Why can't the slide shows without audio also be video assets for Encore? Why do they need to be DVD-ROM content?
Steve, if you mean by DVD-ROM just being able to access other files included on a DVD, it's super simple to do.
Burn out your project files ( your vobs for your video portion ) to a folder on your computer.
Then open Nero, or whatever you use to burn your DVDs out. Copy your e VIDEO_TS folder like you usually do to burn out a disc, and then just drag and drop over the other files needed for your slide shows to Nero or whatever you use, and then burn the disc out. The finished disc will play your video content upon putting it into your DVD player, and you'll be able to play the other content on your computer ( from that DVD disc )
As for Jim's comments, he's much much more advanced than I, and I'd love to hear more about these "assets" for Encore, and what the proceedure is.
Answer to Jim Simon. If possible, I want the slide shows to behave like they would if I used Web Photo Galleries and posted them on the web; namely, I want them to auto-run if that makes sense but more importantly, I want to display thumbnails and let the user click on a thumbnail to view the larger sized photo.
The menu flow would be: (main menu) > DVD-ROM Content > (event name) ... then after you choose an event name, you see a slide show with thumbnails you can click on or possibly run/pause the slide show, or both.

OK, that will require the use of some program, which can be added as DVD-ROM content using Encore.
I'm a newbie to Premier and Encore so can you elaborate?
tab is a box to add "DVD-ROM Content". Here you can add any kind of file you like. These files are obviously only available when the DVD is played on a computer. You can't link to them from a DVD menu, but you could add a short timeline or a menu with a message to the user on which extras the disc contains and where to find them.
Most excellent. Thanks!
How can I get Premier 3.0 to recognize encore dvd2.0 when I go to export? The export to Encore is grayed out.
Not sure why you tagged on to an unrelated thread, but if you got PPro CS3 then you also got Encore CS3. :) If for some reason you would rather use Encore 2.0 you can export either a DV AVI or a DVD compliant MPEG-2 file from PPro to import in Encore.
I assume that the DVD-ROM content will be played from a computer, and not from a set-top player, as it will not be accessible from one's TV.
