I am working on a video for my daughters upcoming wedding. Mostly made up of still pics, using PSE7 and Preimier Elements 7. Most of the video is made of pics of the bride and groom as children and young adults.
I would like to add a short clip with some pics of the wedding ceremony itself, but there is not enough time between the wedding and reception to render the entire file. Is there a way that I can have the main video created, and create a second short clip of the ceremony and tie the two together in a short amount of time?
PRE will always render an entire project so, even if you only add a clip or extra stills, it will still render the entire project before output.There are other options though - search for 'smart rendering' and you will find products that won't re-encode unchanged material.
If you are planning to display the material using a PC (rather than a DVD-Player) you have many more options. For example export what you already have to a .wmv file, export the new clip to .wmv and then create a play list in Windows Media Player or Windows Media Centre to play both clips sequentially. Similarly you could convert to .mov and display with iTunes.
