If you select the option to burn your DVD files to a folder rather than a disc, Premiere Elements will create a VIDEO_TS folder on your hard drive that contains your DVD files.
Most experienced Premiere Elements users select this option rather than burning directly to a disc. If you do, creating copies of your DVD is as simple as burning this VIDEO_TS folder to a disc.
However, if you'd prefer another workflow, you can always contact Adobe and post a feature request.
No it does not. The working files are used to create the VIDEO_TS folder and necessary files, and then deleted. If you need the VIDEO_TS folder on your computer, you can copy that from the DVD, or can Burn to Folder. From there, you can use the free utility ImgBurn to create an ISO image, or to burn other DVD discs.
Thats ashame as I burned direct to dvd but unable to create a bacv
kup from it as the disc was duff I seldom burn direct to disc
and would use imgburn anytime in preference
to adobe Thanks anyway only 6 hours wasted. It really should have an option to delete the files not do it automatically as for asking Adobe you Jest Cheers
Thanks for flipping us off for trying to help, Jon.
Pity you didn't come to us first. We could have helped.
Next time, please make your dissatisfaction known to Adobe. Not us civilians who are just here on our own time, helping out anyone we can.
Well, the reason that Adobe does not save a copy of the VIDEO_TS is that it's a rather large file, and they assume that if a user wanted that on their system, they would do the Burn to Folder instead. I always do that, and then test in CyberLink's PowerDVD. I will then burn an RW disc (for testing only and NOT for delivery), to be tested in all my set-top players, for compatibility. If everything tests OK, and I find no errors, I then do the Burn to Disc with my delivery media, or will burn that VIDEO_TS file with ImgBurn.
Many users do not have enough defragmented free space on their systems to allow for the working files, much less a ~ 4.7 GB VIDEO_TS folder too.
WellI use more or less the same method s as you
bar cyberr link but this was a rush job and alas a wellused Rw for the
test . I appreciate the space issue but a simple
tick box to keep the file or not ( considering it has to make one anyway)
would at least give users the choice.
Jon, please use a spell checker on your posts. You have so many mispelled words that it is a real chore to read.
