I have old vhs videos. How can I retain the best quality picture for dvd burning, after editing in imovie 11?

With difficulty. You'll probably lose resolution in the transfer, iMovie import/edit/share process and then dvd resolution is only 720x480/576 anyway. Share from iMovie to file at a resolution closest to that of the final dvd is probably best.

Thank you MightyGem for responding. Is there other editing software that doesn't cause so much
loss of picture quality?

You could try Adobe Premier Elements at £85/$100 or Apple's Final Cut at £199/$300, but it's not so much the software as the conversion that your footage goes through at the various stages, plus VHS resolution is pretty poor to begin with.
