The answers will be in the details.
So, let us start with the properties of your starting material. What did you create in Magix Edit Pro and what did you export from it....video and audio compression, frame size, frame rate, interlaced or progressive, pixel aspect ratio, file extension, duration? If you are working with interlaced video, do you know if the video has scan order Upper Field First or Lower Field First?
When you took that video into Premiere Elements 11, what did you or the program set as the project preset based on the properties of the source video?
What did you do to the video on the Expert workspace Timeline...effects, transitions, titles?? Did you add disc menus to the project (how many menu markers)?
Let us start here and then move forward in the troubleshooting based on your details.
When you got to Premiere Elements 11 export, what did you select
with a preset for NTSC Dolby DVD or NTSC_Widescreen Dolby DVD?
You’ve lost me in the first paragraph! All I did in Premier Elements was to open “Editor, New Project, Add Media” and clicked on my saved Magix video in “My Videos”. I didn’t set any parameters. Also I didn’t alter or work on the video in any way – no editing, no adding of any material etc. I just burned it then to a dvd. As you can see I am very much the amateur in this field but willing to learn.

Thanks for the follow up and taking the time to ask for further details from me so that you could supply the details needed to work through your issue successfully.
Some way we need to find out the properties of what you brought into Premiere Elements. Taking the settings as is for granted may be a major contributor to the quality of the results.
1. Let us start out slowly. Given that you import your video. You see a thumbnail for the file in Project Assets. If you right click the thumbnail of the file in Project Assets and select Properties, please let us know everything that is written there.
2. When you created this movie in Magix Edit Pro, did you set the settings for the export? Do you have anyway to find out what settings you set for that export?
Let us see how we do with the above and then we can decide what next to get the information needed as easily as possible.
