burn DVD from folder created by premier

How can you burn a DVD from a folder created by premier elements 2.0? The folder contains a video_ts folder, but also a "sources" folder. I don't want to have to render from scratch every time I create a DVD, but instead want to create an image, and then burn multiple discs.

thanks,
Ed

The only folder you really need on a DVD is the video_ts folder. Have you tried burning that one folder to a DVD with your burning application?

not yet, but I will try that. What is the extra stuff that Prem. puts in that other folder?

And thanks, by the way, for all your help and answers earlier in the week!!

by the way, I was using DVD Architect before for burning. Is there a preferred application to burn DVDs with Premier?

You may prefer burning your finalized project to an .avi type (DV) in Premiere, and then using that as you source file in DVD Architect, where DVD Architect will convert it to the necessary DVD files structures. For some reason, DVD Architect seems to produce a nicer DVD render for me. Obviously, my settings in Premiere are probably adjustable, and I just haven't looked for the way to do it.

Honestly, I don't know. What I do know is that the video_ts folder is all you need.

If it is just the video_ts folder you need to burn, any CD/DVD burning application like Nero or Roxio can do it. In fact, I know that Nero includes a special mode just for that purpose. For that matter, there's even a handy free utility called ImgBurn that uses the Nero burning engine burn video_ts folders to DVD. It installs itself in the Windows context menu, which makes it extremely easy to burn DVD folders.

As Chris pointed out, the other option is to export an avi and then let DVD Architect transcode it for you. Or, you can use the route I've traditionally gone, which is to export an MPEG-2 video file (along with a PCM audio file), and then import that into my DVD authoring program. My DVD authoring program simply leaves the imported MPEG-2 file alone, and transcodes my PCM audio file to Dolby Digital (AC3). This option avoids the extra time involved with exporting an avi file and then having your DVD authoring program encode that to MPEG-2. You can export an MPEG-2 file using the Adobe Media Encoder inside Premiere Pro.
