Thread: iDVD + Toast
05-28-2005, 04:03 AM #1iDVD + Toast
I have a quick question for the gurus...
I have iDVD 5 and Roxio Toast.
Currently I have some 4.7 GB DVD-R discs. I want to use iMovie and iDVD to make a disc with some movies and stuff to use on a set-top DVD player.
My iDVD project is more than 4.7 GB when I am done and ready to burn it. Can I take iDVD and instead of burning to a DVD, make it create the VIDEO_TS folder and put files in that on the Hard drive?
Then, I want to use Toast to compress the files, so they can fit on the 4.7 GB discs I have. So basically I can fit a full 9.4 GB worth of movies onto a 4.7 GB disc. I don't know if Toast can do this or if I need to get Popcorn to do it, or if it's even possible to do this.
What do you think?

In iDVD you can Save as a Disc Image which will do all of the rendering for DVD format and save it as a disc image. You can open up the image and it will have a VIEDO_TS folder which you can burn in toast (I don't think it can shrink it down). Only thing i am not sure on is whether or not iDVD will create a disc image of a project bigger than 4.7gbDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System

If iDvd will encode over 4.7 (I think that it should considering Apple now has dual layer dvd's). To shrink it down, couldn't you use MactheRipper to shrink it to fit on a standard dvd-r.

That is the problem so far that I am having. My project is a bit larger than the 4.7 max and IDVD refuses to even make the Disk Image. Says the project is too large. If I could make the image, I could use DVD2oneX and shrink it down to fit the DVD. I wonder if there is a way I am missing? So far nothing....Dennis
