When I create an MP4 movie file in Premier Elements 11 for viewing on a computer and TV DVD Player, Premier Elements also creates a Layout Folder, a .prel file, a log file, an Encoded Files folder, and an Adobe Premier Elements Preview Files folder - all inside the folder that holds the MP4 movie.
When I burn the MP4 file to DVD using software such as ImgBurn, do I select the whole folder, with these related folders and files inside it, or only the MP4 file itself?
If you plan to produce a playable DVD, you shouldn't be outputting an MP4. You should be using Publish & Share/Disc/DVD to output your DVD.
Burning and MP4 to a DVD disc will not produce it DVD. It will produce a disc with an MP4 on it -- which your DVD player will probably not be able to play.
Many thanks for that, Steve
I am not ready to burn it just right now, so I have not selected Publish & Share/Disc/DVD but chosen instead Publish & Share/Disc/DVD/DVD Folder 4.7Gb on my desktop.
I take it that I can then browse to that folder in image burning software at a later stage and it should be playable on a TV DVD player?
Thanks for your help.
yep. That's exactly how it's designed to work.
