HD lost when event imported from iMovie

I'm trying the Final Cut Pro X Trial as opposed to iMovie. I've imported some events that were HD but learned when I went to share with Youtube that resolution available was 960 X 540. If I Quicktime share via iMovie to my hard drive and import the movie into Final Cut Pro X I no longer have this happen. Not sure what's up as I'm just learning.

iMovie has the option of creating (conforming) projects to 960x540. For the consumer, this means their video will take up 1/4 of the space of full HD.

Technically, btw, 960x540 is HD, defined as greater than SD (640x480).

I'd suggest looking at the original QuickTime files - if they're 960x540, you may have chosen this option when ingesting your material into iMovie.
