Some Mini-DV camcorders can record to tape in Progressive scan. What I wanted to know is if I go from my camcorder via mini-DV will it still be progressive scan to the Standalone DVD-R recorder, or will it be interlace only? Will it burn in progressive or will it be interlaced.

uhh.. DVD specs allow progressive just fine. 99% of Hollywood dvds are encoded that way too.
As to the original poster, no DVD recorder I know of today does 3:2 pulldown removal and stores that as progressive. Nor are there any that do store the incoming signal at say 30 fps progressive either (not that there would be much advantage to this anyway). If you want this you'll have to do the encoding and authoring on a PC instead. Sucks I know - as the de-interlacing chips used in progressive DVD players are way better than most encoding software for computers these days.
