DVD - DVD-r

What you need is DVD2onex, an amazing program.
http://www.dvd2one.com
It transcodes the dvd to your specified file size in about half an hour, and looks great. Really the only software to use for working with dvd folders.
For more information on this topic you could check out the mac video forum at:

Here is a very thorough tutorial, choose the beginner one:

Thanks! Now, to be cheap, I wonder if there is less expensive program than this one. Its $50 plus shipping. And there's no indications about what sort of arifcats/quality it creates and no pressure to optimize these like in open source.

Believe me, DVD2One is WELL worth the money! Quality is amazing unless you push it too hard (like trying to fit two 8gig DVDs on one 4gig DVD-R - still watcheable by the way but obviously not as good as the original).

Dvd20nex is shareware so you can download it from their page and try it out. It will process the first 30 minutes of your movie exactly like it does the full thing so you can see the quality for yourself. Then if you decide to buy it you are just paying for the serial number that you enter from the program.
I'd give it a try and see what you think.
The development of this was pretty amazing, this program existed for windows first. Then under pressure from the mac community, especially those at the dvdrhelp.com forums, the developer bought a g4 and wrote it for the mac also. He was able to put out a fully working program for os x in just a matter of weeks. If you were trying to do what this program does before it came out, you needed several different programs and many many hours of waiting for all the different steps to complete.
