I guess with i-movie HD (6) it must be possible to create the movie in widescreen as it gives you the option to have it in widescreen when you open up i-DVD.

But how?

When you create the new movie project, you have a choose of formats:

DV
DV Widescreen
HDV 1080i
HDV 720p
MPEG-4
iSight

I guess DV Widescreen would be the one, it's for a 1min opening of a property website.

Ok, how do I set the format after opening i-Movie HD and can it be set half way through making the movie or when it has been made?

Do I need to go to PREFERENCES and click auto pillarboxing/letterboxing BEFORE I import the footage, or can i do it after?

Mine is set. I don't remember setting it. It may be automatic when you select DV Widescreen.
