Hi all,

While I've looked at a bunch of threads on iDVD (I have 7.1.1 on my new imac 27) I cant seem to help but thinking that this application is a total pig. I dont own anything other than Toast Titanium v 10 (which is also slow) but I never thought Id come across an app that performs this badly on a quad core i7.

My biggest issue right now is how do I prevent iDVD from opening my previous video project? I have been making DVDs of downloaded shows for family and at the painful conclusion to burning the DVDs (11 hours in some cases) I close iDVD. Next day, I fire it up to burn another disc and it literally takes iDVD 25 minutes to launch as it reopens the previous day's project. ARGHHHHH. Why? I closed it. Why not open the main menu and let me decide if I want to re-open an old project? And why should it take 25 min to launch a fully-rendered project anyway?

This app has been the one and only blemish on my new mac ownership. Please tell me its being radically overhauled

/rant OFF/

Thanks

Hmm...that's what it should do. You should get a panel giving the option to start a new project, open an old one etc.

MightyGem, you were right and I solved this one on my own. What I needed to do at the completion of a project was click 'Close Window' (that closes the project, apparently) because if you shut down with a project window open, it reopens it. Now I know.

Of course, everything about iDVD is still painfully slow. A simple action like dragging a movie file into a project, locks it up for 5 minutes or more (spinning beachball) Overall, not impressed with iDVD
