JW actually this is incorrect. These Cams record Widescreen by cropping the pic and using less pixels. True Anamorphic recording squeezes the picture into a standard 4:3 CCD and expands correctly on a widescreen TV. Century Optics sells a Anamorphic Lens for many Cams but it's like $800 itself so that's a testament to how difficult it is. The problem really is Zooming and probably a few other issues. We'll be waiting a while for Consumer Anamorphic Cams.Originally posted by JW Pepper
Are you kidding, nearly all camcorders in Europe record in 16x9 anamorphic. I have two, one a Sony PC9 about 2 years old and another Hi8 which is at least 6 years old!
I have been waiting for 16x9 support since iDVD came out. All the DVD's I burn are burnt in the wrong format and I have to manually force my TV to change aspect ratios
This problem is a typical US centric problem and Apple did not look at the big picture. Europeans need 16x9 support almost before anything else. I know everyine wants chapters, but for US iDVD is almost useless without 16x9 support.
What a worthless post. So he makes a comment concerning the status of an app mention in the topic? And you rag on him? That's mature.Originally posted by MacAztec
Boosting post count? Raising old threads? Worthless posting?!?
And where did you get the idea about iMovie 3?
