Hello everyone. I have created a 3 minute slideshow with stills from IPhoto, transitions, and music and I have noticed when I view the project in full screen mode there is very noticeable distortion in the video. It looks like a bad tv image, wavy lines moving horizontally and only in one section of the screen. I have burned it to a CDRW disc and it is just as bad on a television.
What would be causing this, and how do i correct it? Thanks for the help.

James, viewing an iMovie project at full size is not a fair test of image quality. It forces iMovie to display the movie image larger than its natural size, which reduces the quality. It's like viewing a 1600 x 1200 iPhoto image at 6400 x 4800.
Be aware too that iMovie never shows you all the quality that's actually there, even when played at the best size.
There are many threads here that discuss image quality. Search the forum for "blurry", "jaggies" and related terms.
Watch out too for the iMovie bug that adds jaggies to the images when you press the "Create iDVD Project" button in the iDVD tab of iMovie. (Search for that.) If quality was reduced when you pressed the button, that may be the cause of the problem.

I just created a slideshow dvd in imovie, and when I hit finalize it said that it would take 7 hours to finalize.  I've only had my macbook pro for 6 months, and this is the first imovie I've done...is this normal?  If not how can I speed up this process?
