    I've been using an older version of Imovie (5?) on my old iMac G5 for years, but have decided to try to make my next movie on my MacBook. I have both iMovie '08 and '06. Whichever one I try to use, I get a red tint on both pictures and video. The pictures are jpg's taken with a DSLR, which I'm either loading directly from the finder or using "import" to place, since I don't use iPhoto. The video files are .mp4. Apparently, there is a bug resulting in red tint on imported bitmaps, but I am not using bitmaps. I can correct the problem by reducing the red gain on individual media, but it's very frustrating. Anyone else run into this issue? Will post screen shots if desired.

    I am having the same problem

    I am using iLife'11 and using iDVD for the first time. I had created slideshow movies with aperture and the output from that looks great. When i made a DVD with iDVD the first thing I noticed when playing the DVD back on my tv was that all of the faces looked pretty red. I thought perhaps that the colors on my mac book pro's screen were incorrectly calibrated, and therefore i incorrectly adjusted the color temp on my photos.

    I played the iDVD movie back on my MBP and noticed the same red tint. So i went back to the source file (aperture slideshow exported to a .mov file and played it. The colors were fine.

    Now I dont know what to do to correct this in iDVD.

    Any info would be helpful.

    Thank you,
