1 hour 10 minutes should fit, the limit is 90 minutes and it changes on the fly. Oddly, I have been given that same error when there is not enough Hard Disk space left. I was going crazy looking for a 90 minute check box when I just happened to notice I was almost out of disk space. That might be what is wrong.

You may be better off looking at a new system. My want list to even run FCP 3 is a minimum of 512mb Ram, and 80gig external FireWire Hard Drive. The OS will need to be updated from 9.0.4 to 9.2.2. The updates are a free download from the Apple site. The G3 processor wil not do Real Time effects and the 15 inch screen is very confining. I really don't think there is much in the way of processor upgrades for iMacs.

I think it is something like 14 watts, but that spec may have changed with the newer models.

Thanks gentlemen for your suggestions. I think the reason might be the 60 minute time limit as I am using version 1. I am waiting for "Jaguar" to be available to upgrade to the next version of iDVD. There is no upgrade for OS 10 (to Jaguar) if I were to buy the old version now. Jaguar will be the same price.

Believe it or not, I have "DVD Pro" which would solve all of my problems but I can't figure it out. The instruction booklet that comes with it has my head spinning. It is not written for those in a hurry to learn... which is why I use iDVD.

If I only had some templates... smile.

thanks again.

Mark, Jeff, thanks: I'm checking out the Dr.Bott & Griffin Tech sites as I write this.
More from me once I have some kind of an audio solution worked out: I asked about the Apple Pro speakers because the feedback I got was that they were too low-output to be of practical use in editing. [And, damn, but they're expensive! :-) ]
Does anyone have any comments on the choice of the Sony DVE 900 E Video Walkman as a VTR option for editing (playback/print to tape)? It seems to be the lowest cost Mini DV solution for a dedicated VTR - but it might be nice to have a choice of format sometimes. Do the DSR-11 and the DSR -20 play/record DVCAM?
Best,
Ram

Oops, to answer my own question, the DSR-11 and DSR-20 do indeed play and record DVCAM, according to their specs. But the DV-D 1000 Sony video walkman seems to be a lot cheaper, with an S-Video and composite throughput to boot.
Can anyone tell me whether the Video Walkman can be used via firewire to connect an external broadcast monitor?
Best,
Ram

Pioneer A04 and iDVD

Here is some info that many may be interested in :

Until a few days ago if you wanted to burn a dvd with your mac the options were expensive.* Buy a mac with a superdrive, or buy an external drive and DVD Studio Pro.* iDVD would not work with an external drive (even the identical pioneer A04 drive) because the enabler was different than that of the superdrive.

On August 2nd Other World Computing started selling the pioneer A04 with the correct enabler for iDVD 2.1 and OSX for $400.* What this means is that for $400 (and a copy of iDVD 2.1) you can be authoring DVD's on your current firewire enabled mac.

Here is the link to a review of the drive and enabler:

Hope you find this interesting.

Yeah, I read all that latest, greatest stuff coming out of Finland about the hig pass filter :) :)

Seriously, I think he really meant band-pass filter. The description Adrian gave is correct. Telephones, interestingly enough, don't pass anything above about 3Khz or below about 1Khz.

That's really cool! Thanks for the info. How does one go about downloading iDVD 2.1? Is it a free download somewhere? I was always under the impression that you could only get it with new Macs.

Well, sort of. iDVD is an upgrade to 2.0 and 2.0 comes with OS X 10.1 etc. I think you can get 2.1 on a CD for 20$ or the download is free. It will come with OS X 10.2 in a few weeks. I would wait until 10.2 in case Apple changes the enabler. They weren't happy about a company bundling A04 with the eMac and shut down that part of their operation.

I have 10.1 (CD) and iDVD didn't come with it, unless I am just looking in the wrong place. Is iDVD OS X only?

iDVD v2.x is MacOS X only. iDVD versions of 1.x are OS 9 compatible, but can only burn 60 DVDs. My Mac came out before version 2, so I had to buy the $20 CD to get the new version. They only have patches that you can download because they added tutorials to version 2 that take up 400MB of disk space, and this way they make a little money. (at least, this used to be the only way to upgrade to version 2) I don't know if the system disk for OS 10.1 has iDVD on it...

Joe,

I could have sworn the CD for 10.1 had iDVD on it. I remember deleting it, because I have DVD SP and had no use for it. I'm sure it's part of the pkg. and gets installed with everything else. I'll look for my disc and let you know or maybe somebody else here knows for sure. If you go to the Apple Store the description for the CD says it's an upgrade.
