Play one video after the other in iDVD

How do I set up iDVD so that Movie B starts to play automatically after Movie A without returning to the menu? User clicks on Movie A and sees it and then Movie B and then is returned to menu.
The reason for this: I have a large iMovie project which iMovie cannot export to a single HD 1080p MOV file for import into iDVD. I now have to try spiltting my project into 2 or more parts and export a HD 1080p MOV file for each part. I then import the parts into iDVD and string them together so that they play as a single movie when the user clicks on Movie A.
I am running the latest version of iMovie11: 9.0.4 (1634) and iDVD 7.1.2 (1158). My raw project is 116 MB and 66min in size. I am working on a 15.4inch MacBook Pro I bought in Jan 2009 with the following spec: Mac OS X version 10.6.8, Processor is 3.06 GHz Intel Core2 Duo, Memory is 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 with 250GB solid state drive and 120GB free.

Don't bother exporting your movie as a 1080p MOV file, because using iDVD, you can't burn an HD DVD.
To record moving pictures, DVD-Video uses either MPEG-2 compression at up to 9.8 Mbit/s (9,800 kbit/s) or MPEG-1 compression at up to 1.856 Mbit/s (1,856 kbit/s).
The following formats are allowed for MPEG-2 video:
At 25 frame/s, interlaced (commonly used in regions with 50 Hz image scanning frequency - PAL):
720 × 576 pixels (same resolution as D-1)
704 × 576 pixels
352 × 576 pixels (same as the China Video Disc standard)
At 29.97, interlaced (commonly used in regions with 60 Hz image scanning frequency - NTSC):
720 × 480 pixels (same resolution as D-1)
704 × 480 pixels
352 × 480 pixels (same as the China Video Disc standard)
The following formats are allowed for MPEG-1 video:
352 × 288 pixels at 25 frame/s, progressive (Same as the VCD Standard)
352 × 240 pixels at 29.97 frame/s, progressive (Same as the VCD Standard)
You'll need something like Roxio's Toast if you want HD dvds.
Roxio Toast 11 Family - DVD Burning - Video Conversion - Music and Video Capture for Mac
If you want to stay with iDVD then just send it straight to iDVD using iMovie's Share menu. At 66 minutes, it will fit on a standard dvd.
