[Ted Joyce]"What is the best method within Media 100i for exporting a long range (over 1 hour)for DVD authoring and still maintain the chapter points and chapter names? "
Export from Media 100 i as a by-ref file with chapter marks and encode with BitVice. Then your Chapter Marks with names will show up in DVDSP.
[Ted Joyce]"Is the software codec worth installing and using if one only uses M100 & Commotion (for occational retouching)?"
[Ted Joyce]"Is Mac OS 10.4.1 stable for using M100 with? "
Yes for Media 100 HD, and probably also for Media 100 i, but not certified for Media 100 i.
