Panasonic HDC-TM900 with iMovie

Advertisement

Hello,
I purchased recently a Panasonic HDC-TM900 and, although I can import and edit the footage in iMovie '09, the quality of the DVD created is pretty poor. Is there any way to get HD quality on a DVD? What can I use?
I had an older Sony Digital8 and was using iMovieHD. I was hoping that with the new camera I would get a better quality.
Any input is much appreciated.

Hi
iMovie '09, the quality of the DVD created is pretty poor. Is there any way to get HD quality on a DVD?
No this doesn't give a better result.
A. There are no HD-DVD at all (just academic and needs special Toshiba player to be viewed). DVD is as Standard SD-Video
B. iMovie'08 to 11 - is not the tool to use as they discard every second line in Export to iDVD (What ever way used - no 100% work around)
Better is to use iMovie up to HD6 or FinalCut as they deliver full interlaced video to iDVD and 100% quality.
