Mp4 From Imovie Burned To Dvd In Toast 11 = Lousy Color On Hd Tv

Question

Newbie here: Cannot figure what I'm doing wrong.

 

- iMovie exported as mp4; (1920) colors look great on my iMac

- burn as video DVD with Toast 11

- play on TV in a bluray player (DVD is not bluray) = colors look really washed out.

---------

How and where do I correct?

 

I've also tried a little test iMovie; same thing happens.

Would it make a difference to buy and use the Toast bluray plug-in? Or is this correctable some other way?

 

Thanks.

I don't have a Mac or iMovie so I may be way off base.

 

If you are creating a standard DVD then there is no pint in exporting to mp4 as it will be converted to DVD mpg format. BlueRay is not involved at any point.

The colors shouldn't look washed out although the picture should look soft if you are viewing it at full screen rather than actual size. There isn't any setting to change. I don't know why it turned out that way.

 

You don't say how long the movie is. You do say you have a HD video, a HDTV and a Blu-ray player so it doesn't make much sense to me for you to be making a standard-definition video DVD. With Toast's Blu-ray plugin you can burn HD Blu-ray format to regular or DL DVD media if the video isn't too long. There also are ways to play HD video from your Mac or a hard drive on your TV without needing to burn discs at all.
