I share skim's frustration - and for those that say - go read the manuals - please check them before you say that!
The video (vid0257) pointed to by the cs4 encore help file does indeed show an export to encore option in premiere pro (though the speaker is obviously referring to cs3). My cs4 PPro can dynamic data link to encore but not 'export to' - and there are no options similar to the video mentioned above OR the other turorial videos I've found so far. (The 'new project' options - but without most of the options shown in the video.)
So please - when a newbie asks for help, don't send him the wrong place simply because you think Adobe should have covered it there.
Harm - thanks for pointing out that the original post was in the wrong forum. (Thanks to the mods for fixing this.)
Though that was rather obvious, my intent was to encourage those that replied to check that their answers are valid before posting them. Many replies (including in this post) might be helpful but alas are not as a result.
Perhaps you're saying that Adobe is doing much better in CS5 documentation and one can safely say 'RTFM.' I hope so. Much of the learning curve steepness is exacerbated by tutorials that aren't 'version clear' or help documents that have old (and now incorrect) information in them.
The forums are a wonderful tool to help - thanks to all.
or help documents that have old (and now incorrect) information in them.
We are now blessed with an Adobe employee, who is the Master of Help. He's working to try and improve it. I will admit that having addenda instantly added is a big plus.
As for the tutorials, I try to point out any version conflict and make it clear to the OP that some interpolation will be required. Sometimes, they understand that, and can "read between the lines," but sometimes, they get so bogged down, when a button has moved over a few icons, or a name might have been changed, that they find them useless.
As for the sub-forum, where this originally resided, I feel certain that we'll find many more, that escaped getting moved, when the new CS5 sub-forum was created. When those "zombies" arise, I am sure that our tireless MOD's will jump on 'em quickly.
