DVD Studio Pro: "incompatible format"

ok, so some progress has been made,

I exported using "current settings" for a .mov file, then brought into compressor, and made a custome setting (H264)--- did I see DVD SP doesn't support this? The image quality of the resulting file looks good, but it says its a quicktime movie, and DVD SP still says "imcompatible format"--- from what I can tell, DVD SP seems to like m2v files, but every time I make one, the image quality drops radically. Is there away to make a m2v file with more sharpness?

many many thanks!!!!

Nope- DVDs are only MPEG-2. This is in your manual.

[Stephanie Holz] "and made a custome setting (H264)"
H264 should NEVER be in the DVD workflow, NEVER!.

I'm not a bitvice fan, while it does a good job, it seems like I run into pixelation problems a lot more then with compressor.

I would keep this simple.

From FCP, send the sequence to Compressor (Send to Compressor command)
Start with any DVD Prest

Encode the audio to ac3.
