Help please - tired mum needs to get hd footage onto DVD.
I recently got my first mac and love it. I have now just purchased the Hv20 and I am dead impressed.
Obviously I don't have that much experience with macs and this is also my first video recorder for years.
The only time I get to work on it is late at night when the kiddies are sleeping. Unfortunately thats when my brain stops working so I was hoping some less fatigued souls could help me out please.
I have googled but seem to be confusing myself.
I have shot some footage in the default settings and its awesome. I've imported it into imovie hd (because I prefer it to imovie 08) and made some short movies and shared them to iweb. I would love to be able to send this to my nan back in England on DVD but somehow I need to down convert. I can't seem to find the simple answer perhaps because I am so tired and can't concentrate.
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out here. I quite fancy getting myself FCP or FCE at some point. Would this help with what I am trying to do. I want to keep my main editing in HD so that I can watch and store it that way. in the mean time I've got imovie and idvd to work with.
Your help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forum
This may help
I'm a PC person and use Pinnacle Studio 11 (which I like)
Your Nan will need a PAL DVD not NTSC (unless she has a "clever" DVD player)
