I've captured 5 short clips from my miniDV camcorder with premier elements. The avi files look like reasonably good quality. When I export to DVD, the 5 minutes of video, the quality is very poor, almost blurry or like it has way too much compression. I exported with the 'fit contents to media' unchecked and the quality setting to High, USA Japan, NTSC.
I took the same clips and burned a DVD from Sonic MyDvd and the quality was much better.
I have the latest premiere Elements 7 on order but I want to know if anyone else has had a similar problem. I seem to remember premiere making better DVDs when I first installed but can't find anything in the settings that has changes.
