    Why do I get inconsistent file sizes & quality?


      I use Premier Pro 5.0, admittedly not knowledgeable on the tech side. I create projects in a timeline, string sequences into a 30-min movie, and then export from the timeline to "media". In so doing, I create an avi video file. But the resulting video files can vary dramatically in size (500 mb to 8 gb). I now notice that the larger file size gives me a higher quality end result when I author a DVD. I also see that same quality difference when playing back the video file on my computer, before making DVD's.


      I use default project settings. Yet something is making my projects inconsistent, either in production or initial set-up.  What might I be missing?
