iMovie 06 export to DV looks bad
I have iMovie 06 and was exporting my movies using both mp4 and h.264 compression and they looked fine. Then I went to burn those to a DVD in iDVD and of course they looked terrible. So I am going back and exporting from iMovie 06 all my movies at full DV quality and am noticing they look worse than the h.264 .mov files despite large bit rates/file sizes.
First I tried DV in .dv containers and they looked jagged like some I have seen on here with interlacing problems. So then I tried DV to .mov container and then the jagged lines went away but now the movies are too soft, blurred in fact. File sizes are about the same as .dv, but lets just say the preview image while editing in iMovie looks better than these exports.
It is odd that it is only DV footage though. Note, the videos look bad in exporting different sources of video. Some is from camera, some from A/V converter, some DVD rips, all look bad. Could something be wrong with iMovie or QT components? I have already reloaded iMovie in the past due to stability issues, which are gone now. If you need photos of clips to compare let me know.
Thanks in advance
