Hello guys, I shot some work using Sony xdcam 1080×720p and was wondering what the best format to export this work to a dvd and still mentain the high quality.
Thank you.

What kind of DVD? Your need isn't clear.

A DATA DVD, which is a collection of files?

Or an authored DVD, which plays in a DVD player?

You should understand that an authored DVD can ONLY be standard definition.

Thank you. I intend to produce an authored DVD with the content.
I shot the documentary using an xdcam (1280x720) format. Am editing using the same format on FCP but would love to find out what the best possible format I can use to export this work.
I know DVD is standard definition thats why I need some help

First, export a Prores 422 version of your completed edit. Then you can use it to make the necessary mp2 & ac3 files for a DVD authoring application.

DVD's can be 16x9, but you have to tell the authoring application that you're making one. Depending on the application, that happens in different places.

Don't be disappointed by the loss of image quality. There's a reason why they call one HIGH definition, and the other STANDARD definition.
