"Easy to use...but not recommended using HD input"

October 06, 2010  |  By robert20902

 |  Version: Apple iDVD 7.0.4

Pros

Easy to use, drag-and-drop interface

Cons

Does not play nice with HD input.

Summary

For the MAC user that's looking for a VERY basic DVD authoring tool, iDVD 7.0.4 will probably fit the bill....UNLESS you are working in high definition.

If the source input is standard definition, then the output will be fine. If the input is HD (in my case, 1920x1080 30fps) the output looks terrible; as bad as playing a VHS on a wide-screen TV. No amount of "parameter tweaking" (and there are few parameters to tweak) will fix the problem, despite the fact that iDVD supposedly handles HD input. I'm obviously not going to get HD quality on a standard-definition DVD but I do expect a good SD picture..

"Product does not support my Mac."

 |  Version: Apple iDVD 7.0.4

Pros

Can't answer that.

Cons

I did not realize that my iMac G5 (not Intel) is not compatible with the upgrade. Apple has forsaken my computer :(
