Multiple-Disc Project

Apr 13, 2012 3:57 PM

I'm creating a project that will contain 6 messages of a series on 2 single-layer discs. Is it possible to work on both discs in one Encore project? Or do I need to create a separate project for each disc?

    Separate projects. However, you can set up one project (or just set up the menus etc), then do a save as. Finish one in the save as project, and then go back to the original project name and do the other.

    I often do multi-disc Projects, and use Stanley's workflow. I create a separate Sequence for each disc, in PrPro, and then, depending on how many discs I will be creating in the Project, will create a "template" Project in En, with all common Assets, folder structures, etc. Until the Project is complete, I will actually do a Save, and then make a "backup copy" of that Project, in case I forget the next step.

     

    I then Open my template Project, Import the unique Assets, as the appropriate setting, i.e. my Video as a Timeline. At that point, I do a Save_As, so as to NOT overwrite that template, and do my work there. After that disc has been burned, I just Open that template, and repeat for the next PrPro Sequence, representing Disc 2, etc.

     

    I've done up to 17 discs, that way.

     

    Good luck,

    Of course, that was me recommending Bill's Workflow!

    In my case, the Project is not so much a series, but one major Projec, that will go to multiple discs.

     

    Each Sequence is a "scene," or a "chapter," as I think of them, and edit them.

     

    From you description, it would seem that a unique Project for each disc in your series, might be easier to manage.

     

    Now, like I do in En, I also have created a few "template" Projects, with my common elements already Imported, my Bin structure, as I want it, etc., and then do a Save_As. I Open that "template" Project, and much of the work is done. I immediately do a Save_As, so as to not overwrite my "template Project," and then Import the unique Assets into it, for editing.

     

    Good luck,
