      Hello,

      I have some old footage that was recorded on a camcorder in 4:3. and recorded to a DVD with a DVD recorder.

      I’ve used MPEG Streamclip to create a .dv file from that DVD. I’ve imported the .dv file to iMovie ’09.

      The video is stretched in iMovie to 16:9. If I change the Project Properties to Standard (4:3) it changes the clip in the Event Browser having black bars on the top and botttom and the video in Project Browser to being square but with the left and right side cropped.

      It should be added that the original DVD plays in the correct aspect ratio as does the .dv file if viewed in Quicktime.

      Can anybody help me with this problem?

      Regards

      Hi,

      I was considering getting Quicktime Pro.

      Would doing what you suggest create a file that iMovie can edit?
