Nice footage in FCP, but washed out in export

November 30Hits:0

I've tried searching everywhere for a solution to this but I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm working with HD footage and when I export it to quicktime, most of the clips in the sequence become washed out, gain a bit of red color in certain areas, and/or become brighter. First, I thought this was due to the computer display, but after I brought it into DVD Studio Pro and created the DVD, the image looked the exact same way on my TV. Also, I had color corrected using the same TV and the image looked perfectly fine there.
I've tried experimenting with different settings. I tried compensating for the changes before exporting from FCP and by applying filters in Compressor, but it still never looks the same. I also tried changing the gamma correction in FCP's System Settings and enabling the "Final Cut Studio color compatability" option in Quicktime Pro (which did darken the footage a bit), but the image still looks a bit washed out and bright.
I put the DVD into a different computer (a PC) and it looked slightly better. I'm not sure why it looks so bad on my computer and TV.
I've never had this problem in the past, but I didn't have FCP 6, Quicktime 7.2 and wasn't working with HD back then either. I'm sure it probably had to do with the Quicktime update. Does anyone know of anything else that can be done? Has this problem been figured out yet or am I just overlooking something?
Thank you.

The field order of the clips are also set to none.
Here is a picture of the item properties window of one of my main shots:

To make things more interesting, the interlacing follows a pattern. Three frames of non-interlaced shots, and then two frames of interlaced shots. Consistently.
Could this have something to do with my integrated graphics card?
Like I said, when the video is exported to a different format, the interlacing is gone, even though no deinterlacing was applied...
Thanks
