I'm using a pre-loaded DVD template to create a DVD with a Title menu, scene menu, etc. Is there any option for me to save this format for use on my computer only?
Instead of burning this to a DVD, I'd like to save the final product as a file with the same function as the DVD (usable menu, skip to set scene markers, etc). Does that make sense?
The idea is to not have to burn 10+ DVDs, but save these files to a flash drive and access them through a computer or TV.
I'm using Premiere Elements 12.
Premiere Elements 12/12.1 on what computer operating system?
Assuming Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit for the moment and DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc....
1. You could consider Publish+Share/webDVD which is really a flash file that comes with disc menu of your choice.
The saved folder from the process can be played back on the computer using Foxfire and Internet Explorer. I do not see you playing that back on TV.
2. In Premiere Elements, if you export Timeline content to file saved to the computer hard drive, menus are not included.
Please review the above. I am think about this some more.
