DVD Sync Problems

Okay I have searched the net and the forums here and I cannot seem to find an anwser to my problem. I have some mini DV footage I shot with my XL1s. I captured the footage and edited down 3, 3 minute clips. I rendered them out as avi files. I open the files in windows media and they played fine. The first time I burned them to a disk I used roxio's DVD Maker thing. When I played the dvd the first maybe 5 seconds were cut off and then the audio and video were out of sync. This happened for maybe 5-10 seconds then they went back into sync. I thought it was Roxio and so I got Encore and tried it again and when I previewed the dvd in Encore I had the same problem. Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong??

Thanks.

To which AVI codec did you render? If it is something like DiVX/XviD then you
will have such problems. Either render out to MPEG-2 inside your NLE (if it can
do this) or render out to DV AVI or uncompressed AVI.

Avi

I tried rendering out to DV Avi and uncompressed Avi. Both were giving me that problem.

Try rendering to MPEG-2 directly in your NLE. See how it looks then. What
NLE (editing software) are you using?

previewing it on the computer with the dvd authoring app could be the problem... i'm no dvd authoring expert, but i've never seen a authoring app that previewed correctly... about all they are good for is making sure the links and menu are functional.

burn it to a disk, play it back on a couple of real dvd players(not computer dvd players), and let us know what happens.
