Select the sequence in the bin or activate the Timeline panel/tab that contains the sequence, and use the command. You cannot send a clip to Encore; you can only send a sequence.
Thank you for the quick reply. What is the easiest way to simply send the entire 1 hour clip to a DVD that others can watch? Also, since this new to me, is there another resource (other than Classroom in a book) that is a better step-by-step guide for learning the basics of taking 1-2 hour video clips (with minor editing) and getting them on a DVD for others to watch on a computer or TV?

Drag the clip to the New Item button at the bottom or the Project Panel; it looks like a dogearred sheet of paper. This will create a sequence with your clip in it. Now send to Encore as described above. Once in Encore, go to the Build tab, select DVD Disc, and let 'er rip. You'll have the most basic DVD ever, but everything will be automatically fit to the DVD and it will play immediately when placed in a DVD player.
If you need more functionality than that, it's time to break out the manuals.
Thank you again for your expertise. First suggestions worked and DVD plays using Windows Media Player with no issues (older DVD player would not work, but not concerned about that for now).
I really need a crash course on basic video capture and editing using Premiere Pro CS5. What resource(s) do you recommend?
