If you are totally new to PP and AE, you may be better advised to start reading the manuals and help files and follow some tutorials.
800x600 is not a standard size
NTSC: 720x480 or 720x486 (or 704x480) at 29.97 or 23.976 fps
PAL: 720x576 (or 704x576) at 25 fps
Since an AVI is merely a file name... what is inside that file?

Thank you for your feed back
I created a number of animations in 3DS Max and saved them to AVI files.
I then want to import the AVI files into Premier Pro to add transitions between the various AVI files and then save them all out as 1 single AVI file to deliver to my customer.
I don't understand why the quality of the AVI files is so poor when imported in Prmiere Pro compared with the AVI AE.
I created my Premiere Pro project using the Standard 48KHZ template.
What is the codec used in the AVI files? (See post #2.)
>I created my Premiere Pro project using the Standard 48KHZ template.
Your project settings should match your source. If the input is 800x600 (probably with a Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1) then you should start a custom (Desktop) project with 800x600 dimensions and a PAR of 1.
Thanks for your feedback. I'll try that
The codec I used was Mjpeg compresser. It comes with 3ds Max 64 bit.
The aspect ratio I used was 1.33
Thank you Ruud for all your help.
I have solved the problem. As 3DS Max 64 bit has very limited codecs.
I rendered out an image with a resolution of the 720 x 480 the same resolution as the Premier pro template.
I brought the image directly into to pro and it looked fine. I'll render to images in future and import the image into premier pro and create my AVI's from Premier Pro.
Do you use a codec that you would recommend ?
Thank you again for all your help.
Glad to hear your problem is solved.
>Do you use a codec that you would recommend ?
To transport your video from 3ds Max to PPro I would suggest to give Lagarith (free-/donationware) a try. Lagarith uses lossless compression. Although the files will be quite a bit larger than the M-JPEG ones the video will be free from any compression artifacts or quality loss right until the moment you are ready to export to the delivery format.
Thanks again for all your help Ruud
