Exporting HD to burn in DVD / submitting to Film Fests - thank you!

Hi
I am looking to export my 100 minutes movie out of FCP.
The project setting are 1920x1080p at 23.98 FPS.

I would like to export in very high quality. I am not sure for the best way to go about this, so ALL advice/suggestions/feedback is greatly appreciated.


Just another question, do I have to convert my movie to 25FPS before?


Thank you in advance for your help :)

Laura.

Can you submit a Blu-ray? That would be much better than a standard def DVD.

H264 aint bad really, its high quality and can be transcoded in any decent DVD authoring program (DVD STudio pro or Encore)

If you're worried about using a compressed format and want to maintain the highest quality going into your transcode (and have lots of hard drive space to spare!) then export uncompressed.

Im finding H264 to be great for the job im currently working on, and given that a DVD is mpeg2 compressed Standard Def footage, the HD (1920x1080) H264 files im feeding encore look great when downconverted!

Hope this helps.
