Best quality/file size rendering workflow

Apple Compressor sucks! It’s nice to have it render the scene in the background while I still work on edits, but the rendered file sizes are HUGE and the quality is mediocre at best.
The better way to render is to simply “Export as Quicktime Movie” from FCP. The initial export is huge, but using an “Export” function of Quicktime player to h264 reduces the file greatly and the quality, amazingly, is retained. I am tickled pink!
