Idvd Problem


I am trying to burn an HD DVD project in iDVD 7.1.2. My system is OS X Yosemite and I created the movie in iMovie 09.

When I preview the movie in iDVD the resolution looks fine but when I burn it to a disc or to folders the resulting image is low res (pixelated edges), even though I have gone into Project Info and selected "professional quality" from the menu. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it?


Where to begin...?

HD DVD was a protocol that attempted to compete against Blu-ray. It failed and was abandoned years ago. Apple never supported HD DVD nor Blu-ray, for that matter. It sounds like you have HD content that you are trying to burn to DVD. That is not HD DVD. iDVD burns standard DVD irrespective of the resolution of your source. The standard DVD pixel map is 720 x 480 rectangular pixels. If the image is 4:3, then the pixels are "tall"; if the image is 16:9, then the pixels are "wide."
