Taking HDV shows and making them into DV NTSC

Not sure this is where I need to be, but I'm not happy with the quality of video after I bring my HDV down to SD, what are my best options for the very best final product.

XHA1
FCP 6

I take my show, make it a quick time player and place it into a NTSC time fr standard NTSC this can be 16:9 so I shouldn't have to resize I don't think.

Any help would be great. I'm a visual learner and an online tutorial would be great if you know of one. Thanks again and God Bless.

Piece o' cake!

In FCP, put your HDV timeline into a DV Widescreen timeline, and scale as necessary. It'll make 16x9 video.

Need 4x3 video? Use a 4x3 DV timeline and scale as you need, either making a center punch or a letterbox out of the HDV.
