I had FCP 6 and exported it onto a DVD via the standard DVD studio procedure and it looked awful. I recently upgraded to FCP and did it through the Share feature in FCP 7 and it looks just as bad if not worse.
Use Compressor first with your sequence via sending it to Compressor (right click on sequence in bin and select Send > Compressor), here is a video tutorial for Compressor 4
(720p, you can pause, as it is still a bit fast), but Compressor 3 works too, only that the settings are somewhere else:
Then import the resulting .m2v and .ac3 files into DVD Studio Pro and make your DVD.
