Canon XHA1-Aspect-Premiere 2.0- Procoder 2 for DVD

I think I have found my HDV to DVD workflow. Took a bit of wrangling, but here goes.
Canon XHA1 shot in 50i (cos it was destined for TV & cutaways were on a Sony HC3, didn't want it to look too different, would it have?) into Premiere with the help of Cineform's Aspect v4. Edited and just a tiny bit of colour balancing between the cameras using the Aspect tools (which show up realtime - and dont require a render). Outputted to Medium (as with ingest) Cineform AVI (don't do it from the timeline straight to Canopus Procoder 2 - takes forever - any ideas why this might be?) as said into Procoder - which recognises it perfectly as 1440x1080i. Choose DVD Mastering quality. Change it to output 16x9 (rather than 4x3 letterbox) and ask it to do 2 pass VBR Make sure it is Upper Field First in the interlacing.
Open Sony Architect - make 16x9 Menu. Point to files just made. No encoding just menu building and creating VOB's pretty fast, plus recognises each time you change something so you don't recreate a whole disc everytime... Play it on 32" LCD in lounge - see the quality of your camera (even if it is MPEG2) for the first time! No tearing on fast movement or snow in the dark areas. Really happy.

Next I'm going to do some thing with my SGPro2

Just thought I would share as had tried TMGENc express, SUPER and direct from premiere using the Main Concept- oh and DVD Architect direct from HDV placeholders in project. And I reckon this is the one.
