I'm creating a slide show in iMovie then exporting it to iDVD to burn to disc, I have used the internal 'ken burns effects' to pan and move the shots and used some transpose effects to link the images.

It runs smoothly in iMovie but when I burn to DVD the shots judder and don't run smoothly which is a pretty disappointing result, is there any thing I can do to stop this?

It's like it has missed a few frames out in each transition and makes it look jumpy.

I have upped the frames per minute to 28 to no effect any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Make The motion in the ken burn's may be too much, particularly with zooming. I've done this several times, with no problem. I prefer to use iPhoto, then make the ken-burn's effects custom, then export to iMovie, add music, titles, video clips, etc., then export the whole thing to iDVD. Haven't had a problem with doing it this way.

I have some examples on my website in my signature.

QUOTE Thanks
