Adobe Media Encoder preffered settings

A quick question if I may:

With Premiere Pro, working with imported video from a Canon GL-2, when rendering/exporting the media with Adobe Media Encoder:

As far as the finished/rendered product is concerned,

Is there any meaningful & discernable difference in quality if:

a) Drop frame as opposed to non-drop frame is selected/ticked? Is one more beneficial than the other or preferable and why?

b) Export Settings/Output tab: if the de-interlace option is selected/ticked?

Trying to improve the end result if at all possible.

Thanks for you responses and views.

Drop frame doesn't change anything but the frame count in the SMPTE timecode to synch with the odd timing that television uses, iirc. It doesn't change any content or drop any frames, just changes the numbers on the time code.

If your output is to web or other digital use, you would want to deinterlace, interlace for television and --- I think, somebody check me on this -- for standard DVD video burning. Some programs handle deinterlace better than others, check the threads on the discussions of this problem as to where in the process you want to apply that.../ Battle Vaughan

De-interlace is a highly effective way of reducing your vertical resolution by 50% in Premiere Pro. If you start with standard DV material with 480 vertical resolution, de-interlacing leaves you with 240 vertical resolution. Second, by de-interlacing you introduce stutter in your video. Why anybody would want that, I do not know.
