    What was it shot on? DV?

    If so, export it as that, if not, export it at whatever the source is/was, no point in adding an additional transcode step.

    Did I understand your question correctly?

    DV quality is fine, however, the size is 17GB, is there any way of compressing it down in quicktime but still retaining the high quality?
    Thanks

    You could try the MotionJPEG B codec. If your source is progressive use the PhotoJPEG codec.
