[Drea Solan] "b) Per Dave's entry: "If you have anything in your edit timeline that requires editing, ... Change the edit timeline's codec to ProRes 422, export a self-contained quicktime movie from FCP, and use it in Compressor.""

Sorry, that was a typo: if you have anything that requires RENDERING -- blends and text overlays certainly would necessitate rendering -- you should change the timeline's codec to ProRes. You wouldn't believe how crummy-looking the text will be if you render it in a DV timeline! I recommend duplicating the edit timeline, changing the duplicate's codec to ProRes, and exporting.

After that, follow Richard's DVD-making advice and you should be good to go.
