dont use quicktime conversion.
export using a QT using current settings & then take that exported QT into compressor & make the MP4 file there. This works much better than QT conversion.
Just out of curiousity what do you mean by full HD?
When i hear that i assume it is 1920 X 1080, uncompressed 10 bit.
If it is prores it is compressed by definition & cannot be "full HD".

I get a very nice mp4 out of conversion, you've just got to tweak the settings. Go to mp4, then switch to basic, add h264 compression with a bit rate between 5 and 8000, make the frame size and frame rate you want. Looks great.
9 times out of ten, tweaking the basic settings is a must.

Compressor won't do an hd mp4. The trick is to make an h.264 in compressor than open in mpegstreamclip and do a save as mp4. No quality hit. Thanks to Andy Mees for this tip.

Michael's suggestion is actually better if you need fast and repeatable results.

That is a very useful tip.
Just to let you know, one of the (few) improvements in C4 is that it now will make h.264 MP4 files – up to 30Mbs.

Thanks Russ, good to know.
What's your configuration? I'm sure you're still on fcp7.
So are there any issues having both compressor 3.5 and compressor 4 on the same system? Or conpressor 4 on the same system as fcp7?

I'm using X, C4, and M5 in tandem with FCS 3 on two machines, running 10.7 and 10.6 with no (apparemt) conflicts. Switching among the app;ication versions a lot because there are some things are better or worse (or non-existent) with one version versus the other. And, of course, there is no real interoperability – at least native. (Third party solutions are, however, a viable option.)
The key seems to be to follow the Best Practices doc that Apple put out last spring. I got lazy when I downloaded M5 to my laptop and caused a mess. Uninstalled and did it in the right sequence and all was good. BTW, I chose not to partition.
