Hi guys, long time follower...first time poster. Essentially, I'm in need of some help and have decided to come here for that. For starters... I have a Macbook Pro, latest and greatest versions of everything. I also have about a three year old sony handy cam..uses those minidv tapes. What I'm trying to do is this: We had a family member film our wedding two years ago and I'm looking to make this into a DVD to distribute for friends/family. What I've done is plugged the handy cam in and imported the entire video (60 mins) via fire wire. This then imported the entire thing as about 30 different clips as iMovie separated the clips individually as they were taken. I took all the clips and did a few edits and dragged them all up into the top area of iMovie. I then exported or "Shared" as iMovie calls it into the "Large" format to the media browser. Fine and dandy, simple to do. Now, I imported that single video into iDVD and created the titles/chapters and what not and burned it to DVD. The quality...kinda blurry. It wasnt distorted or anything, but it was a little blurry...almost compressed looking. Ok, this is where I need help...what have I done wrong? Did I import from the camera incorrectly? Was I wrong for "sharing" it into the media browser? (default codec is h.264 isnt it?) Should I have exported via quicktime into a much BETTER codec with like...no compression? Help? Thanks guy!
