In PE you must first Export the Project of choice as DV-AVI and then Import that into the other Project. You could Export both Projects as DV-AVI and then Import both, should you have a reason to do so.
PrPro will allow you to Import Projects into other Projects, but to PE.
Note: if you are going to do the Export to DV-AVI, make sure to complete all of your edits in the initial Project (the one you will Export from), as re-cutting an assembled DV-AVI can get a bit dicey. For instance should you wish to re-do a Transition in the DV-AVI, you'll have to cut the tail of the first Clip and the head of the next, to get adequate Handles to apply most Transition. All Handles from your original Clips will not be in the Exported DV-AVI. You CAN edit, but just not in the way you could, when you had the original Clips. If you've finished editing, you are good to go.
Thanks Bill. That looks like the answer I needed. Mindful of your advice to be very sure I'm through editing Project A (the one I'll Export from), I'll try this in a couple of days with two 3-min videos.
That's it for now, unless anyone else has supplemental info or another way to write 2 projects to one DVD.
All you need to do is put both projects on the same timeline and then use Stop Markers to break them up. Your viewer will link to each and return to the main menu after each plays -- essentially giving the illusion of having two separate projects.
My free Steve's Tips article on DVD markers tells you how. It's available on the Muvipix.com products page.
