9 hours??!
Twice the length of a cinema epic?
How are you expecting to distribute it?
iDVD encoding settings:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iDVD/7.0/en/11417.html
Short version:
Best Performance is for videos of up to 60 minutes
Best Quality is for videos of up to 120 minutes
Professional Quality is also for up to 120 minutes but even higher quality (and takes much longer)
That was for single-layer DVDs. Double these numbers for dual-layer DVDs.
Professional Quality: The Professional Quality option uses advanced technology to encode your video, resulting in the best quality of video possible on your burned DVD. You can select this option regardless of your project’s duration (up to 2 hours of video for a single-layer disc and 4 hours for a double-layer disc). Because Professional Quality encoding is time-consuming (requiring about twice as much time to encode a project as the High Quality option, for example) choose it only if you are not concerned abo
In both cases the maximum length includes titles, transitions and effects etc. Allow about 15 minutes for these.
You can use the amount of video in your project as a rough determination of which method to choose. If your project has an hour or less of video (for a single-layer disc), choose Best Performance. If it has between 1 and 2 hours of video (for a single-layer disc), choose High Quality. If you want the best possible encoding quality for projects that are up to 2 hours (for a single-layer disc), choose Professional Quality. This option takes about twice as long as the High Quality option, so select it only if time is not an issue for you.
Use the Capacity meter in the Project Info window (choose Project > Project Info) to determine how many minutes of video your project contains.
NOTE: With the Best Performance setting, you can turn background encoding off by choosing Advanced > “Encode in Background.” The checkmark is removed to show it’s no longer selected. Turning off background encoding can help performance if your system seems sluggish.
And whilst checking these settings in iDVD Preferences, make sure that the settings for NTSC/PAL and DV/DV Widescreen are also what you want.

  • I want to buy a book I created in iPhoto.  I want to leave blank some spaces in the photo layout, but the app won't let me "buy the book" unless all the layout spaces are filled.

    That is correct - you must have a photo in every photo frame to order

  • IMovie won't let me export my video HELP PLEASE QUICK

    So I have the iPad 3, 64gb Wifi + Cellular and I have iMovie on my iPad. So I've made a 30 second video, with no music and I clicked to export it on my camera roll and it's said "An Error Occurred During Export" or something along the lines,and so I tried doing that with the other options, Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube and all said they could not export. All the footage was taken on my iPad and its not working. I then downloaded another app and it did the same thing. I'm so frustrated. Yes I have gone through my privacy settings and turned on iMovie it was already on. Yes I have done everything everyone else has done, but this is not working. can someone please help me !!!!.

    Hello RamoziummOxide,
    Thank you for posting in the Apple Support Communities.  I would also be concerned if I could not export my project I made in iMovie.  You have done several good troubleshooting steps.  At this point, I would troubleshoot the iMovie app in general:
    iOS: Troubleshooting applications purchased from the App Store
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1702
    There are a couple of things to keep in mind regarding that article.  Step 4 guides in you restarting the application, but I would quit any open application at that point.  Also step 6 states to reinstall the application, but before you do that, you will want to backup the content of iMovie to iTunes before you do that because your movie will be deleted if you delete the application.  I would skip this step if you are not able to export to iTunes.  You can find steps to export your movie to iTunes here:
    Send to iTunes

    I hope this helps!  I know how much time and work goes into iMovie projects.

  • HT1589 I hold shift & it won't let me open the library I select. Help!

    I hold shift, it asks me if I want to open or create a new library. I click open. I click on my daughters library. It opens it further instead of just opening itunes. Than I try to click on media & open, it opens it further. It doesn't let me open the library. It keeps opening the previous library I had open which is my husbands. It is NOT child appropriate, so please HELP!! My daughter really wants a movie we have a digital copy of but I can't get it on her ipod since it is in her library.

    There is no itunes for Android

  • IMovie isn't autosaving my events/movies and won't let me export the file. How can I ensure my projects aren't deleted if I can't manually save?

    I created a movie w/ no theme and added my raw footage to it. I edited and was ready to export but wouldn't let me share the file. When I tried to export to a file, in the "Theater" view the progress bar stayed empty and there were no files created in the target folder.
    I closed iMovie (since it should auto-save my work) to try again and when I re-opened iMovie (took a couple tries, as it froze the first time I opened it) there was no movie. No trace of any of the work I had done, other than the raw imported footage.
    Two questions:
    1) Why isn't iMovie autosaving the movie?
    2) Why wasn't I able to export it?

    What exactly is the error you get?
    How are you attempting this copy?
    There's almost certainly a way to accomplish what you want to do (probably best from the terminal possibly copying the entire user dir and fixing up permissions, etc.) but I'm not sure you will end up with the results you want.  There are plists in the preferences dir that you probably don't want to copy over (e.g., many of the com.apple.* prefererences).  And many apps also create more than just plists.  There may be stuff in Application Support, LaunchAgents, Internet Plug-Ins, etc.).  And this would be stuff you do want to copy.  Bottom line is it is not a trivial exercise which is probably why the system is slapping your hands for even attempting it

  • IMovie won't let me use the video I want

    I have several movies that I am using for a project and iMovie is allowing me to use some of the movies but not all of them. When I looked at the info in all of  them, the only difference between them is that the ones that don't work have Codec: Text. Not sure if that means anything, but I really need these videos.

    IMovie cannot edit clips with text tracks. The solution would be to open them in QuickTime Pro and delete the text tracks.

    Try a device reset. If that doesn't help, you should take your device to an Apple Store for a free evaluation.
    Device Reset (won't affect settings/data/music/apps/etc)
    1. Press and hold (& continue to hold) BOTH the Sleep/Wake button & the Home button.
    2. Continue to hold BOTH (ignoring any other messages that may show) until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
    3. Release BOTH buttons when you see the Apple logo and allow the device to boot normally.

  • What's a good video app to use? I have iPhoto and iMovie, but they won't let me email a video. I also want to be able to make a dvd of my home movies. Any suggestions?

    What's a good video app to use? I have iPhoto and iMovie, but it these wont let me do certain things, such as email a video. I also want to be able to make a dvd of my home movies. Any suggestions?

    Unless you want a new computer, forget about AVCHD. It requires too much muscle to edit comfortably on anything but the fastest computer.
    What camera is nice, depends on your budget. Formats that are easy to edit are HDV, DVCProHD (P2) and XDCAM. In the consumer range you could look at the Canon HV40 or XH-A1s, in the prosumer range look at the Panasonic AG-HPX170, Canon XH-H1s, JVC GY-ND250 or Sony HVR Z5 or Z7 and all Sony XDCAM cameras, especially the EX1 and EX3. In the professional range look at the Sony PDW-F355 or upward.

  • HT1349 why are my pictures and videos from 4s iphone when downloaded sideways and the videos too?  Please help with feedback

    Ok who has been having problems everytime you want to download your videos and pictures they download sideways and videos too, please help

    The photos and videos are not imported that way. The problem lies with whatever photo/video viewing software you are using with Windoze which is ignoring or not recognizing the photo/video orientation info which is included with the photo/video EXIF data by the iPhone.
    I've never had this problem but I use a Mac which doesn't ignore photo/video orientation info included with photo/video EXIF data.

  • I had to change my password, and need to change my security questions, as they are wrong. Apple won't let me change the security questions unless I answer the old ones, which I cannot do. Suggestions please for how I can change my security questions.

    I had to change my password and did so succesfully, but cannot change my original security questios. To make new security questions, Apple wants me to answer my old security questions, which I cannot do to their satisfaction, as my answers do not match their answers on file. Is there a way to change my security questions without being able to answer my orignal questions first?

    Why not? If you're the owner then you should know your own question/answer combination as you created them.
