  4. Because of the **encoded files** iDVD makes from the source files that
    make the result playable on a DVD player.

    If you're sure you will never make another change you should make a disc
    image and you can delete everything but if you ever need to make a
    change, iDVD will look for the source files and, if it can't find them,
    you're outta luck.

    From the Help file...
    When you add a movie or picture to your iDVD project, the project
    contains a reference to the location of the file on your hard disk, not
    the actual movie or picture file. If you delete or move the file from
    its original location, your iDVD project can no longer access it. Don't
    delete or move files you add to your iDVD project until after you're
    sure you won't be editing or changing the project.

    Because of the encoded files might be a little more clear.

    Nobody had more of a "feel good" platform than Dave Smilin' Balderstone
    in Winnipeg-Ft. Garry in 1980. I wonder why he only got 1% of the vote?
