If your footage is PAL and if it was captured with the Matrox card (or a Matrox software DV codec) then that could be causing the problem: Normally all DV video is "lower field first". But for reasons best known to Matrox they produce PAL DV video as "upper field first".
The solution would be to adjust the field dominance setting in the Export settings so that it matches the video assets used.
What kind of footage is the original?
Perhaps all you really need to do is select a different field order in ULEAD DVD Workshop ??
Maybe you can try using Encore instead. Since you have no Matrox H/W in your CS3 machine, exporting as AVI and importing into Encore should work fine. Maybe (must be) I'm missing something...
Ruud and Dan
I thank you for the quick reply,
The original footage is NTSC from DCR-VX2100 and TRV-900 Sony cameras, using miniDV tapes. I do not know which field the cameras use...
First I capture in CS3 then I generate an AVI in CS3, then I import this AVI and generate another AVI in Premiere 6.01 which I then use it to burn a DVD. This results in a DVD without "stuttering".
When I capture this MiniDV in the PPr CS3 and create a microsoft AVI I use the CS3 defaults as given in the EXPORT---> Movie Settings.
I tried "de-interlacing" in CS3 and this ameliorates "stuttering" but I loose the clear viewing attribute of the video.
So, I am thinking if I could install Premiere 6.01 in the same PC where I have my CS3 I would have a workable solution.
I neglected to state that I do have some drop-frames, as reported by CS3 (Properties). The "stuttering" occurs whenever I pan with the camera, not when the subject(s) are still or very slow moving. However, I think drop-out frames produce "artifacts" not "stuttering". Is this correct? Because even clips without drop-out frames experience this stuttering.
I thank you

Try instead exporting as a Microsoft DV AVI. Or better yet, export through AME as an MPEG2-DVD file.
I meant to say I export as Microsoft DV AVI
I tried to export AME but I am at a loss what parameters to select.
720X480, 29.97 fps.
Audio: 96kbps, 48KHz, stereo CBR
Compressed, VBR, 2 pass.
Audiences:1, Peak 544 kbps, Avg 544 kbps.
Aspect: DI/DV NTSC (0.9)
Variable constrained, file size 394.08 MB
These selections are a guess... I do not know what to select...
BTW Can I install Adobe 6.01 in the same PC with PPrCS3?
I thank you
If you capture from DV, edit in a DV project and export as DV AVI files, there should be nothing wrong with your final DVD if made in Encore. Since Encore comes free with CS3, use that instead of Ulead, which may be the source of your troubles.
>BTW Can I install Adobe 6.01 in the same PC with PPrCS3?
AFAIK yes you can, but I doubt that it will help with your issue.
I thank you!
You are absolutely right!
For years I used Ulead Workshop with MATROX RT2500 and Adobe Pr. 6.01
and I was very familiar with every aspect of it.
But, I decided this is the time to learn how to use ENCORE and I did. I learned quickly how to use the FLOWCHART and I created a DVD without ANY "stuttering" (when the camera was panning) or any other artifacts, althout I had some clips with "drop-out Frames"
I thank you
I thank you.
I finally decided to learn how to use ENCORE and that has solved my problems.
It's very conforting however, to know that there are individuals, as you and Jim Simon, who are willing to help the rest of us out.
I THANK you.
You're welcome. Glad you got it working.
When you get into Encore, you might want to head over to the Adobe Encore forums. There is a lot of great info there, and Ruud is one of the major contributors.
