I'm brand new to FCPX. Still testing with the 30-day trial. Hit a big brick wall. Getting FCP X to DVD or Blu-ray seems to be a big dead end. Trying to work with the Share Project options to produce the files for DVD/BD but this lacks any options for changing settings. Working with Compressor seems it would solve this but with no success.
It appears I may have to render out an uncompressed file and take that into a stand-alone Compress to make my need changes.
But this still leaves us with no way the create the menus and put it altogether. Looking at old versions of iDVD and DVD Studio Pro, it seems either can do Blu-rays.
So, how does FCP X take my finished project to DVD/BD with professional menus (not the basic nothing menus offered inside FCP X)?
Thanks for any feedback.

Apple has no software for burning BluRays. There was a way to make DVD SP make one if the project was 10 min or less, but I don't know what that way is. Apple seems to think that DVDs and BluRay as deliverables aren't wanted, or don't exist. They have no options for creating a DVD or BluRay with menus.
I THINK you can make a DVD from the SHARE menu from FCX...but that's it. And there's no way to make menus. It'll be a single video on a DVD that will start when you put it in the player. That's it. No BluRay. DVD SP authored HD DVDs...the format that lost out to BluRay. if you want to make BluRay, you need Toast.
