What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
I do not know to what you are referring when you say 8pi and 40pi. Just what forum recommended that and for what?
Here is the Premiere Elements story.
You can burn your HD Timeline content to AVCHD format on DVD disc, using a regular DVD/CD burner. The resolution of that product could be 1920 x 1080 pixels 16:9 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second. But, AVCHD format on DVD disc cannot be played back on a regular DVD player. It needs player that supports AVCHD format on DVD disc. If you are working with Premiere Elements earlier than 11, you go to Share/Disc/AVCHD disc. If you are working with Premiere Elements 11, 12, or 13, you go to Publish+Share/Disc/AVCHD disc.
If you select the DVD-VIDEO format on DVD disc choice, you have a lower resolution product. This end product can be played back on a regular DVD player.
If NTSC setup, you are looking at 720 x 480 4:3 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second (standard) and 720 x 480 16:9 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second (widescreen).
In the case of widescreen, a 16:9 flag stretches the 720 x 480 to 856 x 480 pixels for display after encoding.
Blu-ray is Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc (1920 x 1080 pixels 16:9). And, this format needs a blu-ray player.
Keep in mind, the disc capacity of the DVD disc...
DVD disc labelled 4.7 GB/120 minutes), in reality that 4.7 GB = 4.38 GB
DVD disc labelled 8.5 GB/240 minutes), in reality that 8.5 GB = 7.95 GB
With the HD format on the DVD disc, disc capacity is a major consideration.
Please clarify your situation and requirements, and then I can fine tune the reply further.
Thanks for your prompt response. I have Adobe Premier 12. My videos are
90 minutes on average, and I have been burning onto DVD-R 120 minutes, 4.7
GB. I am using a Dell computer with Microsoft Windows 8. I have tried the
AVCHD and learned through trial and error I cannot play back the video on a
DVD player. I usually burn the video onto the DVD and the resolution is
low. Is there any way to get a HD resolution burning on to a different
type of disc? Also when I try to publish to social website it is also low
resolution. Are my HD videos doomed to be low resolution with whatever
media I try to publish onto? I hope I have provided the information you
needed. Thank you.

You have explored the DVD-VIDEO widescreen on DVD disc, and you find the resolution 720 x 480 too low, but it can be played on a regular DVD player.
The AVCHD format on DVD disc allows for higher resolution, 1920 x 1080, but that does not play back on a regular DVD player.
If your goal is something that will play back on a regular DVD player, all the results are going to be unacceptable or do not apply.

VCD on CD disc (some regular DVD players)
JPEGs on CD
Premiere Elements offers burn to Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc, but then again you would need a blu-ray player.
You are going to need a blu-ray player or one of these special "media players" which accepts your format on disc, USB Flash Drive, or memory card. In that type
of scenario, you would export your Timeline to a file which you transfer to disc, USB Flash Drive, or memory card for playback on a player that will support the
format on the media.
90 minutes uploads of Timeline content (SD or HD) with a 90 minute duration is not possible from the Premiere Elements Social Websites/You Tube Feature
since its restriction is 2 GB/15 minutes.You could export your Timeline to a HD file and upload that file to YouTube with one of its extended accounts which
can only be use at its website. I am not sure of the restrictions imposed by Vimeo or Facebook.
But there are HD presets for the Social Websites, so it is not clear what you meant by
Also when I try to publish to social website it is also lowresolution.
They all have HD presets. So, that comment needs more explanation from you so that I can help there.
Have you seen the YouTube article on Advanced Encoding
Please let me know if you need clarification on the above.
Add On..Please specify just what players are available to you.
What is the source of your video clips? If they are standard definition to start with, PRE cannot upscale them to HD.
What are your project settings?
When you first import your clips to the timeline are there any coloured lines running the length of the video (in Expert mode)?
Please answer ATR's question about what you mean by 8pi and 40pi.

If this post or another user's post resolves the original issue, please mark the posts as correct accordingly. This helps other users with similar trouble get answers to their questions quicker. Thanks.
Again thanks for the response. So you are stating that I will not be able
to burn the same high resolution video I can view on my computer on to a
DVD for replay through a DVD player. Is this correct?
I have published a shortened advertisement video to YouTube- say 5 minutes-
and it is low quality. Is this the norm? This is what I meant by “When I
try to publish to social media website it is also low resolution.” he
SOCIAL MEDIA option in SHARE+PUBLISH is what I am referring to here. Is
there a way to upload clearer, higher resolution videos. I believe that if
my YouTube videos are low resolution customers will shy away from buying
the videos, even if I offer the option to download the HD videos directly
off the webpage.

Thank you for your reply.
You cannot burn your high resolution video that you can view on your computer to an AVCHD on DVD disc
that will replay through a regular DVD player. But players are marketed under a variety of names with
different support opportunities. One manufacturer may call its product MultiMedia Player, media player, Blu-ray player,
etc.The bottom line is the specifications for each of the players that are candidates for the playback of
the AVCHD format on DVD disc or the format of interest.
If you upload your HD (1920 x 1080) video to YouTube, YouTube converts the video to flash format, but it goes up as the HD video.
But, beware. Look at the YouTube viewing setting when your uploaded video is playing back. The YouTube default is not
HD. It might be 360p, 480p. If you have a 1080p video, then before the YouTube playback, you should be looking
at the video with the YouTube 1080p HD setting for best viewing. That is a YouTube matter.
Best results depend on you
a. setting up the Premiere Elements project preset to match the properties of the source media. That means, if
you have 1080p source, you (manually) or the project (automatically) set the project preset at
or the PAL counterpart, depending on your region need.
b. if you upload your video to YouTube using the Premiere Elements feature, there is a HD preset, but you cannot
customize it.....if you need customization, then you can export your Timeline to a file...in this example
with Presets = MP4 H.264 1920 x 1080p30 or PAL counterpart
and then customize the preset under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of that preset. In increase quality, you might look to increase
the Bitrate under Advanced Button/Video Tab settings - without compromising the file size.
Then you would upload that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
All of the above are factors that need looking into in order to determine the why for what you wrote
I have published a shortened advertisement video to YouTube- say 5 minutes-
and it is low quality
Often SD video upscaled to HD can present poorly. But, you are dealing with a HD workflow so that should not be introduced into the matter. The setup of the project and
the properties of the source video are important, but let us start with the above and rule in or out those considerations first.
Thank you. As always, any clarification needed, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank You for your help. Since I do not have a great option with burning
the videos to DVD do you recommend an online service that I may upload my
videos and be able to sell the downloadable version to customers?

I do not have any recommendations for selling your uploaded HD videos online. Never been there and done that.
Have you done a Google Search using the title "Selling Uploaded Video? When you do, several choices appear. Top of the page is
usually Vimeo On Demand (I mention that for informational rather than promotional purposes).
Have you given thought to learning how to create your own web site and distributing your videos from your own web site?
I have never been there and done that. You may want to do a Google Search on that topic.
