Forgive me if this question has been asked before: What is the best procedure to create a DVD using Adobe Encore CS3?
The thing is I edited my footage on Premiere CS3 then I chose Export to Encore from there it started to import my footage, which was a m2v & wav file, and it was taking quite a long time to transcode when Encore opened up. When I noticed it was taking forever to import to encore I cancelled it. Then using the files that were already created, the m2v & wav file, I created a new Encore DVD Project and then imported the m2v as an asset. I left it to import and checked back about 6 hours after and I noticed it was only at 10% and the remaining time was increasing rather than decreasing. It had something like 38 hours remaining and the time was still going up.
So I gave up and cancelled it.
I know it takes long to encode files to DVD and forgive me if I sound like an amateur but I am willing to get any help possible. My project is 1 hour 9mins of edited footage. I would estimate it would take about 12hours to transcode as assets in encore till I can finally burn it to a DVD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this question has been asked before, can I be pointed towards the link that has the post. I would be of big help. Once again forgive me if this question has been asked before.
