Customer Question

Using iMovie 11, an older Canon GL2 video camera (3 CCD) and a new Sony HDR-FX7, (CMOS) DVD burned on iDVD looks grainy....(remember VHS videos from several years ago?) Didn't have that problem using just the Canon in iMovie HD, but the Sony camera is "incompatable" with that version.
