    Avoiding Quality Loss

      When I import MiniDV videos into Premiere Elements, the resulting AVI's are of great quality. When I edit in Premiere, even before exporting, the vid quality degrades horizontally. On vertical lines, there are jagged edges. Here's an example:

      Imported from MiniDV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw2O4uBqvXk&fmt=6
      Exported video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkjTIF7vhGw&fmt=6

      Can anybody help me fix this?

      My platform:
      Camera: Panasonic PV-GS80 (minidv)
      Premiere Elements 3.0 (B137 - 9/11/06)
      I've used many different export settings, although they don't really matter because I have the problem before exporting. Here's one set of settings:
      480x320, 29.97fps
      Audio: 128kbps, 44khz, 2 channel 24bit VBR
      Compressed, VBR, 2 pass, peak: 2500kbps, avg: 750kbps, allow interlaced processing, keyframe interval: 4sec
