Avid Xpress Pro - Help!

I am shooting a documentary - shooting with the FX1 - 1080i

I went to my school today to edit a five minute sample - it was amazing - but I cant burn it on a DVD

They have Avid Xpress Pro HD - the editing worked smoothly - but I couldnt figure out how to encode/export so it looked just as good on a DVD

Do I need specific software? I am new to this - please I need you advice!

Unfortunately, it is never going to look as good because what you are doing is downconverting from High Definition to Standard Definition.

I can tell you that this get's very complicated. Right now I have edited a Ten Minute piece shot on a Z1U and cut in Avid Express Pro HD. What I have done is exported a 10 one minute clips into a Quicktime Animation Codec. I then reassemble the in Adobe After Effects which I export into a MPG2 Clip.

Someone else may have a better workflow but this is the best I can come up with to keep from encoding and reencoding several times.
