    Im using iMovie 09 in Snow Leopard

    When I finish editing something, and I want to publish/share the movie, I have 2 options: "Share Movie" and "Share using Quicktime"

    So, whats the diference between them? Is one quality better? More or less time to publisc the movie? GB size?

    Any help is apreciated, thanks!

    If you Share...Export Movie, you get a drop down box with options to export at various sizes, assuming that your Project is capable of producing those size formats. The resulting file is an m4v.

    If you Export to Quicktime and look at all the Settings and Options you get a much larger choice as to how you can export.

    The time taken to export and the resulting file size will depend on which one you choose.
