      I need give a video to a friend of mine to finish editing. I use the newer version of imovie. Since he doesn’t want to upgrade to the newer version of imovie, I was going to make convert the footage to .mov and then give it to him. The question is, will I lose resolution in converting it to .mov and then have him editing it in that format? He is going to make the DVD from there.

      Thank you for the feedback. I will prob just play it out to a video tape then and have him reload it to his computor.

      I don’t know if I agree with Johnboy.

      I use FCP. If I output as NTSC/DV, it exports in the same quality as it was inputed.

      So it all depends on what setting it is on when it is exported.

      I had gone into “Options” and set if for “Best.” I will look to see if there was anything listed as NTSC/DV.
