Have just finished editing my first movie in Premiere Pro 1.5, created an MPEG2 using the Adobe Media Encoder set on 'PAL DV 4x3 High Quality 7Mb CBR 1 Pass' (55 minute movie to fill a DVD) and created the DVD with Encore - the quality of the DVD was comparable to VHS cassette!!!
I then tried exporting the movie as an AVI and used Encore to transcode to the same setting - same result!!!
Can anyone please point me to the best setting to get good quality DVD's please.
