I'd like to burn a MOV to a DVD that I can play on a DVD player. I can do it on iDVD but I can't figure out how to do it without a "theme". Is there a way to do this?

The file is 935.4MB

Thanks in advance.

in idvd i think you have to use a theme.

What you can do though is choose the theme of your choice and then view in "tree mode" i think thats the term used - the button looks like a flow chart and is at the bottom of the imovie window.

You can then move the "movie file" to the begining of the dvd so that it plays the movie before the menu.

there may be an option to loop the movie i cant remember, if not the menu will just be played after the movie finishes.

i hope this helps, sorry for the vague explainations, im not at my mac right now so cant give you any more clearer instructions.

let us know how you get on, if you cant figure it out i can then give you detailed instructions when i am at home

I dragged this from another forum, so credit to this guy not me if it helps lol:

in iDVD it's not exactly possible to make a DVD without menu, but there's a few workarounds:

1. Easy: Drop your iMovie in the autoplay box in iDVD's Map View, then set your autoplay item (your movie) to loop continously. Disadvantage: The DVD plays until you hit stop on the remote

2. Still easy: If you don't want your (autoplay) movie to loop, you can create a black theme"by replacing the background of a static theme with a black background and no content in the dropzone (text needs to be black as well). Disadvantage: The menu is still there and will play after the movie. You don't see it, but your disc keeps spinning in the player.
On the other hand, you could also place a text saying "The End" in that menu ....

3. Easy enough but needs 3rd party software: Toast lets you burn your iMovie to DVD without menu - just un-check the appropriate check box

4. The "hard way": postproduction with myDVDedit
Tools necessary: myDVDedit ( myDVDEdit :: Home )

• create a disc image of your iDVD project, then double-click to mount it.
• Extract the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders to a location of your choice. select the VIDEO_TS folder and hit Cmd + I to open the Inspector window
• Set permissions to "read & write" and include all enclosed items; Ignore the warning.
• Open the VIDEO_TS folder with myDVDedit. You'll find all items enclosed in your DVD in the left hand panel.
• Select the menu (usually named VTS Menu) and delete it
• Choose from the menu File > Test with DVD Player to see if your DVD behaves as planned.If it works save and close myDVDedit.
• Before burning the folders to Video DVD, set permissions back to "read only", then create a disc image burnable with Disc Utility from a VIDEO_TS folder using Laine D. Lee's DVD Imager:

hope this helps
