Ugh, having issues with iMovie

The movies I produce from it, the quality is worse source quality. Hell, it looks better in the preview than the video that goes out. Maybe I need to update it (it's the '09 edition).

1. What size are you exporting as?

I generally use the largest size (the one suggested for viewing on TV).

Very short one, shot with a phone:



More work than it looks:

3. Are you using ripped material?

If you are, you might have to adjust your settings in those programs. I use Handbrake, and have custom setup s for animation, TV and movies (animation really needs it).

But Handbrake does have an animation default you can check out and tweak.

9. You don't do it in iMovie; you do it in the rip

You do it in Handbrake, MactheRipper or iSquint.
