Highest quality export settings - XH A1 24F

Hello again and thanks in advance. I am exporting a video in FCP and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for the highest possible quality export. I shot with a Canon XH-A1 at 1080 / 24F mode. Ultimately, I'll need a version I can put on a DVD and a version to put on youtube, hopefully both in HD. The video itself is almost 4 minutes long. I also have a vimeo account, if you believe that is a better quality site. Thanks again.

I've had this question before, and I have found you need to export to prores. Then you can put that on bluray disc and online youtube/vimeo etc.

But getting to a blueray disc is another story. I don't know how to get that done on a Mac.

go to Ken Stone's site (google ken stone) and you'll find tutorials there on best exporting to DVD Studio Pro and burning to bluray. if you don't find it repost and I'll find the bookmark on my other computer for you and post the link here. Re youtube/vimeo export and upload, check the specs on each site...you'll find that youtube and vimeo have slightly different specs for best quality so most likely you will want to export two different files, one for each. Compressor has a youtube preset which you can use, and you can also use that job function to upload to your youtube account as part of the same process, very convenient if you want to leave the program processing over night. If you're trying to decide whether to use youtube or vimeo, rather than both, I have found that youtube is a more user-friendly player for people who may not have the newest and best computers. I used to upload rough cuts for client approval to vimeo because it has a simple password-protect process, but after a few horror stories of people having to download from vimeo and try to watch frame by frame, or not being able to watch at all, I've switched to the unlisted function on youtube.
