Can FCP output raw uncompressed DV video from an edited project to a tape deck? If not, what is the next closest uncompressed format? The purpose is to get my final edited sequence inserted into an Avid editing system as part of a larger documentary.

I'm no expert, but from what I could find out, DV video on tape (DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50) always has some kind of compression applied.
I am wondering how FCP recognizes the tape export codec when you do File --> Edit to Tape...? That might be some detail to look into.
I suspect your uncompressed options will not involve tape but instead creating a file on a hard drive. You'll need to find out what file formats the Avid system can import, and if it needs a PC formatted drive or can it handle a Mac formatted drive.
Here are the file ideas. Under FCP --> File --> Export you could use Compressor options or QuickTime options:
Using Compressor.. --> Advanced Format Conversions --> 8-bit Uncompressed NTSC.
Using QuickTime Conversion... --> QuickTime Movie --> Settings --> Compressor Type: Uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.
Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
