Pinnacle Studio V8 Rendering Time

I am fairly new to Video Editing and am currently having a problem with Rendering time.
I am trying to archive my F1 Grand Prix VCR Videos to DVD, I am using a Dazzle DVCII to read the footage onto my hard drive, and then using Pinnacle Studio 8 to menu the footage before writing to DVD.
On Thursday evening I started the Make Movie Process to write to DVD and as of now (Sunday) Studio 8 is still Rendering.
The file size for output is 3850mb (3.8GB) with 157minutes of footage (Best Quality on Disc selected with MPEG Audio).
So my questions are as follows -

* Should it take this long to Render?
* Is there a quicker way of achieving what I`m looking for?
* Am I doing something wrong?

System Spec as follows -

AMD 1000GHZ Processor
30GB Boot Drive
60GB Storage Drive
256mb Ram
Pioneer AO3 DVD Writer

Any help would be really appreciated.

you might be better off downloading the ulead dvd workshop demo ( or finding it on a magazine cd/dvd).
then use that to create the dv menus etc, and if the footage captured by dazzle dvcii is dvd compliant , set the process to not redo compliant footage and that should be a lot faster than studio.

157 minutes is (in my mind)pushing dvd to the limit , i usually max out at 90 minutes of 6000kbs or just over 60 minutes at 8000kbs.(and this may account for the time it is taking to re-render.

Thanks for that Gary,
I was using P/St Vers8 as it allows Motion Menu`s, having never used Ulead dvd Workshop does this give the same facility?

The dazzle Unit creates either MPEG1 or MPEG2 files, but these still have to be created into DVD compliant files, even with using the supplied software (DVDit), so I guess even with the Ulead software I`ll still need to render the files?
