I recently moved from CS3 to CS5.5. Back in CS3, I would select "work area only" when exporting to Encore. I can't find a way to trim to only the required area of my timeline.
It's a problem, as my timeline is very very long, and I only want to export a short piece for a test BluRay disk.
I've gone throught the help and online, but still can't find a way to only export a sub-section of my Premiere CS5.5 timeline.
Would really appreciate help, or a pointer to a help source.
Are you exporting to Encore (method is same as always), or sending to Encore (dynamic link, in which you can only send a whole sequence). If the latter, nest your sequence into a new sequence, and reduce so you have only the part you want to send to Encore in the new sequence.
Edit: by same as always, it may have changed a bit. When you export, look to the source tab on the left of the export window, and the "source range" at the bottom.
Still dont get it.
So I go Fle>Adobe Dynamic Link ? Per your message, no.
Or file>export>media? I can output a mv2, then open encore, import, but this seems like an extra step.
Or am I mssing this completely?
I take your answer to be that you are sending to Encore from Premiere, either using the direct frm Premeire to burn, or starting an Encore project from Premiere.
And, yes, CS3 would do what CS4 through CS6 can not do: send only part of a sequence to Encore.
Thanks. I've spent hours and hours looking for this. Wish Adobe had asked me before changing it. I often burn sub-sections of my timeline when working on projects, and really wish they had kept the "burn work area" function for discs.
