Still perplexed. I can import directly into quicktime and the video looks good. I tried iMovieHD and it looks okay, especially when adjustments are added. Importing directly into iMovie '11 looks terrible. Any thoughts, anybody?

Create a new admin user on your Mac from System Preferences, Users and Groups (accounts if you are 10.6). Log into said admin user. Import clips into iMovie in a new user. Report back with your findings.

Set up new user, same issue.
To get it close to reality, I have to bump saturation up nearly 200% with the level sliders about 7 and 95 as well. Indoor lighting, red banner, girl with red hair, red bricks, all terribly muted. LCD screen and direct to tv quite vibrant. . . .
Thanks for any suggestions.

Sony TRV900; all my imported MiniDV (Firewire) content to iMovie (via MacBook Pro) is dulled. When I playback video on the camcorder or via S-Video to TV the colors are wonderful. It is a 3CCD camcorder. I hope that the imports are good and the interpretation of the raw codec by Mac is off (and can be adjusted). Specifically, what is really poor are shiny objects, red. Water, flowing and rippling water is lousy.
