    iDVD is changing the aspect ratio of my iMovie clips
    Hi there, I recorded a recital on my HD camera, and uploaded and edited the files onto iMovie 7.1.4 (from iLife '08). I am now transferring them as clips to iDVD, so each song in the recital can be a different chapter in the movie (Project > add movie, then I add each segment I cropped in iMovie). I have no problem adding the clips, but when I try to preview them, they are completely squeezed. This happens in widescreen and standard format. I'm using iDVD 7.0.2 (from iLife '08). I have no idea how to proceed... any thoughts? Thanks, Mia

    Hi Mia, try burning a test DVD and having a look on a TV... or wherever you want your footage to be played. If the footage is only going to be played by an LCD/ Computer screen, then you might want to do some tweaking. If you will be playing via a DVD player and TV/ projector, you will probably find it plays back fine. Have you checked your iDVD preferences? HD project? PAL/ NTSC selected accordingly?
