HDV as Pro Res in ProRes LT TImeline to SD DVD?

Yet another HD to DVD question!

I have a ProRes LT timeline. All the HDV footage was captured as ProRes. Client wants a SD DVD. Should I make an intermediate ProRes SD file or go straight to MPEG 2 via Compressor?

Thanks guys.

I see no reason at all to export a downconverted file first... just go right at compressor and do the deed from the ProRes LT sequence I'd suggest.

I do this all the time with DVCProHD footage. I export a QT using Current settings and use that HD file in Compressor to make the SD mv2 & ac3 files.
