Compression setting for 24PA DV in FCP's Compressor

Having read through many of the forums and threads at this amazing website I have conceited defeat..for the time being :)

I have a Panasonic DVX100A and I have recorded video in 24P Advanced on Mini-DV tape.

I then proceeded to capture this video in Final Cut Pro 6.0.6.
I used the Easy Setup DV NTSC 48kHz Advanced (2:3:3:2) Pulldown Removal.

WHAT I AM AIMING AT ACCOMPLISHING:
I need to export this as a file. Not to tape or DVD or Web. Just a file for playback on a video monitor or perhaps a clients computer screen (which will not be a "real" video monitor)

I would love the video to look as true to what I saw in the camera's viewfinder, as close as possible of course. I shot using a tripod and I feel the shot looks very nice on my video monitor when I view it from the FCP timeline.

When I export it I cannot seem to make it come out clear. It has a very fuzzy tone. The human in the shot looks very grainy and fuzzy on the edges, yet only when I export. The human is being shot at a medium closeup (waist to head).

Anyone have any tips or suggestions/revisions to my process or what I can do to get a final export looking up to scratch.

THANKS!

Ok, what do you mean by this. Export it how? To where? Compressor? QT movie? QT Conversion?
Where are you looking at the video? QT? QT player X (Which will scale up files)

Sorry to be pesky but the devil is in the details.

Best,
