    Alright I am having trouble importing 16:9 Widescreen into iMovie 6. Everytime I try to import it, iMovie makes it into 4:3. I have my settings set to DV Widescreen. Help much appreciated.

    Is the camera exporting it as 16:9 or 4:3? Some cameras will convert 16:9 to 4:3 before it sends it to the computer.

    This might be the trick. It's been a while since I used iMovie 6, but I know there is a setting to tell it the imported video is widescreen.
