Another thought,

If you don’t want to experience loss of quality I recommend you capture the original tapes directly into Premiere Pro using a Digital Converter or Digital Camcorder with Pass Through.

Going from Hi 8 to DVD to a format conversion program to Premiere Pro to AVI to MPEG will due two things, give the program fits and cause some definite quality loss at the end.
