Quality Loss

Okay, newbie here. Great with Logic Pro, Crap with FCP X...
Ive been shooting HD video at 1920x1080i @25fps (PAL here). I want to export to DVD so I import the .mts file into FCP and all looks great. As soon as I place into Compressor to render an m2v file for DVD SP I get lots of quality and interlacing. I can get a good image using Pavtube to render an MPEG-2 but when I author in Encore I get crap quality again! Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Follow the workflow in this article I wrote about transferring HD video to DVD.

Brad Wright is software engineer, so it may be difficult to understand what he is saying. He is always happy to explain his greater detail.

Jacob, I find that with my HD acquired media, once I have my edit, still in HD I export to QT .mov (generally in the ProRes codec) and take the file into BitVice which then does a brilliant downscale to SD and at the same time encodes for the DVD. The quality of my DVD's using this method is great, especially when played on the new Blu-Ray players which automatically do an 'upscale' for playing on an HD screen.
