iMovie display problem

755 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  10macs
Just put together a "slide show" for a wedding using iMovie. No problem with the music or sound however; after I burnt the DVD and played the show the images are clipped even though I have a wide screen TV. The movie was made in a DV-NTSC-Widescreen format and plays fine when previewed on my iMac. What is the problem? I need a solution asap. My plan is to play the movie through a DVD player and into a projector....don't have to worry about PowerPoint that way. Any suggestions please.

Before you burn in iDVD you need to select the screen format you wish the DVD to use from one of the menus at the top of the screen. I forget which menu.... maybe someone else can elaborate further.
Several options available. Under Preferences/SlideShow there is an option to always scale to TV safe area. Under Project I have selected the Widescreen format. Again I can't understand why it plays widescreen on my computer but not on a widescreen TV. Maybe I'll try to turn off "scale to TV safe area" and burn another dvd.
