    I'm on a Mac with latest Snow Leopard and latest iMovie and iDVD. When I import an hi rez quicktime movie into iMove 4GB's and export it with no compression and take it into iDVD. Some place it gets compressed and the result has a massive loss of resolution and sharpness also color is a bit flat. Please help. If I do a "get info on the final DVD it's like 244MB. Please help.
    Thank You

    Are you exporting it and then putting it in iDVD, or Sharing to iDVD from iMovie's share menu? If you are exporting it first, then it gets compressed again, regardless of the settings that you choose, hence the loss in quality.
