iDVD "There was an error during movie encoding"

Arrrgh!

Brand new i7 iMac, latest OSX updates, have been trying to do something incredibly simple...burn a DVD with iDVD!
The file is a .mp4 rendered from Adobe Media Encoder. I tried different sizes, different formats, same result.
Finally got a tip on the 2nd thread..

It seems you MUST go thru iMovie. The .mp4 was originally exported via Premiere from Adobe Media Encoder.
I dragged the .mp4 into a new iMovie project and then 'shared' it with iDVD.

But why the heck can't iDVD give you a more descriptive error message....?

Local is the new global

Hey, friend. I had the same problem last night. Try this:

I recreated all the files using the Quick Time codec (.mov) files. It worked like a charm.

I also had problems rendering the Menu files. It was a problem on the DVD theme track muted. Unmute it and voila!

Hope it helps you!
