I'm a Mac noob and having adjustment issues.
1. I have a Sony DCR SR100 HDD Camcorder. Althought it records in mpeg2 it is compatible with iMovie 08 in that I can import directly from the camera.
Here is my problem, when I put the movie together, export to the media browser, and burn to iDVD, the video on the TV is lacking in quality. Seems a bit pixelated and not as clear as when I we using Adobe Premier on my PC.

I got streamclip and the Apple playback component so I can convert using that as well. Bottom line is that I want to burn all movies to DVD for the TV. Are there best settings I want to use for both import and export? Is there something I am doing wrong in iDVD?

I've got to run to go see DarkKnight so I'll start my question with those.
QUOTE Thanks

Perhaps tip 2 here will help. Use the appropriate NTSC export setting. I think 720x480.

To learn more about that export feature you can read my iMovie Export Guide.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
