Two choices for DVD
Export as MPEG2 DVD and you calculate the bitrate to match the size (single or dual layer) DVD
Export as (regular or widescreen) DV AVI and tell Encore to use automatic transcoding for best fit to size of DVD
I export AVCHD source to Widescreen DV AVI and let Encore do automatic transcoding, based on single or dual layer DVD

I can't remember where you tell Encore to automatically encode
You dont have to. It does it automaticly, the dvd transcode settings are set to Automatic.
if your file is dvd compliant. It is set automaticly to Dont Transcode.
I would export straight to mpeg2-dvd in Premiere. An hour will fit nicely on a SL dvd.
You can go up to 2 hours on a sl dvd but compression will kick in.
