Well, you've got the right workflow -- just probably the wrong output.
What not output hi-def MPEGs from each project and combine them into a hi-def master project?
Although, if you're ultimately outputting a DVD (as opposed to a BluRay disc), all the effort to keep things in hi-def might not matter anyway, since your final product is only standard DVD.
(BTW, if you guys need any guidance for using the program, my book is still available on Amazon.)
So if I output MPEG there won't be any quality loss? Great!
Well, we're also considering borrowing a BluRay burner and making some copies as well, so HD is still important.
Thanks a ton!
Just make sure, when you choose the MPEG output option (Share/Personal Computer/MPEG) that you also choose from the Presets drop-down a hi-def output setting, if you plan to keep your workflow in hi-def.
is there no way to combine multiple timelines into one timeline? this would be very handy-dandy.
the workflow described above is ok i guess, but it is sure time-consuming and hard-drive-consuming to have to export each project individually.
i'm pretty sure that in a previous version of PE, i was able to copy work from one project's timeline and paste it right into another project's timeline...
I should mention that I'm currently using PE 4.0. And I've tried to copy-paste and cut-paste from one project to another, without success...
The easiest way to combine outputs from one or more projects is this:
Otherwise, many have had success cutting and pasting between projects using a program called Clipmate.
If you try Clipmate, make sure you read all the posts on using Clipmate:
For example, you can't copy transitions. There is also a problem copying audio.
