DV/DVCPRO - NTSC export from FCP to DVDPRO

A coworker wants me to reorder the contents of a simple DVD.
I took the data off the DVD and imported it into FCP 7. The footage is DV/DVCPRO NTSC. I reordered the footage into a new sequences, then I proceeded to put back onto a DVD.
I exported as self-contained movies, but when I imported into DVDPRO the footage looks bad (I let DVDpro process the footage to see how it would do...and ick!)
So next I exported from FCP and then processed at high-quality in compressor, and import into DVDPro, the footage looks much better but there is pixelation in some subject's faces as compressor made the files much smaller.
The original footage is only 2.8G of data. I don't need to compress the footage at all, so what file-type could I/should I export as from FCP 7, so that it is usable in DVDStudio Pro? I look at the list of dozens of settings and I don't know where to start...
