    Widescreen footage goes 4:3 in iDVD
    I have Mac OS X 10.5.8 with Leopard and Final Cut Xpress 4.0.1.

    I have DV footage shot widescreen which I downloaded to a USB external hard drive -also using it as scratch disc.
    I have settings in FCX DV - PAL Anamorphic.
    Have edited material which all looks grand and widescreen in canvas.
    Then exported to Quicktime movie.
    When I play this back in FCX it goes to 4:3 aspect in viewer.

    If I move to create it in iDVD with a widescreen selected theme
    then the theme opens as a widescreen menu and when the
    content is selected in plays back as 4:3 on screen.

    I have trashed my prefs dont know what else to try...

    Ta very much for any suggestions - eyetry

    At last I found an answer to this.
    Funny how you look hard but never find things when you are under pressure.

    Check out solution at
    iDVD: DV widescreen 16:9 workflow from Final Cut Pro

    Cheers
