Topic: Encoding for DVD
Compressor, which ships with both Final Cut Pro 4 and DVD Studio Pro, is an excellent professional utility designed to encode video into MPEG-2, the format required for DVDs. Compressor uses the same MPEG-2 encoder embedded in DVD Studio Pro, but gives you more control over the encoding parameters. Note: This article fails to mention the problems that can arise using Export to > Compressor, mentioning only how it should work in theory. Avoid this method and export to a QT movie which is opened in Compressor.
