I need help setting up settings in compressor 4 to export to my ps3. I dont care about file size I want the best settings there are?

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    You can export at full 1920x1080


    .mp4 using h.264 works very well, and it'll support full 5.1 sound. No intermediary needed, the PS3 supports .mp4's natively.
