burn it to DVD with DVD software it should look better then
converting from AVI to MPEG?

What software to you use for the DVD Authoring(and menu building)

Thanks again,

Variable bitrate will generally give you the quality of a higher bit rate at a lower average bitrate. If you set your "maximum" to 8000, and your "average" to "4000" or so, you can get about 2 hours onto a DVD-R without sacrificing much quality.

Yes, you'll probably get better quality if you export directly from Premiere, at least for those parts of your project that require any rendering, like transitions, titles, etc.

I use Pinnacle Impression DVD-Pro for authoring, and Photoshop to create the menu artwork. It's about $600 on its own, but there are "light" versions available separately and bundled with various Pinnacle hardware.
