Saving High Resolution Mpeg-4 files in Final Cut Pro

Last Modified: 2013-08-22
My client wants the mov files from my 5D to be converted into MPeg-4.  Ok no problem, usually I would go through iMovie and save the files that way, but I need to work in FCP to make a few modifications.  The issue is that I can find no way to save the .mov file into mpeg-4 that does not really degrade the file quality.  I want crisp 1080 out the backend not some crapy internet friendly output.  I would even settle for anther file output then import back into imove to output the mpeg-4.  The important thing is that the final image quality is the same as the master file.
