    I'm somewhat new to iDVD since I don't have a Superdrive (I have an
    external burner) and have only been able to use it since iDVD 5 came
    out and you can save as a disc image. My problem is I have an iBook
    with a 30 gig drive. 10-15 are taken up with the OS, my apps, and my
    files, which leaves only 15-20 for iMovie and iDVD. I want to make
    hour and a half long DVDs, but of course the DV needed to do that is
    much much larger than the paltry 15 gigs I have available (especially
    cosidering I need 4.5 for the DVD image). I'm considering getting an
    external HD, but for now is it possible to have iDVD encode my movies
    and save the mpeg version of them so I can throw away the original
    iMovie projects, make new iMovie projects, and then send those to iDVD
    for inclusion on the same DVD? I hope I'm being clear enough.
