Thank you Admiral and Harm
I didn't realize that premiere is not supporting DVD's menus editing and burning.
I understand that encore can be bought only as part of a bundle.
What are the best options for some one who purchased just premiere pro cs5.5, to solve the issue of menus editing and DVD burning?
Premiere Pro 2 used to have a direct burn to dvd fearture, but overall it was not much of a succes.
The way it goes is you send your timeline to Encore. (File/dynamic Link/Send to Encore)
Encore opens, choose the dvd settings.
Timeline appears in Project Window.
Go to build and press Check Project.
Set End Action and Title Remote (by clicking on the name of the 'problem' the appropriate tab wil open. Title remote = button remote)

As Ann points out, that old "direct authoring to DVD" in PrPro 2.0 was horribly limiting, and of little use. Back then, Encore was either available as a stand-alone purchase, or included in the CS2 Production Studio. Encore, even back then, is a much, much better program, and going from PrPro to Encore has gotten easier, and better, as versions progressed. You will love Encore!
I cannot recall if it has a separate install routine, or if it just installs with PrPro now, but either way, it is included on the DVD set.
If you then have any questions with Encore, there is a very good and active Encore Forum. Some of the same faces will be there, but some good new folk, as well.
Good luck, and happy authoring,
It has been too long, since I last had Liquid, so I forget how things worked in that program. Seems that some DVD authoring was a bit "semi-automatic," not too different from Pinnacle Studio, or PrPro 2.0's built-in authoring.
Encore will offer you MUCH more power and control, though not much is even semi-automatic. Do not let that be daunting, because when you get used to that power, and the manual operations, you will soon love it. The power is intoxicating.
Good luck, and see ya' in the Encore Forum,
For Premiere, if you have not see this FAQ List, it might really help to get you up to speed, and rather quickly. Lot of good material there, and lot of good tutorials, by some of the best in the business.
