    Hi guys, I have a new panasonic HD camera that records full HD (HDC-TM200-K). What format do you recommend I import movies into iMovie? Full or the large options. Your thoughts?...

    Full.

    As you can see in the following picture


    the resolution of Large is only a quarter of the full HD resolution, to save storage.

    If you have enough GBs, then don't worry, and take the full resolution.

    It will be more taxing to your CPU, but you will have no quality loss.

    Only if you want to export it to YouTube or some other video watching service, the Large setting will do fine.
