    Hi Arachosia – To make a DVD for your relative take the following steps : 1 Open your timeline in Premiere. 2 Go to File / Export Media. 3 In the export settings box that pops up the first thing you have to do is on the upper left of the export setting box select scale to fill. 4 On the top right side of the export settings box select the format as MPEG 2-DVD. 5 Just under that set the preset to NTSC DV Wide Progressive. 6 Midway down the right hand side you will see more setting for effects, video, audio and multiplexer, etc. 7 Select video – move the quality slider to 100% then scroll down to bitrate settings and set bit rate encoding to VBR 2 pass ( better encoding quality ). 8 Click on the audio tab and set the audio format to be MPEG ( Saves about 25% space compared to PCM ). 9 Click the multiplexing tab and under multiplexer settings select DVD. 10 In the middle of the export setting box on the right side you will see a line that says Output Name – your file name will be there – click that to setup a place to export your file ( not your operating system drive – it may cause problems if you do not have a second drive on your system you can use a external hard drive. Then click export -this will create a single MPEG File with a standard def widescreen video file with the audio embedded in it. From there I use Adobe Encore CS 6 ( which is free to download if you have Adobe Cloud or earlier versions of Premiere ) to create the DVD. There are many other DVD creation software packages but I prefer Encore. Any questions – feel free to get back to me here or at david@focusvideo.com. Glad to help

    Howdy Pacific –
    Laptops can work well – but make sure you get one that has the internal space for 2 hard drives because all kinds of problems can happen if you try to edit on one drive. Also – nowadays it seems that most laptop manufacturers are only using 5400 rpm drives – editing video works best with 7200 rpm or better hard drives. Solid state drives do make a significant difference but depending on budget you can get by on 7200 rpm regular drive. What will make render times go down significantly is having a 4 gig Nvidia card in the system. I would also spec i7 processors, a minimum of 8 ( and preferably 16 ) gigs of memory, USB 3 connectors, and an SD card slot, Questions – holler back.

    The AC 130a is a fabulous camera – it blows the AC 90a out of the water

    A great and inexpensive way to get royalty music is from Smartsound – http://www.smartsound.com – They have a large variety of music and you can even use their software to make the music fit the length of your video. Smartsound has more features that are great – I've been using it for over 10 years.

    Benjamin – First thing I think is causing problem would be using such a small drive ( 60 gig ) for your OS and Vegas and I am guessing you also have a few other programs like DVD Architect, email, and browser software on that same boot drive ( at the least ). You did not mention which Windows OS you are running or whether it is 32 or 64 bit ( which would determine how much of your ram can be used – remember a 32 bit Widows OS can only use at best 4 gigs of ram – but I have to think you don't have enough space for a properly sized swap file. The rule of thumb that I have followed for the last 15 years is to have at least 25% of your OS drive empty. I also think that if your mobo can handle an I7 processor – I would make that move now – even if your mobo only supports Gen 1 I7 processors. I have a 1st gen I7 ( 920 processor ) system running Win 7 home 64 bit, 18 gigs of slower ram, 3 7200 rpm hard drives, a GTX 260 (1.75 gig ddr3 ) videocard, and a 27 and 23 inch monitor running off of the GTX 260. I can run Vegas 11 in preview at 29.97 fps with absolutely no problem. To reiterate – 8 core processors have more throughput than quad core – available space for a proper swap file is critical – and 64 bit OS's can address more ram than 32 bit OS's. Also one thing no one has mentioned – even if you are running a 64 bit OS – are you running the 32 or 64 bit version of Vegas 11 – that also could make a big difference. Any questions – shoot me an email to david@focusvideo.com
