Final Cut Pro Question

This is a question for the pros out there who use Final Cut. We want to export a file from Final Cut to a DVD, but it appears that Final Cut cannot tell us exactly how much compression will be necessary. We need Final Cut to tell us the exact file size so we can be certain it will fit on the DVD. We've had to re-export several times. Final Cut would abort because the compression level we set would not fit on the disc. We had to guess. That's not reasonable. Surely Final Cut can tell us how big a file will be after compression so that we know it will fit on the disc without guessing and doing it over and over. I say "we" because my assistants are doing this for me. I know nothing about Final Cut.

Thanks for your help...
