How are you judging that it doesn't look good on your TV? Did you already make a blu-ray disc? If so, how?

First, you're going to find that everyone has adopted the idea that you shouldn't directly edit h.264 footage - that it's best to transcode to ProRes.

Second, one of the tricky things you learn about video, particularly inside of Final Cut, is that the method of plugging your Macintosh into a TV set is in a reliable way to monitor the quality of your footage. Final Cut uses for the number of compromises to be will play the footage correctly in real time–unless you use a hardware output card is connected to a broadcast monitor.

Last, your original question asks about Blu-ray; did you actually make the disc? If so, did you do it through compressor or through the share command inside of Final Cut.
