comment High quality ogv files - possible?
Need details, such as specs of the input video format and encoder parameters too. Samples of the input and output will also help.

comment Best transcoding path using Sorenson Squeeze for AVCHD video?
It's not the different goals which point to using MPEG-2 as intermediate, but the lack of horsepower in your editing rigs and the use of Premiere Elements. Pro workflows on Avid Media Composer use Avid DNxHD codec as intermediate, which isn't lossless, and on FCP use Apple ProRes, which also isn't lossless. Premiere Pro works with a lot of formats natively, else a 3rd-party codec like Cineform is used, which also isn't lossless. All that said, do let us know what the station recommends.

comment Best transcoding path using Sorenson Squeeze for AVCHD video?
You have two different goals: 1)editing and 2)archival. Any transcoding except to a lossless codec like Lagarith or HuffYUV or uncompressed YUV/RGB will generate further loss. But these formats won't make for smoother editing on your platform. So, your optimal choice is to keep the source format for archival purposes, and generate intermediate files for editing purposes. For which, my answer above still stands.

comment What's the right project profile for my WVGA60 videos in Premiere Elements 10?
Once I was doing complicated work in Fusion on a comp with 2GB ram. Fusion would always crash during export after a few minutes. I checked the settings in Fusion and noticed that it was set to use 70% RAM. I lowered it to 65% and then all was fine. Since Fusion thought it could use 70% of RAM, it would request that much, but Windows & other apps had reserved in excess of 30%, so it wasn't actually there for the taking. I suggest trying my original uncompressed AVI method but first see what's the largest chunk you can successfully render, and then render the whole thing in chunks of that size.

What's your virtual memory/paging file setting? And during your render, what other apps are running?

You're better off conforming your clips to NTSC DV Wide i.e. 720x480. 720p is a lot of interpolation. Also, I just realized something. So far, I hadn't clicked on the link to your thread at Adobe. Till now I thought the render was getting stuck towards the end since you mention the estimated time left as 5 sec, but it's actually getting stuck at 10% completed. This strongly hints at a hardware bottleneck or configuration issue rather than a codec or file format or preset issue.

So I imported your clip into CS5.5 with project settings as DV 24p widescreen. Added a color curves effect and rendered to NTSC DVD @ 24 fps format. Worked fine. So without knowing more about Elements or your sys config, I can't help you out. FWIW, your cam is essentially recording NTSC DV Widescreen but in square pixels, and with a customized variant of H.264 codec called Ambarella AVC. So as a last ditch effort, you can try project settings of DV 24 or DV NTSC (both widescreen) to see if that works.

One final suggestion for now: use 1280x720 as settings but with 60 fps as timebase. If that doesn't work, upload one of the smaller clips and I'll have a look tomorrow.

No, first, you need to change project settings to match the clips. If you can't do that, open a new project with those settings and copy-paste the timeline. Next, you're still selecting a compression codec "Microsoft Video 1". Instead, it should be 'Uncompressed' or 'None'. I use Pro CS5.5, not Elements, so our options may not match. Also, keep field type to none or progressive.
