Don't panic yet. If the footage looks and sounds great on your computer, then most likely everything is fine. If your using iDVD you should export your movie from your NLE as a quiktime file and not an AVI file. This might be where your problem is. Does your footage look and sound good when played back from your FX1 on to a monitor? Also, I think in the future you should shoot in 1080i and let the camera downconvert the footage to DV.
I hope this helps, Aldo

Hey Aldo,

My editor uses Premiere on his PC to edit, so he exported the movie as an AVI.

I took the AVI file and dropped it onto an iDVD project (on my mac) and burned it that way.

The footage looks great when played back throught the camera, so I know that it isn't completely screwed.

Nobody thinks this could be a frame rate problem? Once again, we shot with Cineframe24 and are now editing in a 29.97fps project. Is this the proper way to do this?

The audio is still not playing nice.

Geez, it's such a nice camera, I wish I could spend more time shooting and less on damage control.

Thanks for everyone's help, I WILL get to the bottom of this.

...Andy

IDVD does not work with AVI files. Your editor needs to provide you with a quicktime file or you need to convert the file to quicktime yourself before inporting to iDVD. This should solve your problem Andy.
Cheers, Aldo
