I have a Premiere Pro sequence with Encore Chapter markers. Can I export a single file so that the navigation and chapter info is encoded? I am trying to simply share this video, and do not want to share the large amount of files created when I export it as f4v using Encore.
No. You set up the navigation scheme in encore and encore, encodes that information in the manner DVD and BR players understand. This is not done in PPro. You can enter chapter markers in PPro, but you need encore to establish the navigation between those markers.
Problem solved. I can actually create my Encore chapter markers in Premiere, then encode my video in Quicktime. The result -- a movie with a dropdown menu for each chapter! No on-screen nav, but the chapter menu will let you go to the section you'd like to view.
