I'm such an idiot, you guys. I never thought of using the Sonic program my new computer came with. I've been using it to burn data discs and obviously since the comp came with a DVD burner, it comes with a program to MAKE DVDs.

uh, now that you say that, I just realized I could be using iDVD to convert, instead of using some program with a watermark. I almost paid $40 to get rid of the watermark.

<----Idiot.

Well, I did find an issue with the program my laptop came with. It's Sonic My DVD. I load it up, tell it to import a video file, point it to the file, and it imports it. Everything is exactly how I want (wide screen fit to screen) except that the video file I have is 850MB and when I import it, Sonic says the DVD size is over 11GB!!! Sonic gives you a menu screen that plays a little song and lets you add chapters, but how can 850MB + a few images and one mp3 = 11.3GB? It won't let me select the "fit to DVD" filesize option because I have pay for the deluxe edition. The only option that made the DVD less than 4GB was the "VHS" option. So I made the DVD and everything is exactly what I want as far as screen ratio, chapters, menu, but the video is kinda yucky since it compressed it or something.

I don't get what I'm doing wrong. Is it b/c I start with an avi file, not a ripped DVD?

I had the same problem wih iMovie on the mac. It took 4 hours to import 2 and half hours of video, ended up eing 11GBs, compressed to 5GB and looked like shit when done. I give up. I'll jsut use the program I downloaded and watch things with the watermark popping in and out.

I had terrible success using iMovie as well. We were using it for a school project that involved some video we taped with a DVR. We ended up just hooking the DVR to a VCR, pushing play, and recording our videos onto a VHS tape. It took less than an hour and the quality was far better than whatever iMovie ended up spitting out after 6 hours of the computer sitting frozen with a spinning pinwheel.

Try to convert to mpeg first with a converter- something like:
