How do I export an iMovie file to Quicktime for iDVD
I have already imported and created movie myself using iMovie on my OS X and it would be great to keep it as stock footage except that its taking up a horrendous HDD space. So I want to export imovie to MP4 for iPod or quicktime for burning with iDVD.
Here is a tutorial on how to export imovie to other video format using iMovie：
“From the File menu in iMovie choose "Share." When the share list comes up choose Expert settings and hit Share. In the Save dialog box choose "Export Movie to MPEG-4" and then hit the Options button right next to the list. Go to the Video Format list and choose H.264. When you hit Ok and choose your location it will save a Quicktime movie in H.264 format.”
Incidentally, when I came to the Video Format list, H.264 was shadowed (as though, I cannot choose that option),not to mention quicktime option either.
Any suggestions on a good quality converter? Solution on can’t export to quicktime from imovie for idvd and how to correct imovie unable to export to quicktime error on mac. I'd prefer export out to/convert imovie projects to quicktime for iDVD.
