Don't use the File/Export option. Use Composition/Make Movie, then define your output requirements in the Render Queue.
I'd recommend exporting lossless files. Quicktime Animation codec (100% quality) was my fav back in the day. If the files are too large, try Quicktime PhotoJPEG at good-high quality setting. Or, render uncompressed AVI like you have, and use an external encoder to convert to Premiere's requirements. Don't use H264, it's a final delivery codec, and shouldn't be used in your post production workflow.
Otherwise, render to the native resolution and codec you use in your Premiere projects. Premiere won't import your DV file because the resolution is wrong - DV PAL must be 720x576 pixels, regardless of aspect ratio.
Wow, thanks again Andrew. That works.
All my codecs showing up via Composition/Make Movie. Its weird, when I tried using the H.264 codec (Premiere likes H.264 and Lagarith Lossless), the H.264 rendered a strange 800 and something by 720 size instead of the selected and displayed 1280x720 format that the project is in and speced in the Render interface.
But when I used the Lagarith Lossless codec, I get the right size and everything looks good at 1280x720.
Before you wrote back, I was able to convert one of the 770x576 size DV-PAL files to H.264 via the Freemake converter, and then that imported in to my Premiere file... but that is a moot point now that I can get the correct size file with the Lagarith codec.
I would have been able to use the converted 770x576 (properties says 720x576, but it measures out at 770x576) DV-PAL files for this project with the digital clock and get it to import in to Premiere correctly... since I could just place the clock face when blackscreened in my 1280x720 Premiere project, but now I can use the full size Lagarith rendered file for this and other projects from AE that require the full frame of composition.
Thanks so much... your the most efficient forum guy I've ever had answer a question... no restating or misunderstanding... just pure useful answers.
Thanks a trillion,
