IMovie 11 :: What Does Optimizing As Full Size Do

I am importing a lot of movie files to work with. Mainly Flip videos. When I do, I am given the option to optimize as full size, optimize as a smaller size, or not to optimize. My goal is not to loose any quality. Is there a difference between Optimizing as full size, and not optimizing at all? If I do not optimize, it imports the full size, correct? If so, what does optimizing as full size do? How is it different?

MacBook Pro :: 100 Percent Page Size Is Not Full Size...
I have noticed this with both my 13" MacBook Pro, and my 24" Dell monitor.

All I want to do is type a "word" (pages) document at 100% actual size.

When I set the zoom to 100%, it is too small. You can see what I mean when I hold of a piece of regular paper next to the screen. When I set it to 100%, I'd expect the blank page on the screen to be the SAME size as the paper.

OS X :: Won't Change Partition Size / Not Full Size
I changed my partition size firstly from (full disk size) about 160GB to 80GBs in order to create a new one which was another 80GBs after that I decided to just leave this 160GB and one partition, so I did what I decided, but now there is a problem. I did everything under Installation CD and than it shows in Disk Tool that the partition is 160GB on diagrams but under it it shows: total size 80GB... and the same is when I launching Snow Leopard. I'm clicking Macintosh HD and informations than it shows total size: 80GB, I tried to change again partition sizes but it does nothing, I cannot do anything under Mac OS and bootable installation disc. I'm completely stuck it shows, always and always that "Spliting in to partitions finished due an error - could not modficate partition's map".

IMovie 11 :: Why Is Data Size Inspector Twice The Size Of The File
I am not asking this to save space. I am just curious. When playing a dv (captured from camera) clip, I notice that the QT inspector shows data size about twice the size of the dv clip size in file system. Is it because the dv is compressed and QT decompresses?

Applications :: IMovie Does Not Have Full Screen?
Doesn't it seem a bit weird that after bigging up how good iPhoto was in full screen and how steve thinks that all Mac apps should have a full screen mode.
Was anyone else a bit surprised when they found out there was no full screen for iMovie or garage, two apps that I would honestly think would be amazing in full screen?

Applications :: IMovie To IDVD - Different File Size?.
When exporting my videos the file sizes are coming up at around 100mb. I've around 50 videos to fit on 1 DVD.

Does anyone know how to reduce the file size? Is there a free converter? I've tried going from Large to Medium but it's not as great as I'd hoped.

MacBook Pro :: IMovie Not Using Full Potential?
Today I started to export my first iMovie project and when I export the movie it seems it is only using 50% of the CPU (looks more like it is only working on 1 core) but when I check the activity monitor it shows it is working on 2.I have an SSD 4GB Ram and Core duo on my Macbook pro.Is there a way to check if the MBP is using its full potential?Right now I can perfectly work and watch movies without interference but the export takes very long, what if I just want to make sure the export goes the fastest?

Software :: Need The Full Size Files Of The Photos To A DVD?
I have exported the albums from iPhoto. I want burned to the desktop--which should return the photos to their original file size. When I burn to a DVD via the Burn folder--the photos are compressed.

I need the full size files of the photos to print quality pictures and to load onto a PC for other work requiring large sized files for quality printed pictures. My DVD does not show up on my desktop so I can just drag the folder to the DVD to burn it I have to use the burn folder.

OS X :: Exporting Movie From Full HD IMovie 09 To Toast 10 Pro?
I am soon going to be buying a Sony HDR-XR520V and I already have iLife 09 installed on my Mac Pro. I will also be buying Roxio Toast 10 Pro and a Bluray Drive to be able to watch my videos on my HD television. Now I need to know if I can export to Toast 10 in 1920 by 1080 Interlaced or not? I'm sure its possible but when I look at the Share option for iMovie 09 the largest resolution is 960 by 540 which is half of what I want. Any ideas on how to do this?

IMac Intel :: Screen Not Full Size With DVD Movie?
I have a new iMac and played my first DVD. It was a 16:9 letter box format. The DVD started as a very small picture. I then went to view and set for full screen mode. The movie still only expanded to 70% or so of the screen. Are iMAC not capable of using the entire screen, I thought movie playing was a feature. It looked great and we moved close to the screen, but this cant be right.

IPhoto 11 :: How To Change Contact Pictures From Thumbnails To Full Size
So after some investigation, i have found out that when a contact calls, i don't see their picture because i put all my contacts into Address Book on my iMac, assigned the photos there and then synced with my iPhone. Apparently that means i can only view my contacts photos in thumbnail size.

Is there any way of changing them to full size? Without having to transfer each photo individually to my iphone AND THEN assigning it to a contact?

Mac Safari :: Is There A Way To Have IMovie NOT Blow Up A Small Video Size .mov
am animating an 8-bit flash video and basically, when all is said and done I want it to be maybe 200X200 dimensions in iMovie. (Its the latest version of iMovie)I export the .mov of the 200X200 video and when I import it into iMovie it just blows up the video to standard 640X480, or whatever they are. So obviously its blurry and distorted. I wanted to have a black screen around the small 200X200 .mov file. The reason being when watching the video it will be like looking at a Gameboy screen. Very small but clear detail.

IWeb 09 :: Want Different Size Videos On Site With Option To Play Full Screen
I am trying to publish videos on iWeb '09 with my mobile me account. I would really like to have two videos on there, one for slower connections & one for faster connections. The faster connection, I would like to have the ability to have the person choose to play it in full screen or at least large. How do I do this? Also, many of the viewers of the website are PC users - so it needs to work on that platform.

Also, is there a preferred file type? avi? mov? other? Should I start it in iMovie and then go to iWeb?

Intel Mac :: How To View Photos Full Size And Then Delete If Not Sharp
I have my photos stored on extrnal hard drive and want to view them full size to see if sharp and then delete.

I could always do this in windows on the one screen with no problems. On the Mac it is very difficult and time consuming have rung phone support a few times and have not come up with a solution.

The last suggestion was to go thru Bridge shurly I should not have to use othere software to do such a simple thing. I thought a Mac was supposed to be easy and good for photographers but I am finding it very fustrating.

I want to size it down so I can fit more bars on every page, and ultimately print a reasonably sized score. I've searched many places, but have not found a way to do so yet.

OS X Leopard :: Green Button Resizes To Full Screen Window - How To Return To Default Size
There's something that's been bugging me ever since I started living with OS X. I'm sure that there must be an obvious solution but I can't find it.

Why don't windows resize properly? The green button at the top left of a typical application (like Firefox, MS Word) gives you a full screen window. Then how do I get it back to default size? I have to drag the corner to resize it every time, and have to fiddle with it instead of just one simple click (the yellow button should do it but it sends the window to the dock instead.)

IMovie 11 :: Image Size And Cropping - Finding Step By Step Guide
I have a video in .mov format that was created by Roxio's Easy VHS to DVD software. The movie is a copy of a 4:3 aspect ratio videotape. When I review the clips from this movie in iMovie, the size and aspect ratio are identical to the original. However, when I move the clips into an iMovie project, the aspect ratio appears to be the same but all of the edges are severely cropped (it's like one used a zoom feature on the image). I get the same result whether I select 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio for the project. I have also had this experience with iPhoto -cropping occurs on any photo being printed or exported. I can convert the .mov into a video DVD or any format, without aspect ratio change cropping. But, that conversion doesn't allow me to edit the .mov.

MacBook Pro :: Effect Of Screen Not Stretching To Full Size Of Screen
I just purchased a 24" dell monitor to use with my macbook Pro. My Mac does not give me the option of selecting the screen resolution that the Dell monitor says it has (1920x1080). It only allows for 1600x900 at max. This has the effect of the screen not stretching to the full size of the screen.

Mac Pro :: Optimizing Refurbished
I will be getting a refurbished mac pro soon and was wondering if i should do anything to get the most out of my mac. I cant remember where ive heard this but some people suggested defragging the computer right away and doing a clean reinstall of leopard and partining a hard drive with xp/vista. And was wondering if these are good ideas to consider. Or maybe there are other ideas I haven't heard of that will also work.

OS X :: Optimizing MacBook Pro Performance?
Hey so I just got a MacBook in September and I want to keep it fast, clean, and working smooth for the years to come.I want to do all the things possible regularly (maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks, maybe more often) that will help optimize the performance, speed, and everything else on my MBP and keep it clean and working smooth... If I download Onyx, I don't know what "processes" to do and something might happen or get deleted if I check off something for Onyx to do. So could you tell me specifically what to do to just make my MBP faster, cleaner and all that like I said before.

IDVD (iLife 09/11) :: Won't Work With Window Size / Can't Find Full Screen Mode
I'm putting a few clips onto a DVD for a friend. The problem is they're quite low resolution and ideally when their button is clicked they wouldn't go to full screen, but would be about half that size so they still look crisp(ish)

Is there any way of doing this in iDVD? With a plain surround or something.

OS X Leopard :: Optimizing Speed With Earthlink DSL?
According to Earthlink, I'm supposed to have a 1.5Mbps connection, but rarely get more than 650kbps download speeds. I don't expect 1.5 Mbps, but if this is all the speed I can get, I think I can change to Verizon DSL for $20 less per month.

I am connected with a Fujitsu speedport modem through a Linksys BEFSR81 switch to a wired network with 3 Macs and 2 printers. The G5 runs 10.5.6 and the two flat panel iMacs run 10.4.11. I am mainly concerned with the G5 connection.

I have disabled IPv6 and tried using Open DNS servers with little change in speed. I have the MTU set at 1504 (wont go any higher) and have tested the speed with and without the Linksys switch: no difference.

IWeb 09 :: More Fun With Optimizing - Slow Loading
I put up a site on an external server (Go Daddy). And still the pages take a long time to load. I thought that might be attributable to Mobile Me's server speed. I am not seeing any noticeable speed improvement. In fact the load time seems even more sluggish on this new site. Now granted, the entire page is covered with busy background photo images, at fairly high quality compression. Is that the sole reason for the long load in time? (I will try significantly upping the compression level on the images to see if that makes a big difference.) Also, the images don't seem to cache. When I return to the page, it seems to have to redownload all of the images again to display them.

Applications :: Mac Needs Cleaning / Optimizing, Any Software Recommendations
We'll I've just installed a new hard drive today, after finally taking the plunge and opening her up. I've cloned my external usb disk to the new disk, as I didn't really want to do a fresh install. I say though my macs seen better days, its running slow, likely for 4 years worth of stuff thats cluttering up my hard drive and system files. I basically want to speed up the system and free up some disk space. Can you recommend any program(s), for cleaning, optimizing, or uncluttered that actually work well.
