I exported a QT file from FCP6 of a finished 5-minute video that is a little over 1G in size. When I drag it into Toast 9 Titanium to burn a DVD, it becomes one third the size. I want the highest quality possible, so I'm concerned that Toast is needlessly compressing the file.

Is this the case?

If you burn it as data toast'll do nothing to decrease your file. On the other hand, if you encode file into MPEG-2 DVD you'll get what you have, namely drastically decreased file size.

Thanks for your response.
If I record it as a data file, will it play on a standard DVD player? Will it not only play on QT on a computer?

It depends totally on DVD player. I don't bet most of them will be able to. If you aim for DVD player use toast to encode files for DVD and do not sweat it.

You need to look up tutorials on how to create a DVD.

Use compressor to create your mpeg2 files and use DVDSP to author the disc.
