I'd like to start this post with a short intro about myself.
My name is Bram van Ermingen, and I'm a 24yo student in leisure management. I live in a small town in Holland.
Sadly my father passed away about a month ago.
He left me an Apple Mac Pro dual Quadcore with Final cut and all the corresponding programs.
I've already made a couple of movies which I burnt with IDVD (first made a quicktime mov). This leads to a lot of quality loss
Oh yeah, my current can is a Pana HS700 fullHD (1080progressive).
I tried 3 different methods of exporting my timeline with FCP.
1. quicktime reference, all compressor settings to dvd 90 min high, burn settings to normal.
2. quicktime reference, all compressor settings to dvd 90 min high, burn setting to high.
3. direct to compressor with fcp and burn settings to high.
When I open the timeline in fcp and watch it fullscreen (hd) it looks great.
Offcourse i'm gonna lose someting by going back to dvd, but i think it looks kinda crappy.
I see stripes when my firends come riding by (it a mtb downhill mov) and stuff.
I've seen I can export the movie to a lot of different sorts, but I don't know what format.
