Thanks for the reply Alan
Ideally I'd like the user to get sent back to the main menu after viewing any section so creating separate clips in Premiere, as suggested in the tutorial video I mentioned and by you, looks like the way to go.
I'm just playing about a the moment with some footage my neighbour shot at Christmas and we've made a copy of the original so that nothing we do will have catastrophic result! Our plan is to make a small DVD from that just to check that we understand the principle of the whole thing.
It's a slow learning process, especially at my age but I'll get there in the end.
Could I tack an extra question on please?
I know that the tutorial video suggests saving in .AVI format so that Encore doesn't have to recode but there may be times when it would be useful to have footage saved in a different format, especially as AVI files are huge.
I know that using the Adobe Media Encoder in Premiere allows the project to be exported in different formats, such as MPEG (also large files) and WMV (much smaller).
My neighbour said that he did play about with exporting in different formats just to see what happened but he noticed that when he played back a WMV file the image was much smaller than the original AVI.
I've played lots of WMV files and the image has usually been OK so is there a way around this?
I see that you are in the UK so would you care to offer any advice as to what settings to use when exporting for PAL?
