How best to Downconvert

Friends,
1. Able to ingest to FCP Studio Crossgrade from XHA-1 (albeit with some "Unable to locate Time Code" error messages) - No TC breaks on tape...hmm.
2. Able to edit (albeit with my arrow keys - previous/next frame buttons still not working!) Trashed prefs - still don't work...anyone else have this FCP problem?
3. Now need to downconvert for DVDStudioPro output - HOW? What is my File-Export workflow? "Using Compressor"? If so, then what settings?
Thanks - Happy New Year!
- Jim

There's a PDF you might want to check out on the Apple site http://www.apple.com/pro/resources/

It's called "Final Cut Studio Workflows" - includes a section on File Exporting using Compressor's high quality scaler to downconvert HD to SD.

Hope this helps,
