Cant get slow enough to burn?

Im uysing Verbatim dvd-r's and burning a short film using Toast 6. I run it at 1x and it stops about half way saying its getting the info to fast or something and that I should slow down the burning speed...but you cant get slower than 1x, am I missing something here?
Thanks
Ryan

Let's start a little simpler, are you making a data DVD-R or are you trying to burn an mpg2 DVD-R to play on a DVD player and watch on your TV?

Yes as a dvd, I was able to successfully burn it as a data dvd but when I had finished the film and had it made into a quicktime movie I was using the video function to burn it to dvd to use on dvd players.

If you're using Toast, I think there is a quality setting in the Video Settings. Try lowering the quality.

Yes use iDVD if you don't have DVDSP to do your DVD authoring.
At least then you can make some nice menus to interact with when you play it in your DVD player.

I do have dvdSP and have transfered a quicktime FCP version to it. Will I have better luck burning it from there once I get the rest of the bugs out of the menu?

Hello Ryan,

What menu bugs are you referring to?

I think you should start with iDVD first to reduce the amount of effort needed to author on DVDSP.

cheers,
Peter

Use the quicktime version of your exported movie if you are going to finish it in iDVD

or,

Exporting out of FCP as an MPEG2 if you are going to author it in DVDSP.

But authoring in iDVD is much easier if you want to burn a DVD asap with little effort, but if you author it in DVDSP it can look more "Pro".

No Im not in a huge hurry to get it done...Id rather just have a nice dvd.
As far as exporting it, ive been choosing export>quicktime movie...> then I have been using those in DVDSP. Is this going to give me a good quality video? Can I make it better by exporting it in a different fashion?

By bugs I just meant things I didnt know how to use yet. I had just recently purchased DVDSP and am still working things out, still learning.
