I have a Sony TRV33E (which I know is not the newest bit of kit on the market now, but it still produces good movies). I was previously a PC owner and always got an excellent result after editing the family holiday videos each year. Just changed to brand new iMac and used iMovie 08 to edit this year's video ...it's a disaster! Horribly blurry - unwatchable. The unedited clips play perfectly clearly directly from the camcorder onto my TV but I now realise (having spent hours editing things) that the quality of clips imported into iMovie is terrible. Have read some related posts elsewhere, I have a horrible feeling I'm completely stuffed! Something to do with iMovie importing at one size, then resizing to edit then downsizing again to export?? Have I understood that correctly? Is there anyway round this or is the short answer that iMovie is just not going to work for me and I've wasted a lot of time (and money!)?!! Thanks in advance for any ideas. I'm not a real techie, so please go easy on me with the explanations!
