    Need some help with iDVD please. Just started using it.

    I've edited a film in Final Cut, and burnt to DVD using iDVD. It's all working fine when you play it back on a Mac (I've run it on two using OSX 10.4 and on one using OSX10.3) but when I play it on a DVD player (and an XBox360) and a TV, the film is cropped at the top, bottom and sides.

    The film was edited in Final Cut at DV Pal (5:4) and I've tried the 16:9 and 4:3 settings in iDVD. Am I missing something in iDVD?

    Please help!

    This may be a dumb question, but since your "location" is not entered, where are you located??

    The reason I ask is that you mentioned PAL, so while I am forced to assume that you are in an area of the world that uses PAL I am not sure. If you are in North America (and other areas) you would need to be using NTSC, so based on your odd sizing problems it makes me wonder.:confused:
