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.
yes, you will most certainly lose quality by converting to mov file.
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.
