Here's how I do it.
1. In PP, turn off the eyeballs of your video tracks. This makes them black and very quick to encode.
2. Export out using an MPEG2-DVD preset.
3. Bring the resultant .m2v and .wav files into Encore and create your timeline from them. That timeline will have all the chapter markers.
4. In Encore, do a Replace Asset on the 'black' .m2v with the correct version (just be very sure the new version always has a different file name than the one you're replacing). Viola, video transocded outside of PP with chapter markers.
Thanks, Jim, now I remember I did it that way one time I was in the same predicament, so thanks for refreshing my memory.
Now, is there a way to export these chapter markers to some sort of text file so I can use them in other authoring programs if I want to?
However, the file that contains the chapter markers is the .xmpses file.
Great tip, and thank you for sharing. Glad that I read this Reply, before just saying "No."
