    De-interlace 1080i before exporting to DVD?

      Should I de-interlace my DVCPRO HD 1080i timeline before I export to progressive DVD? Should this eliminate the "noise" artifacts in some images? Does this kill my resolution?

      Thanks,

          Well, if you want a progressive DVD from an interlaced source then some form of deinterlacing is required.

          I seriously doubt it... maybe I don't fully understand your meaning here.

          Yes. Premiere's deinterlacer sucks. You should have a look at my HD -> DVD Workflow. Although the "basic" example outlined on the page is for 1080i -> interlaced DVD, the "advanced" workflow referenced at the bottom of the page can do progressive output also -- and will get you much better quality in general.
