"Can't I loathe both sides equally? Where's the 'they can ALL go to hell' booth? I want to volunteer!"
Meanwhile, I'm playing around with the "Export" settings in iMovie and trying to find a way to end up with an MPEG-4 file that is roughly equivalent to what iDVD is putting on the discs (in terms of size and quality) and I haven't found the right setting yet. I wonder what frame rate iDVD uses? Anything less than 30 (well, 24 and 15) has really visible field-splitting artifacts that don't show up in the DVD version; but those files are around 150% the size as they should be. (I think I should be ending up with roughly 53MB/minute, right? Because a DVD is 4.7GB, and iDVD writes 90 minutes max?) An export quality setting of "High" (75%?) seems ok, but "Medium" is crap. I'm using the default key frame rate of 90, and turned off data rate limit.
