imovie HD to view on PC

Created imovie but stumped on what format to save as to be viewable on PC whilst retaining high quality? HELP! Exported it to iDVD and burned from this to DVD disc, but when viewed on PC or DVD player, quality of images reduced and text significantly reduced. Tried to export from iMovie as a quicktime, no better and then an MPEG which was hideous, even when viewed back on the mac. Any ideas?

If you know the PC has QuickTime, then export as a QuickTime at the native size of the edit with a decent data rate. See my iMovie Export Guide.
You might also try "Movie to AVI" with a DV codec which will likey be a large file, or "Movie to MP4". There are several variants of MP4 to try though and frankly Microsoft doesn't play well with this.
I would go with a QuickTime file using the H.264 video codec and ACC audio codec and simply tell the PC user to load QuickTime.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
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.
