I have recently got myself an Iphone 4 and have been using it to film some trips. Whilst its never going to match the performance of a dedicated machine its simplicity of use and the fact that I always have it with me makes it very attractive to use. I have also splashed out on an Owle mount to make it more steady to use.
When I view the HD clips on my Imac they look great, however when I then edit them into a movie using Imovie 11 the image quality is poor. There is lots of visible banding in dark areas which is just not present in the original. I have seen some posts in other places where people say that this is a recognised flaw in Imovie 11.
I have always been a windows user in the past however I have now crossed the tracks and got myself a new Imac.
My question is can I improve the output of Imovie 11 by choosing other settings. I have tried to but not improved matters, and if not which editor is the one to pursue?
