DO I ABSOLUTELY NEED ENCORE TO EXPORT MY FOOTAGE TO DVD????
A DVD to play to a TV requires the files be "authored" to DVD specifications. That is part of what Encore does. You can't simply copy/burn files to a DVD.
WHEN I CLICK ON ENCORE APP HERE TO "TRY IT" THE APP DOES NOT COME UP.
Do you have the cloud? Have you installed Encore?
HI STAN...THIS IS GOOD INFO YOU GAVE ME. But, that's just it. I do have the CREATIVE CLOUD MEMBERSHIP, BUT FOR SOME REASON IT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO TRY ENCORE. I mean... I DON'T EVEN SEE THE APP. I literally had to go to search and type in ENCORE, but when I CLICK ON "Try" it just takes me back to a listing of all of the APPs currently available, which again, shows me PR, AE, all sorts of ADOBE APPS, but NOT ENCORE. ANY INSIGHTS?
You are using Premiere (cloud version) and it is activated; yes?
If so, Encore is there and should work. You just have to find it! Start -> Programs, and look in all adobe things...
Hi Stan, You are 100% RIGHT! I FOUND ENCORE! However, now I am running into another problem... I exported my project into ENCORE a few minutes ago. I rendered the file, made sure my specs are all there as DVD MPEG-2, but it is telling me the PROBLEM is TILE REMOTE NOT SET and END ACTION NOT SET. This is NOT a problem for me, because this is simply a ROUGH CUT of the film that I need to BURN on the DVD-R disk so that I can get the ROUGH CUT over to my MUSIC SUPERVISOR to REVIEW for study where MUSIC should be placed on the film. What am I doing incorrect? When I hit IGNORE to BUILD it keeps telling me to put in my DVD MEDIA and when I do it keeps opening my DVD slot on the computer. ANY HELP?
it is telling me the PROBLEM is TILE REMOTE NOT SET and END ACTION NOT SET.
You can ignore the title remote not being set. To set it, select the Flowchart tab, click on the disk, then to the right, select an option for the "Title Button."
For the End Action, select your timeline in the project panel or the timeline panel. In properties to the right, set an option for the end action.
THANKS STAN YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
Hi Stan, OK... I'm TRANSCODING (in the building process) this is taking very long, however, the YELLOW BARS are moving, but very, very slowly... Is this NORMAL process?
"Probably." Depends on length of the video, machine power, type of source footage/effects applied in Premiere, etc.
If this round doesn't complete, use a 10 minute test segment to see how long that takes.
I think it is a good idea to use "transcode now" before building to separate the (usually longer) transcode of assets step from building the disk.
GOT IT! OK... I WILL REMEMBER THAT TO USE "TRANSCODE NOW" IN THE FUTURE.
You mentioned earlier that you had rendered the video as DVD MPEG-2. If that was the case, it should not need transcoding again in Encore, unless you altered the length of the clip in Encore.
From Premiere, you can use File > Export > Media and then in Adobe Media Encoder, choose "MPEG-2 DVD" as the Format, and use an appropriate preset for your type of footage. You may need or want to adjust the bitrate depending on the length of your program, otherwise the rest of the options should not need changing. The resulting audio and video clips can then be imported into Encore using "File > Import > As Timeline", and be sure to select both clips at once when doing this. Any DVD chapter marks you had placed in Premiere will remain intact using this method.
When you Build in Encore, it should only Transcode the audio (to Dolby) which takes just a minute or two usually. The video should not Transcode, since you created a DVD-legal format already.
The other method from Premiere is to use Dynamic Link to Encore, which automates the process from Premiere to Encore, but most folks on this forum are not huge fans and prefer the manual control I described. If you pre-render the MPEG-2 DVD file, then once you get into Encore, you can have a finished DVD in your hands in literally a few minutes, since the bulk of rendering was already done.
If you can tell us about your computer (Mac or PC, what specs?) and your video source format, we can offer some estimates of how long these steps ought to be taking, and maybe offer a few more workflow tips as well.
Also, as matter of netiquette, posting in ALL CAPS is the same as shouting. Welcome to the forum ;-)
