Using iMovie, for one, is capturing your files to a codec other than one FCP wants to work with. You would be better off dragging and dropping the files from the camera to a folder on an external drive and converting the footage with MPEG Streamclip to whatever codec you want to work in.
Using iDVD to compress and author the dvd takes away any control you have over the compression settings for the project.
You'd be well off getting a FCP training book from someplace like Peachpit Press, or a training dvd from someone here or out there who produces them.
