    I want to use iMovie, but whenever I import my HD image, it makes the quality worse, and the radial gradient looks horrible. Here is the image I'm trying to use: http://i342.photobucket.com/albums/o415/basstone97/2j3fkus.png

    here is what it looks like once imported into iMovie '09: http://i342.photobucket.com/albums/o415/basstone97/Picture1-2.png

    Is there a plugin for iMovie to fix this or something? I would you Final Cut, but my computer is slow enough, and adding heavy video-editing applications like that would not be good. Especially since I've had to replace my hard drive twice in the past year.

    Please, can anyone help? I've been looking everywhere!

    Real-time previews are compressed/downscaled/etc in order to make the "real-time" bit possible, and are not indicative of the final output.

    Have you checked the settings of iMovie?

    And Final Cut and Avid are not more demanding than iMovie, as they are simpler, in my eyes at least.

    Final Cut's interface is definitely simpler, but iMovie is so much easier to use, at least for me.
