I am wondering if anyone has come up with a better solution to this problem. For example, I don't know how Encore determines the field order of files that are imported into it. If it is reading some header information in the ProShow file, then perhaps a tool that allowed me to quickly change the header information without re-encoding the file would be a good solution.
Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so, have you come up with a better workaround?

I've had good luck exporting my DVD productions as an uncompressed AVI. They are big files so you need to make sure you had enough room for them. I convert the AVI files to mpeg in Premiere Pro and then import to Encore.
With Blu-Ray productions I have not found any way to export from Producer other than by mpeg. All the other export formats I've tried either crash or produce corrupt files. I have a MainConcept plugin for Premiere Pro that will convert the Producer mpegs (both DVD and Blu-Ray) to a format that Encore will burn without transcoding. That conversion (called Smart Rendering) does not require decompressing and recompressing the mpeg file so there is no quality loss.
I've started to use this method for both DVDs and Blu-Rays so I avoid the very large uncompressed AVIs for DVD productions. Producer's mpeg output is of very good quality as long as I select the proper settings. But I would have continued to go the uncompressed AVI route if I were not doing Blu-Rays as well. The MainConcept plugin is not cheap!
