DVD creation with Prospect/Vegas8/DVD Architect

I would like to burn some DVD's of my 24p footage from my Canon HV20. My normal workflow is to capture via HDLINK with the 3-2 pulldown removal option. I want to create a 24P DVD using vegas 8.0 and DVD architect. I currently use Prospect HD for converting into CFHD.

1. What is the best worklfow? I will play the DVD on a Sony DVD with and HDMI out to my Samsung 1080p HDTV.
2. Normally I convert my 24p footage to 1280 to 720p. Is it best to not resize and keep the CFHD capture at 1440 x 1080 24p before begining any conversion process to NTSC format?
3. Will DVD architect force me to convert to back to interlace (even though I don't want to)? I have seen this in a few threads but did not see a resolution. I don't see any need to go back to an interlace format my viewing preferences in this case.

Thanks!
TB

Your workflow is fine. All SD DVDs are interlaced as there is no 24p mode (weird but true.) However a 24p source will have 3-2 pulldown re-injected with accurate repeat flags so a progressive scan DVD player can correctly restore progressive output.

thanks for the reply... Is there any advantage in terms of visual fidelity/spatial resolution of converting 1440x1080 to 720x480 NTSC format instead of 1280 x 720 to the NTSC format of 720 x 480...

None that you would perceive.
