This is beside the point, but I must say I'm a bit confused with this new Communities forum site. Either I'm missing something or they took the ability away from us to search within a particular subject. I would like to search from within, let's say, just the "iMovie '11" section and not the entire Communities area. Hmmm...a new learning curve is ahead.


Anyway, I just purchased a new Panasonic HDC-TM90 hi-def camcorder, and am really liking it so far.


I realize that iMovie likes working with the iFrame format, but I'd like to know what's the highest format I can record my video onto my new camcorder and still have iMovie recognize that video for editing.


I've shot some test footage at what I think is the highest setting on my camcorder, and then imported that video into iMovie. At the import window iMovie asks me how I'd like to import my footage. "Full-Original Size" or "Large- 960 X 540".


If I choose the "Full-Original Size" setting, does iMovie convert my video to the iFrame format, or does it import the footage at a higher resolution?


I'm going on a trip and would like to shoot my video in the highest resolution possible, but still be able to work with my video within iMovie '11 once I return. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. For what it's worth, I also have Final Cut Express v.4.


As always, thanks folks...Gramps.
