Why does video output appear fuzzy?

in Mac Software edited January 2014

I am new to Mac and I hope someone can help me here. I have been using Sony Vaio notebook and a Sony camcorder DCR-PC330E PAL ( and a Panasonic) to burn my home videos for some time and they always appear crisp and clear.

Recently, I bought a new MacBook Pro 4,1 OS X Version 10.5.5. using iMovie and iDVD and somehow the output (facial features) appears fuzzy even though I set to Professional quality. However, the mini-DVs produced using the Panasonic camcorder appears fine.

I even tried to import .avi files from my Sony and tried to create the videos and they still produced dismal output.

Pls help cos I really loved using the iMovie compared to "Click to DVD" on the Sony notebook.

Is there some softwares/drivers/codecs which I need to download and install?
