options.

Any help would be much appreciated

avi files are about 45 minutes at 250-300 megs each.

I've googled lots of converters, and have tried them but they're all so difficult to use if you don't know what you're doing. i'm open for suggestions but I need my hand held.

ffmpegX? :

Download ffmpegX a DVD, SVCD, VCD, CVD, VOB, DivX, XviD, H.264, PSP, iPod, MP4, MOV encoder for Mac OSX

or invest in Toast it's far less hassle than iDVD.
