    DVD Burn

    mp6007

      In Premiere Elements 11, I completed a project and burnt one DVD. It took about one hour. How can I burn more Dvds (of the same project) without taking an hour each?

          a. Take the DVD-VIDEO on DVD  disc produced and make exact copies of it with the burn software that came with your burner.

           

          or

           

          b. Burn to Folder (4.7 GB) or Folder (8.5 GB) and then burn only the VIDEO_TS of that Folder to DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc with 3rd party software such as ImgBurn and determine if the combined time for doing that is less than an hour.

          or

           

          c. Create a disc image using the Phantom Burner and Premiere Elements and take the disc image to DVD disc with 3rd party software.

          I first wrote about that in 2010 elsewhere and have worked with this since.

          See if you gain any time advantage.

          Any questions about this, please ask me here as I do not visit elsewhere at this time.

           

          I am assuming that your computer is optimized. In the burn dialog, what do you typically see for one of these projects regarding Space Required and Bitrate?

           

          We will be watching for your follow up.

           

          Thanks.

            Welcome to the forum.

             

            When multiple copies of a Project DVD-Video are needed, many users will Burn to Folder, then use a burning utility, like ImgBurn, to just make the copies for that VIDEO_TS folder.

             

            The process that PrE goes through, when only one copy is specified, is mostly involving the Transcoding of the Timeline to MPEG-2 DVD, then a bit of Multiplexing, and finally the burning of the disc, itself - usually a small part of the total time.

             

            Good luck,

              Forgot to mention that when one sets up the Burn to Disc, in PrE, they can set the number of copies to create. Again, the majority of the time will be with the Transcode, etc., and then the burning will take much less time. When one chooses to do more copies, that Transcoding will NOT have to be redone - only the burning to disc. One will get a message to put new blank media into the multi-drive/burner, when each burn is complete.

                Hunt,

                 

                That is great alternative if it works. More often than not, it does not when you get above 2 or 3 copies. Very ify.

                  I use either the Burn to Folder route, or Burn Image (NOT available in PrE), and then use ImgBurn, as I can launch several versions of it, to burn to all of my multi-drive/burners, almost as nicely as having a reproduction tower.

                    Hunt,

                     

                    Burn Image (disc image) is available in Premiere Elements BUT in conjunction with the Phantom Burner. After you install the Phantom Burner, is shows up in Premiere Elements and is recognized in the burner location of the burn dialog. The process works off a virtual burner and a virtual disc which can be DVD or Blu-ray disc. The disc image produced can be put on disc in at least Nero or ImgBurn. There are some wrinkles in the perfect plan on the Blu-ray side when you get to Premiere Elements 11, but that is another story for another time.

                      Ah, thank you for that info.

                       

                      Personally, I use Burn to Folder, unless I need to send the VIDEO_TS out, and then "bundle" it into an ISO, treating things a bit like a ZIP, but with a difference.

                        Thanks for your suggestions. I changed the copies to 2, the second burnt in about 15 minutes. That was a simple solution I overlooked/did not know about.  I am new to Pe11, but I think it will really improve my home videos.

                         

                        Thanks

                        Matt

                          Thanks for your suggestions.  I have a learning curve but it Pe11 is interesting.

                              Meantime, have you checked out my free 8 part Basic Training tutorial series? It's a great way to get familiar with the program.
