how do i join or merge audio and video files without losing the video quality on OS X? Is there a special program i need or what? Or do i need to get the program for PC? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Files in question are mp3 and mpg files.
I really don't know much about iMovie and how it works. I tried it in Garageband and found out that the video quality turns to s**t. So i guess i will try iMovie and see what it does. Like i said before i don't know how to use it all that well.
I pretty sure I've done this using Quicktime Pro, although it was a while ago and I'm a bit hazy on the details. If you are working with Mpeg2 you will need the plug-in available from Apple, like Quicktime Pro, it's not free. I used to use these programs in conjunction with MPEG Streamclip from Squared5 for make vcds, but that was along time ago.
Thanks for the help guys/gals. All info was good... I found out that exporting via iMovie helps but i found out that i have to convert the mp3 sound file into a mov first is better. Then from there i can import the audio and video files and export them as DV or mpg4 files works. Too bad iDVD can't handle more that 2 files at a time (don't know why). But burning them off as a DVD in toast 7 works fine and now i can finish my files and get them burned off and clear up some hard drive space. Again, thanks guys. All this info has been real helpfull.
