    Hi guys, been a while - again! Ive been so busy lately but right now dont have the time to talk!

    My final art piece is due in within a week and ive got a load of high quality video that I need to put together in iMovieHD 6.0.4

    My videos are 1500x1000px in dimension and whenever i import them and save them as quicktime from iMovie they get smaller in dimension and distorted! NOT GOOD!

    Anyone know how I can get around this!?

    Thanks guys,

    would appreciate quick replys!


    P.s. Hope you all had a good christmas!

    Not sure about iMovie as I've never used it, but it sounds like a setting in your sequence setting (as it's known in Final Cut). Try having a look at project or sequence or composition settings — there should be something which asks you what frame size you'd like to work in, which is probably defaulting to something other than 1000 x 1500 (which is a very odd frame size by the way).

    Having said all that, iMovie might not give you the option of a custom made frame size. What exactly are you trying to achieve? What's the delivery/output requirements? Maybe you should consider resizing your frame to a standard HD setting, 720p (or i) for example, which is 720 pixels high by 1280 wide.

    I think when you export the movie it gives you an option in the video output options where you can set a custom size. Not got the HD software here so can't check, but it definitely does on iMovie 3. :up:

    Toms right - make sure you check the export settings are set to 1500x1000.
    Editing packages will always try to default to a standard SD or HD size unless you force them not to.

    si_p, you do realise you're over two years too late to help with the original issue, right?
