DVD *ALSO* IS 720x480 (NTSC) or 720x576 (PAL), it uses the
same aspect ratios. I'm not sure why iDVD is showing you 640x480
because I can assure you that is NOT the resolution of an MPEG2
DVD file. It is probably showing you the altered resolution for
viewing on a square pixel monitor (ie, your computer screen).

When and how did it show you the this 640x480 resolution?

Rob,

If you control click on an iDVD project that has already been burned, you can select show package contents then you can have access to all of the media files iDVD uses to create a finished DVD from the project. If you have the QT MPEG2 playback component, you can then open the MPEG2 file for playback and hit command J on the keyboard to view the properties of the file. Also if you just select the file in the finder window in column view, it'll show various properties including the dimensions.

This is how I came to the conclusion the MPEG2 is 640x480. I don't use iDVD at home because I still use a G3 but at work we use iDVD to make quick samples for clients that want their "dubs" on DVD.

At home I use BitVice to encode MPEG2 but can't use the QT MPEG2 playback component so I'll take a BitVice encoded MPEG2 to work and see what the dimension are for it.

having trouble

working on a pc, I've right clicked, I've left clicked, I have quicktime, but the download won't happen. just opens window and then nothing. No status window opens, nothing. Maybe I have other issues.

I wish I could see the stuff, it sounds like it was impressive.

Barry,

thanks for the footage,

both files look just gorgeous !

The XL2 seems to have a great dynamic range and great warm colors (but not too saturated )....very nice.

Barry,

Could you please explain how you compressed/exported these clips before uploading. I have some stuff I want to post . . . but I can't get anything that looks like what you did from FCP.

Thanks.
