Hi Roger,

When you say "Capturing as DVCPROHD", are you using a capture card? Otherwise you'd simply be bringing the native footage in direct from camera's memory card, which is the best method. DVCPROHD would be 1440x1080 anamorphic, losing quality from the original 1920x1080 source.

Skip the step of exporting your project to H.264, the DVD should be made direct from Premiere, avoiding additional transcode steps/intermediate files.

You can either use Dynamic Link and export your Premiere sequence direct to Encore, or use Adobe Media Encoder to create the "MPEG-2 for DVD" assets direct from Premiere, for use in Encore. In AME, check the box at the bottom for "Maximum Render Quality", this improves the downscale quality.
