    final cut timeline export
    Hey guys, I am trying to export my Apple pro res 422 final cut timeline with the wish of making a file for burning a dvd. It seems that MPEG 2 is the solution, but for some reason I am having trouble to do so. At the same time when an Mpeg 2 comes out of compressor it as the audio and video file but toast won't burn it. I have try to follow the tutorials on that and when I open my apple pro res with quicktime and export it does not give me the possibility for m2v file??? I am in trouble Can I go straight from fcp to compressor via dvd best quality? do you have any suggestion on that ? Or do you have any advice to make sure to keep as much of the apple pro res quality onto a dvd. Can you explain the procedure, thanks. Pierre ps really need help

    If you want to play the video on a DVD player then you have to first convert the video to MPEG-2 and then convert it to the correct DVD format by "authoring" in a program like iDVD or DVD Studio Pro. Both of these applications can do the MPEG conversion automatically for you, but Compressor gives you more control over the quality.
