Hi all, Just completed my first attempt at creating an iDVD slide show (working on a G5 with all the updates). No problems with the burning process itself; 30 minutes to burn 650M of pics plus 6-8 pieces of accompanying music. The problem: the picture quality of the slideshow is POOR. Looks like the program used thumbnail-size pics and enlarged them to full-screen--not quite that bad, but a distinct loss of image quality. The pics used for the slide show are different sizes, but generally around 4000x2600 @ 300ppi, JPGs with no profiles. I simply imported to iDVD the original JPGs from iPhoto, no resizing. Used Maxell DVD-R, 8x. Some of the preferences (relevant ones?) are set as follows: encoder settings=best performance; video standard=NTSC; always scale slides to TV safe area (checked). What's the problem? Thanks in advance for all responses.
