    I've just used iMovie for the first time with my Flip Mino HD, which records in 720p. I've made about half a dozen movies that have worked fine in 720p. However, on one of them when I try to finalize it, it comes up that it is creating in 1080p and will taken 30 hours to process! I've had a play and can't see anything obvious to stop it trying to process it at 1080p instead of 720p.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I didn't think that you could create a higher resolution version of the video that you imported. You don't have to Finalise a Project. All that does is create every version of your Project that can be created. You can just Share or export as you wish.

    Thanks for that :) I noticed the export option and wondered what the difference was! I'll see what it does if I just export it. Cheers
