I recently bought a Canon Vixia HFR20 HD camera. I was editing my video on imovie and when I was trying to export to DVD, imovie thumbed down the resolution quality. What programs are available where I can edit and then burn the HD video at full quality onto DVD? Thanks again!

Thanks. I’m currently editing via imovie but when I try to export, the resolution gets dumbed down and itl ooks horrible! Any programs, free or at a decent price, that I can use to edit and then export?
You could make an AVCHD dvd that would be HD but you will still need a blu ray player.
