Please do not post if you are from the school of,
"it's just the imovie viewer, once you export the
product the pictures won't be blurry anymore. I've
read that 100 times and it's not true.
I'm not sure that's been said, at least not normally. It's not JUST the iMovie viewer; there's lots of factors that affect image quality. But if we make the mistake of judging image quality by what we see in iMovie we're not judging it correctly. That's a very different thing.
So, if you've read (anything about this issue) 100 times, you've seen lots of suggestions. What exactly have you tried?
Or do we have to have the same conversation you've read 100 times?

the transition it was crisp and clear but once the transition ends and the pic 'settles' it goes back to being blurry
Sounds like you've been bitten by the old iMovie bug that't been discussed here about 100 times

Currently Being ModeratedOct 27, 2006 4:44 AM (in response to Kevin Ginsberg)I made the mistake on first use of trying to drag photos to imovie into the 'movie' area rather than properly importing them as photos. The program seemed to convince itself that it(the photo) was a movie and it went all blurry. Import correctly and all should be crisp and perfect.
just incase it's a fundamental error...17" imac 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.8), 1GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM
I have a spare folder setup on my desktop that I just drag the photos into the "drag clips to build your project" area
Are you telling me this makes a difference if you import them differently??mac pro, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
