    I videotaped a church musical in widescreen 16:9 on my digital video tape camcorder. I then recorded it onto a DVD in widescreen and want to get this video into iMovie. How is this done?

    I tried Handbrake but it seems to have squished it and turned the 16:9 aspect ratio into a forced 4:3. I wasn't able to get that into iMovie.

    I currently have the video on a DVD and need it in iMovie for editing. Can you help me??

    Thanks!

    There are different settings in Handbrake. On the bottom, click on "picture settings" to change the size.

    Is there a way to import the DVD straight into iMovie08?
