If I understand you correctly, you have a sequence with the footage of location A, call that Sequence A.
Then you have a different sequence with the footage from location B, call that Sequence B.
And so on for C, D, ...
Put all these sequences into a new sequence, the master sequence, where you have Sequence A, B, C, D, ... butt to butt.
Place your chapter markers at the beginning of Sequence A, B, C, D, ... and export to Encore.
In Encore make the menus to play A, B, C, D, ...
Let's call Harm's method the "single timeline" method. And yes, that will work fine. The issue with it is how to play chapters (to plan only location A) without the play continuing on to the next location. The traditional method with a single timeline uses overrides (that cause many users fits) or with a relatively newer option, single chapter "Chapter Playlists."
An alternative is to do what you have been doing before. Export each sequence as its own file (use the MPEG2-DVD format). Import to Encore as timelines. Create a "Playlist" and put all the timelines into it. Your "Play All" button goes to this playlist. To play one location, link that button to that locations timeline.
You can also use dynamic link, but it causes problems for some users/purposes.
I constantly use Stanley's method. For me, each Sequence is a "scene," or "chapter."
Those work perfectly in Encore, and I use the Playlists, just as he mentions.
Thanks. I’m working with a tech support guy right now who is leading me through this method.
