    I have no clue why when I export a HD movie that it comes out looking like crap. The .mov file I exported from motion is saved as HD 1080i60.

    Can someone please please please tell me the way to set up idvd so I can export this video and make it look sexy.

    Thank you.

    This may be a stupid question, but you do realize that iDVD only outputs Standard definition video, right? It's I"DVD", not iBlueRay :)

    were you using the Hi-Def settings in DVD SP? because those will not play in a standard DVD player...

    iDVD and DVD SP don't do a great job of compressing to MPEG2... don't expect too much from them. Compressor does a better job, but don't expect miracles. You're essentially throwing out 85% of your resolution and compressing the hell out of it.
