Do you know Brian Fitzsimmons the grip? He works with Dennis Gamiello a lot. He has been doing larger DVD replication (I think 1000 but not quite sure) where he exports a high quality quicktime file to a hard drive. Then the company creates the mpeg 2 files and the Video TS files from the hard drive file. I believe they were better than what DVD Studio Pro can do. They may be using a hardware encoder instead of just software, but Brian would have the details.
He told me he was happy with their work.
I can get his number if you like.

Anyway, in my limited experience, my DVD has turned out better when, rather than go straight from final cut, I output from final cut or avid to beta or digi-beta and then took that tape somewhere for a "hardware encoding." The images just look more lively. PM me for the details.
