Hey guys, I'm having a problem with iDVD '08. When I first start making a project, I choose 16:9 format because that's what my video was filmed in. So the main menu is in 16:9, but when I go to the actual video, it has made the video 4:3, so everything is stretched, etc.... What's the problem here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you used imovie 08 to assembly the clips, it seems that a 16:9 is not fully supported in imovie 08.

see all this thread on Apple discussion boards:

i think i pretty much got the problem resolved. i am just importing the video using imovie, then exporting it as a quicktime file. it works just fine.

Try using this program. I have used it before with FCP so I would think it would work. Anyways follow the directions and it should be a ton better and faster than the imovie route. Hopefully you have Quicktime pro because I think that is required if I remember right. Let me know if you try it out and how it works. Someone recommended it to me on here a while ago.

What program?

Diamond. It would be helpful if you told us the name of the program you are refering to, and perhaps provided us with a link.

I don't have QuickTime Pro, but I found out that I can just import the .dv files right into Final Cut, I don't have to export them or anything like that. Thanks for the help, but I think I got it figured out.
