I have IMovie 8.0.6 and it imports at 16:9 widescreen from my Panasonic camcorder. I really don't like the black stripe below/above the video so I switch the clips to standard, 4:3. It fills the screen, make the subject of the video seem closer & seems like a better display. Am I losing video quality or does it degrade the video somehow? Does it make a difference when I make a DVD?
