Unlike the Publish+Share/Disc DVD and AVCHD, Blu-ray has never had a burn to folder option, just burn to Blu-ray disc.
Many have used the Phantom Burner in conjunction with Premiere Elements to create a disc image for the Blu-ray. I have written about it in several places. Here is the latest.
The above is applicable to Premiere Elements 11 Windows.
You wrote for your autoplay Premiere Elements Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc...
When I played it in my Blu-ray player, it would play but functions such as fast forward and rewind were not available.
Any ideas about what would cause this?
This would seem to me to be a function of your player and its remote, not Premiere Elements. For comparative purposes, have you looked at "fast forward" and your player with an autoplay disc as well as a disc with menus in this instance? Are you using a BD-R or BD-RE Blu-ray disc? What do the instructions for your player say about it fast forward function and Blu-ray discs?
You may not be alone.
Thanks for your response. Yes, I am aware of the Phantom Burner, but I just tried the Toast approach, and it works!
I can burn a disc in PE and then copy the disc in Toast to an image file and save the file for burning later.
I don't really mind burning the initial disc in PE. I just didn't want to render video each time a want a copy. By the way, I
read your post about the disc image function being available for Blu-ray in the Mac version, but in mine it is not available, only to disc.
I'll check into "fast forward" with autoplay vs. menu disc. Also, I noticed there is a firmware update for my Blu-ray player (Panasonic DMP-BD75)
which could also address such problems. I'm using Philips BD-R discs burning with an OWC Value Line Slim external drive (drive mechanism is Panasonic UJ-240).
Thanks for your help!
