"Any tips?"

Yup,

Provide us with much more information, and/or search this forum. HD to SD workflow with FCP has been covered loads and loads and loads of times.

We can't really guess at what HD format have, what other software you are using, what you've already tried, what was wrong with what you tried, and what SD format you are trying to end up with.

Okay, sorry, it's been frenzied here. So I am working w/ HDV in an FCP sequence set for HDV 1080i60. which honestly looks a little artifacty already. I was not around during import and original editing.

I am trying to compress to SD (like NTSC DV) and have used Compressor to a QT w/ dv/dvcpro ntsc codec,apple intermediate codec and even photojpeg @ 720 x 480, square pixels and NTSC. All of them look super chunky and seem blurred when i add ade-interlace filter in QT pro!!

I need it to run smoothly with an app called Isadora on a Mac mini, which from experience has trouble handling big video files. Will be projected on a Hitachi CP X444 - LCD projector native res: 1024 x 768. My current work around is to output to H.264 codec but much file smaller size?? Any thoughts?

There are a whole bunch of threads I've answered in the forum recently covering the same subject, one starts a few threads below this one....

See how you go with those and if you still have problems or you don't understand something, then there's a bunch of people more than happy to help
