in imovie 06 HD-are there chapter marker limits?
I am editing a 3 hour movie, that will have just over 100 chapters. Is there a limit as to how many chapter markers iMovie and IDVD will let you have (before I start making all of the chapters)?

You can only have 99 chapters in a DVD. This is a limitation of the DVD specification.

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: “Nothing is impossible. Not if you can imagine it. That’s what being a scientist is all about.”
Cubert J. Farnsworth: “No, that’s what being a magical elf is all about.”

You might want to reconsider the number of chapters because you can only have 6 per menu page. 100 chapters will be a lot to navigate. I also emailed the PDF version of the iDVD manual to you.

Thank you both. I agree-it is a lot to navigate-but my client wants it that way. Of course if I am limited to 99, I will need to convince him otherwise.

Thank you both for your help!
