best quality export for DVD; AVID G4 iDVD

What export format would produce the best quality DVD?

I'm working on AVID xpress dv on a G4 mac, using iDVD.

Uncompressed Quicktime?

The project is a four minute music video.

What would be the ideal format for a web delivery?

any suggestions are welcome. thanks

Well you have to use mpeg-2(basically) with dvd-video. Starting with uncompressed QT is a good start but the iDVD hasn't got a very good encoder so only expect so much from it.

I'd check out Sorenson for web delivery. Sorenson Squeeze for Flash MX is a great tool.

Steven,

A good mpeg-2 encoder is BitVice by Innobits, here's their website:

Rik, yes that's a good encoder but idvd doesn't support 3rd party encoders.
