I have an edit in FCP I'm trying to create an AVCHD from. I know you can technically do this in FCP, but considering I have a BR drive in computer the only option I have is to export to BR, not AVCHD.

So I tried taking the project into Compressor and, following Apple's documentation, I went ahead and tried to create a Quicktime H.264 file that is compatible with AVCHD. After several hours of rendering I got a .264 file, I then tried to mux it with my AC3 file. The problem is that the video is blocky and stutters a lot... it's unwatchable.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to create a proper .264 file in Compressor? The work around I have right now is to create an MP4 file which then needs to be transcoded again for AVCHD. That's an extra step and encoding time I'd like to avoid.
