Hi everyone, first time posting here, and I have a quick question about using Encore. I am preparing my demo reels for dvd playback, at school we've been using Premiere Pro 1.5 and I have just been using the new export to DVD option, and making my DVD's loopable. is there a way in Encore that i can just create a self playing DVD? we have encore at school too but honestly, none of the Animation department has a clue how to use it, out Digital Media Production guys know how to, but that's a different story. My school has chosen to "get rid" of Premiere Pro 1.5 for some darn odd reason. Any help, or little tutorial would be great, also any suggestions for other programs that our Media guys might have that can do a self playing and looping dvd would be great!!!
Thanks in advance
Tim S.

Creating a self playing loop-able DVD in Encore DVD:

Open Encore click on File-> Import Asset and find the video clip you want to use

NEXT: Right click on the video in the Project Palette and select New Timeline, after the timeline opens make sure the video and audio are on the timeline in there prospective tracks, if not drag the audio/video to the timeline

Click on the play button on your monitor to make sure the video plays like you want it too.

if your monitor is not open select Windows at the top and click on monitor, all your palettes are under the windows link at the top of the program.

Click on your Project palette and the timline to set the properties for the timeline

Now we need to set the End Action

The Timeline Properties palette should be on the right side, use the Pick Whip (the little circle after the words End Action on the timeline properties palette. Left click on the pickwhip and drag it to your timeline on the project palette that should set the end action.

Setting the menu remote

drag the pick whip to the video timeline on the Project Palette

Now click on the Disc tab, and on the disc properties palette drag the pick whip for the Title Button to the timeline on the project palette.

Save project

Now with the Disc tab selected select Build project

hope that helps, I have several tutorial as well as many resources on my website for using Encore

I was reading your post in regards to creating a looping video. I was following all the instructions and got stuck in the step for applying a pick whip. I couldn't find this little circle after the word "End Action". Below the end action column it says not set. Please help.

I have a question regarding this subject matter. I'm trying to do the same thing and I have followed the directions in this thread and the loop works except for one thing, I get a black frame every time the loop starts over at the beginning. Is there a way to get rid of this?

Thanks a million,

Hi, I can't find the "disc" tab in CS6. Is it called the same thing?
