Premiere Pro straight to DVD

I know in older versions there was an option to burn a simple 'no menu' DVD straight from within Premiere Pro.

What was the last version of Premiere Pro that had this feature?

Thank you,

CS6 certainly has a "Send to Encore" item listing within Dynamic Link. Never used it, though.

I think CS3. CS4 definitely goes thru Encore (mandatory).

Sometimes, I miss that old 'Burn to DVD' feature. Not sure why it didn't remain as an alternative option:/

CS2 had a build in DVD feature, was not very good. So Adobe took it out.

Re: Premiere Pro straight to DVD

Hi Ervin,

I know it doesn't answer your question, but in CS6, sending your Sequence to Encore and burning a DVD straight from Encore with no inputs made will produce a DVD which starts when loaded. No menu required, none used. At least it did last week for me. The CS6 sequence was a mix of .mp4 1920x1080i (1.9) and .m2t 1440x1080i (1.33) on a 1440x1080i (1.33) timeline. The resulting DVD was 720x480i.

Cheers, Ian

Re: Premiere Pro straight to DVD

CS2 is what I referenced when I said Premiere had the feature - and I would extend the comment "was not very good" to Adobe CS2 in general - it was a click-crash-click-crash software... either CS2 or CS3 was the last I used any Adobe stuff ~10 years ago. Please don't delete this - I intend to come back!

I moved on to another software, which I will not name here. But this other software is taking a course that does not fill all of my needs, so I would like to give CS/CC another chance.

The problem is, I still deliver a lot of my work on DVD - please don't blast me, tell the attorneys I work for! It's mostly inertia, but also limitations by available hardware in outdated court rooms. This "other software" has a very easy way of creating DVD with just a few clicks straight from the timeline... and I am trying to find a way of doing the same with whatever NLE I go next, without the need to install a boatload of programs.

I hope this puts my question into context.

Re: Premiere Pro straight to DVD

Why not just hook your camera up to your DVD Recorder/Player unit? Just play the camera & record the DVD? Then just buy a cheap duplicator, like Produplicator.com

Re: Premiere Pro straight to DVD

But your thinking of finding a copy of CS2 & running it? Seems like your only doing it so you can be "non-linear", as outdated as it is (10+ years?). Can't imagine burning a DVD thru CS2 saves any real time, as opposed to the 2 hours it takes to duplicate it direct. Plus the duplicators dupe within about 5 miinutes. I'm a little confused about this tho, don't deposition videographers burn live to DVD at the dep? Why not just take that DVD & run it straight thru the DVD duplicator? BAM! 5 minutes, done.

Suit yourself.

Re: Premiere Pro straight to DVD

I didn't say I'm trying to find a copy of CS2! I was hoping that the feature still exists maybe in CS5 - I know it doesn't exist in CS6 and CC.

I have no DVD to duplicate; I shoot to cards, edit on PC, and sometimes I have to burn to DVD (although mostly upload the digital files to my client's server).

Burning DVDs on location is so... 10 years ago!

CS6 with dynamic link. Or maybe try Adobe Elements.
