          Can you describe your situation in a little more detail, Jim?

           

          What form are these "project chapters" in?

           

          Combining any two clips is as simple as placing them on the timeline and then outputting the result.

            I have videos with separate chapters on my computer.

            I want to burn them on a Blu-Ray disc. I was told

            that unless the disc is RW I will be able to burn one

            chapter only. So I want to combine all my chapter's

            so I can put them on one disc.

             

            Thanks

              Whether or not your disc is RW, you can burn a BluRay with one or as many chapters as you want.

               

              Are we using the word "chapters" the same way, Jim? What do you consider a chapter?

               

              I'm referring to individual scenes that you can link directly to from the main menu. And a disc can have up to 25 of them.

                Steve;

                 

                I purchased a LG BE14U40 external Blu-ray burner. I have two chapters in

                my saved projects.  I burned my 1st chapter onto a blue -ray disc and it

                burned on great. I played it on my Blu-ray player and the picture was fantastic.

                 

                However when I go to burn on my 2nd chapter premier elements shows disk is

                not blank. So I clicked on properties and it showed plenty of available space.

                The program will not let me burn my 2nd chapter onto the Blu-ray disc.

                 

                Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions your help will be appreciated.

                 

                Thanks

                 

                Jim

                  Jim,

                   

                  An authored BD (Blu-ray Disc), is not a multi-session disc. Each session closes the disc, so no more material  can be written to it.

                   

                  To combine your two Chapters, you will want to do that in PrE, in a new Project, then author/burn that combined Project to another BD.

                   

                  Good luck,

                    In accord with what Hunt has said, the BD-R is not a multi-session disc in the Premiere Elements Blu-ray burn to. The disc is finalized. Premiere Elements will allow you to use a BD-RE that has been written to, but it overwrites all that is on the disc already before it encodes to the new Blu-ray disc format on the Blu-ray disc.

                     

                    As far as I have ever heard, the Blu-ray disc can have only on BDMV Folder per Blu-ray disc in the Blu-ray Disc Format on Blu-ray Disc. Similarly for DVD-VIDEO with its structural component of the VIDEO_TS Folder, there can be but one VIDEO_TS Folder on the DVD-VIDEO Format on that one DVD disc.

                     

                    These situations are not unique to Premiere Elements and go the basics of the formats.

                     

                    Does your presentation of your videos require Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc? What does your Blu-ray player support for playback? I am wondering if you might export your Timeline to a AVCHD file and then transfer that to a media type (USB 2.0 Flash Drive) that you Blu-ray player supports.

                     

                    Just some thoughts.
