    iMovie HD exporting and maintaining picture quality
    Hi all,

    I'm a complete novice to videos and could really use some advice. I've used iMovie HD to create a short movie of around 2.5 mins. I want to upload it to a public Photobucket folder.

    I've been exporting it using 'expert settings' to mp4 but the end quality bad and really pixellated. As I mentioned, I am a complete novice, so would be really grateful if anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it.

    Thank you for any help you can give.

    Can't say what you're doing wrong. If the original is good quality, you should be able to get a good quality output file. Check out my iMovie Export guide.

    Also, find the Photobucket expectations and requirements. Remember too, that these sites re-compress what you give them, so you want to upload the best quality that you can. Compare your output file to their result. If yours is high quality, then the problem is on their end.

    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.
