    Hi, I am planning to filming an amateur film on a DSLR, I am a novice but I want the film to be the best HD quality for projection.
    What is the best format for me to film it in and is there anything that I need to know while editing in Imovie to make it projectable? any help would be great. Many thanks Matt

    In general shooting in a multiple of the projected resolution and then downscaling will yield the best results. So for HD (1080x1920) you should shoot in UHD, aka video 4K (2160x3840). Next would be fps. If trying to reproduce a traditional film look then 24Hz. If you want more of a realistic and detailed (like for fast action) look then go 60Hz.

    4K is best but most DSLR's can only support 1080P.

    No. Just import and edit as required, then either add to your iMovie Theatre or Share to File at the resolution you want.
