Shot HD, edited FCP, need good quality SD DVD...

Hi Ya'll!

First off, I'm the third editor working on this project so things are a MESS!!! The project that was shot in HD most of the project was layed out in FCP on a 720x480 timeline... The editor before me said he converted most of the stuff to SD so the render time wouldn't take so long, but I still found some shots that did not fit the correctly so I had to make adjustments... I need to burn a SD DVD 720x480. I'm making final Quicktimes of the the segments with the "DV50 NTSC 48kHz" setting. I'm not fully convinced the Quicktimes are the best quality. Any suggestions? I'm making the DVD in DVD Studio Pro.

Thanks!

Why go to DV50 and then to DVD? That's two compression steps. Export uncompressed out of FCP or just send directly to Compressor for MPEG-2 encoding.
