The standard DV AVI project uses Interlacing. Because the standard DV camera shot with interlacing. Perhaps there is a problem with the way you are playing it back? Some programs see 720X480 and assume interlacing.
Why are you exporting to DV AVI? There are not many reasons to do that, so perhaps you might be happier with a different workflow. Especially with a different codec. What are you going to do with the file after you export it?
Thanks for the reply. I am new to Premiere. What I need to do is have a .mov file rendered out in a standard def version and also in a high def version. I am not familiar with what works best. But I can see that my source file is listed as 1920x1080, 23.976 progressive. Can you suggest a better codec or workflow. I would like to render out at the highest quality possible. I rendered out using DV AVI because I thought it would be the highest quality--but I was not sure. I am finding that VLC player works the best for checking my renders. But I also checked quicktime and media player to see if there was a difference.
I also renderd a version using the settings for Quicktime, NTSC DV 24p widescreen, 720x480, and that looked very interlaced too.
What will the SD version be used for?
It will be used for playing in a dvd player.
Why not use:
a) export to MPEG2-DVD (with MRQ on) and import the results into Encore as timeline for the video and asset for the audio, or
b) use File/Adobe Dynamic Link/Send to Encore and let Encore do the encoding?
I did that, using mpeg2 setting. And that worked. I guess my mistake was
using the AVID codec which was for interlacing. I have been using h.264
encoding for .mov and having good results too. No interlace problem. Though
ultimately the project will be for DVD, I am also needing to make it so
that it can be uploaded on the internet. The mpeg2 setting separated my
audio track from the video track--which wouldn't work for upload to the
Thanks for all of the help!

In this case, "also" means exporting twice, once for DVD authoring and once for the Internet, as the needs of each file are different.
