Encore makes the .vob files out of the .m2v files from Premiere.
Pro2 would directly create a simple DVD... Pro3 has Encore3 bundled and will no longer create a DVD by itself, you must use Encore3
Some notes I made for myself a long time ago...
Creating a SIMPLE movie in Encore3
Create or Open an NTSC Project (usual blank is E3 on F: Drive)
FileImport As Timeline, and select AVI File(s)
Drag a Menu to the Project Panel
In the Monitor-Menu Panel, Right Click and CLEAR unused Buttons
In Project Right Click Menu and set as First Play
In Flowchart Drag AVI to the Menu, set End Action to Last Menu
In Monitor-Menu Right Click and hold the new Menu Item 1 and Drag to a new Location, then Right Click and Rename
In Build Window
Change the ISOs Name via the Browse function
Click the Check Project and fix any errors
Last step is to actually build the ISO File
Burn the ISO with http://www.imgburn.com/
Even Empty the DVD-ROM says it uses 526k usual overhead
In PPro, pick the sequence timeline you want to make into a dvd, then
File/Export/Export to Encore.
You will get a new window. Pick direct burn without menus.
As Jerry says ; fast and simple.
Tip: a good way to write PAL project to NTSC DVD ( like I have to do frequently).
Export timeline as an avi and open it in an NTSC Project then FILE>EXPORT> ENCORE
I guess you could import the project and do the same.
If you're afraid to export/utilize Encore...
Pegasus makes a nice DVD authoring suite -- which (ack, don't laugh) actually will encode an MPEG-1 to a DVD format. (Saves time on the export if it's just to test playback).
You can download free software/trial versions on their website...forget the actual web addy, but you can get there via a redirect at www.tmpgenc.com
It's really as simply as exporting an MPEG-1 (Or multi-plexed MPEG-2) and pulling it into the program, build yourself a simple menu, save it, and burn it. Done. Less hassle and overhead (In my opinion) than encore.
don't be afraid....Don't know why anyone would be. Encore is a very good dvd authoring and easy to use.
