Poor DVD Quailty

I have a concert video about 1 hour long that I did in Premiere 2 and then encoded in Encore that the video looks very strob like. The picture quality is good, but when there is motion I am seeing a lot of stobbing. Is it better to export Mpeg 2 from Premiere or do I let Encore do it? Also what is the difference between AVI and DV.AVI?
Thanks for the help
Kevin

Let Encore handle it unless you know exactly how to encode an MPEG-2 file for DVD-Video.
AVI is just an acronym for Audio Video Interleave, and there are as many variations on this as grains of sand on a beach.
What I would recommend is exporting from Premiere Pro as a DV AVI - around 13Gb/hour - and letting Encore handle the MPEG-2 encoding in Automatic mode.

Your description of "Strobing" could well be - if it is what I think it is - a problem caused by a mismatched field order.
What was the source of your file? Was it captured from DV cam?
What settings did you use to export from Premiere?

I captured DV transfered from from Beta and DVCPro. My export was DV.AVI, I didn't change any of the settings. Do I need to set the field order on the source video, similar to AE? Any suggestions on the AVI settings.
Thanks
Kevin

AVI settings.
You have 2 choices here.
DV AVI or uncompressed.
I would use DV AVI personally, and let Encore handle transcoding to MPEG-2 automatically.
Are you running Premiere Pro 1.5.1 or 2.0? (This is actually quite important)

I'm using 2.0, I did figure out what the problem was. For some reason the settings were set to 24p. I changed it back to 29.97 and all was right. Thanks for the assistance.
