    Premiere Elements Pro 5.5  How to Burn a DVD

    BonKol Level 1

      I am a newby in this world.

      Since a 2 months I bought  Pro 5.5 and made my first vacation movie. Total length 1.04.30.

      Now I want to burn the movie on a DVD to show family and friends.

      But were is the "Burn Button"??

      How and what to do after the completion.

      Can anyone explain to me in simple terms.

      Thanks, Hans

          Hans,

           

          Welcome to the forum.

           

          Unfortunately, you have posted to the Premiere Elements forum.

           

          PrE does have an authoring module in it, but with PrPro, you need to use Adobe Encore, the full-featured authoring program, that ships with PrPro. Unlike PrE, where much of the authoring is semi-automatic, Encore has far less automation, but far more power.

           

          For tips and questions on using Encore, please read and post to the very good, and active Encore Forum. See you there.

           

          Good luck,

          PS - the Premiere Pro CS5.5 Forum is HERE.

            Hi Bill,

            Thanks for the quick response.

            I was so glad to complete my first 'movie' but now I am cofused.

            As I wrote I am a newby in this world.

            Now I have my 1st project complete what to do?

            Can you explain step by step.

            Sincerely, Hans

              Hans,

               

              There are basically two ways to get from your PrPro CS5.5 Project to Encore, with some variations.

               

              One way is to Export the Sequence(s) from PrPro, and then Import them into an Encore Project. For an SD (Standard Definition) Project, going to DVD, one choice would be to Export (via Adobe Media Encoder, AME) to a DV-AVI file with 48KHz 16-bit PCM/WAV Audio. Then, create an Encore Project, and Import that DV-AVI file as a Timeline. Add your Menus, and link all Buttons, and then Preview, Check Project and Burn to Disc. Just leave Encore's Transcode setting on Automatic.

               

              I won't go into using ADL (Adobe Dynamic Link) to go between PrPro and Encore, nor will I go into details on doing the MPEG-2 Transcoding, outside of Encore. Those processes, especially the latter, are a bit more involved, and are best addressed in the Encore forum, as they do not apply in any way to PrElements. The method that I gave is the easiest, most straightforward, and is almost bullet-proof.

               

              Good luck, and for more details, optiions, etc., the Encore Forum would be far better, as there are major differences in how PrE does authoring, and how Encore does it.
