The best way is Nero.
It's totally sucks: Pr Pro 3 doesn't support VCD, SVCD.

Ruud answered your question already. VCD uses highly compressed MPEG 1 technology which Premiere Pro
Do not forget Premiere PRO is a PRO application and nobody delivers high quality broadcast/corporate work on VCD, it is all DVD. The only reason to use VCD is because it is still a few cents cheaper...
And also keep in mind that Premiere Pro is an *editing* application, not an authoring application. Like DVDs, VCDs and SVCDs need to be authored.
Howard and Ruud are correct - PPro will export to MPEG1 that can be used on a VCD.
>nobody delivers high quality broadcast/corporate work on VCD, it is all DVD.
So why the Flash integration then? ;)
>Like DVDs, VCDs and SVCDs need to be authored.
'Authoring' an (S)VCD is about as much work as encoding a compliant mpeg file (something Adobe's Media Encoder shouldn have any problems with) and then burning it to a CD with the proper settings. Of course if you need 'fancy' menus its a bit more work but hardly what I'd call 'authoring' ;)
>and then burning it to a CD with the proper settings...hardly what I'd call 'authoring'
What *would* you call that process, then? Keep in mind that a DVD with no menus still has to be "authored". Why? Because authoring involves "burning it to a [DVD] with the proper settings".
If you would prefer another word like "creation" or "implementation" that's fine.
My point is that you need an application designed to make a legal (S)VCD; you can't just drag and drop your mpeg1 or mpeg2 file onto a blank disc and call it (S)VCD. And I'm pretty sure you understood my point, even if you didn't like my use of the word, "authoring". ;)
