    Aspect Ratio problem in iMovie
    I created a slideshow in iMovie with the aspect ratio of 16:9 Widescreen, however, when I export it as both a medium and large size file, it leaves me with Pillarboxes on the right and left hand side. They are m4v files, playing in iTunes, but I don't understand why I have pillarboxes instead of widescreen black on top and bottom....

    ...i want to burn to dvd, but I don't want these pillars. Any thoughts or suggestions as to why its playing like that when I have the right aspect ratio?

    What version of iMovie?

    My iMovie Export Guide might help you by using the advanced export feature.

    I'm trying the Export using QuickTime (as stated in your Export Guide), and I played around with some of the options in there....will see if this works and will report back. Thanks for the link...
