    I'm not a professional, but I think you want to export to "Quicktime Movie".

    Under options/settings choose H.264, key frames = 24, auto data rate, whatever quality. Under options/size... not sure, maybe "HD 1920x1080 16:9".

    No idea on the sound settings. It's probably in the Wikipedia description of Blu-ray discs.

    You also need to figure out whether to interlace or de-interlace... that always confuses me.

    Has anyone else successfully edited in imovie 11 and burned to blu ray with great results?

    Also have another question, how do I know if I need to deinterlace my video?

    My camcorder records in 1080i.
