      Hi

      I’m using Adobe Premeire Elements 3.0.2 (vista) and I’m burning multiple copies to a DVD at each sitting. What is the advantage of burning to a folder vs. to a DVD? I’d like not to wait for that lengthy first copy to complete. If I burn to a folder the first time, can I bypass the waiting at future sittings? If not, how can I accomplish this? Thanks!

      i’m not sure of the workflow of Elements, but, typically, in my workflow, I render my project to a dvd-compliant file, my dvd program then compiles the file to a folder that is then burned to the dvd. when i want to make additional copies, i just burn the dvd over with the previously made dvd folder.

      When you burn to a folder you can burn the DVD with 3rd party software like Nero or RecordNow. It just burns the disc, so you get a DVD in about 5 minutes. You can burn multiple copies with Premiere Elements very quickly as well but you need to burn them all in one session. Once the first one is burned the next ones only take a few minutes, once you close the project you have to start over again.

      Ok, so I guess it’s not possible to save all that time at future sessions.

      Thanks a bunch.

      You can save the time in future sessions by burning to a folder and using Nero or RecordNow to burn the folder to a disc.

      There are detailed instructions at the Adobe U2U forum in the FAQs.
