Since you're working with DV-AVI from a miniDV camcorder, you might as well export it "same as project", since that's native, same as the original. Particularly since you're bringing it back into Premiere Elements.
As for the rest of your project, let the DVD burner software and your DVD player handle that. If you start messing with settings, you'll like undo what these things fix automatically for you.
Steve, the only "same as project" setting that I see is for controlling Bit Depth. It doesn't look like it controls the other fields.
The options for Bit Depth are: a) Project Setting, b) 8-bit, or c) Maximum. I have it set to Project Setting.
The fields I'm confused about are "Fields" and "Deinterlace".
The options for "Fields" are a) No Fields (Progressive Scan), b) Lower Field First, c) Upper Field First. I have it set to Lower Field First, although I have no idea why, nor what's best or what selecting other options would do.
Ditto for "Deinterlace Video Footage". It can either be checked or not. I have it unchecked. Again, no idea why, nor what the optimal setting would be.
I'm saying don't change any settings, Ed. Just go File/Export/Movie and let it export your AVI at the default settings.
Oh, OK, understood.
