You can not burn a BluRay to a folder with Premiere Elements.
There are a number of third-party programs that will let you create BluRays with menus and burn the files to your hard drive. My personal favorite is DVD Architect Studio, a $39 download from Sony Creative Software.
You can see some demos of how it works at http://Muvipix.com/ Just type DVD Architect in the product search box.
Thanks Steve. What type of file should i save it as so that DVD Architect can burn it? i am using a Sony camcorder and usually record at 1920x1080 and set Pre10 to edit in that format and want to save it in the best resolution as possible to make it into a blu-ray. The one that i tried to use i saved as a .m2t file but like i said Roxio didn't recognize that, will DVD architect be able to use that?
If you use Share/Computer/MPEG and select the 1920x1080 BluRay MPEG output, that file will work perfect in DVD Architect. (This is a video file only. It will not include any menus you added in Premiere Elements. You need to do that work in DVD Architect.)
The second half of my free tutorial Prepping for Disc will show you how to do it.
Thanks Steve. I will watch those and let you know how it goes.
how would Encore work with Pre10? can Encore be pruchased separtly from the CS suite?
just wondering before i purchase the DVD architect
just realized that i have vegas movie studio hd platinum that has dvd architect in it!! doah !!! i bought it and tried it but didn't like it much and once Pre10 came out i went back to that but i will now try the DVD architect. and watch your tutorials...
>can Encore be pruchased separtly from the CS suite?
Encore is bundled with Premiere Pro
I think it needs to be version 5 to handle Blu-Ray.

IT worked!!! Thanks Steve. i did everything like you said and i ended up with a BD of my 2 hour music vid in HD. I used the DVD Architect and wouldn't have been able to do it without seeing the tutorials on the Muvipix site. it took 10 hours to render but i ended up with an .iso file that Roxio Creator 2010 was able to burn as a BD and it played fine on my at home BD player. the first burn failed for some reason so i tried again with a slower burn speed and that one worked fine so i can now burn more if needed without having to render every time.
it's too bad that i can't burn an .iso in Prel10 as it is easier for me to put in the chapter marks and all of that but if this is what i have to do i will get better at DVD Architect in time.
Thanks again for all the help.
