I have a problem converting HD to SD. The specs on the timeline that i edited in are:

1) Snow leopard
2) my timeline in fcp 7.03 is HD 1440x1080
3) timeline compressor is HDV 1080i50
4) field dominance is upper

When i export the mov and bring it back into fcp7 on a Apple prores 422( HQ) timeline with a frame size of DV PAL 5:4 what should the field dominance be on the new timeline in order for it not to look de-interlaced on a television. Also if this is not the right thing to do what is?

The problem is the text looking pixelated and jaggy when i play the video on a HD Bravia tv... Could it be the fact that i tested a sd file on a HD TV, or are the lines there because of field dominance?

After your edit is locked.

Change the sequence codec to prores422.
Render ALL/Full.

Export "Current Settings"

Drop that file into Compressor to create your DVD ready files.
