Video: Creating Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, and web DVDs

So we just created a DVD that we can show all of our friends, but Adobe Premiere Elements also gives you another option, and that is to export a web DVD. And let me show you how that works. So here's our Timeline. One thing we're not going to do is add any markers; we're going to see what happens if we don't do that, and we're not going to add a menu. So let's take a look. We'll click on Share. The first item here says Build web DVD for viewing online or on a PC, so let's take a look. So we get this menu that comes up that says we're missing the Disc menu and we are required to have one.

Creating Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, and web DVDs

So we just created a DVD that we can show all of our friends, but Adobe Premiere Elements also gives you another option, and that is to export a web DVD. And let me show you how that works. So here's our Timeline. One thing we're not going to do is add any markers; we're going to see what happens if we don't do that, and we're not going to add a menu. So let's take a look. We'll click on Share. The first item here says Build web DVD for viewing online or on a PC, so let's take a look. So we get this menu that comes up that says we're missing the Disc menu and we are required to have one.

So we're going to have to click OK. And that's going to take us back into our Disc Menu selection area. We would have more templates here. We could easily just pick and choose, but we've got one, so we're going to use this one. And we'll just drag it in. Now we've got another menu that says we're missing our menu markers. And what are we going to do? Do we want them to create it automatically? So let's say Yes on this one. And here's another menu that tells us do we want to set them at each scene, every so many minutes, and how many total markers do we want? It could literally do hundreds of markers if you leave it at every scene, so I'm going to say Total Markers I want maybe 4, and then we'll press OK.

So we're back to this screen again, which you should be familiar with, and we're going to Browse and choose our photo again, and then we're going to preview it. But before, take a look here. We have all these menu buttons. If I double-click on one, it has no name here, so we may not want to use this one. But what's cool is we can actually drag this. So I can bring them back to the way I wanted them before. So I can go here, double-click, and choose Intro. I can go back here, move my playhead.

We'll go out of this for one second and come back after. And we'll go to our playhead here, and we'll go move that marker over and double-click, and we'll type in "Braces." We'll move this one over, type in "Interview." And the last marker actually went on the Performance, so that was good. 3 out of 4 were not, and 1 was good. We'll take that. We'll just type in Performance and we'll click OK, and then we'll go back into that Disc Menus and let's just test it first. Preview.

We need to change the movie title. Here are our scenes once again: Intro, Braces, Interview, and Performance. And I need to go change the menu title, so we'll exit out of here and we'll go and choose Title, double-click on it, and this is called The Dance. Click OK. Let's preview it one more time, and there it is. If I press play, it automatically plays.

So this looks great, so I'm done with this. I'm going to go back to Share, and we're going to build our web DVD. So do I want to save this into a folder on a computer or upload it to photoshop.com? So I don't have a membership to photoshop.com. I'm going to save it onto my folder, and I'll show you what happens after that. Do I want it to be high definition or standard def? I'm just going to choose Standard Def High Quality on this one, and I'm going to call this DanceWeb so I can differentiate, and we're going to put it on the folder on the desktop.

So I'm going to type in web, Choose, and we're ready to go. Let's press Build. Okay, so our build is completed. Let's take a look at what it looks like. We can actually click on the link here. (clip playing) I'm going to mute that out for a second, but this is an HTML file that includes this disc menu, and I go to Scenes and there it is as well.

So now one thing to know is that once you have your web DVD ready, we need to upload certain files to the Internet, to your own domain name or your own server, to make them really work, so let's see where they are. So I'm going to minimize Premiere, and we're going to go into this folder we made called web, and let's just see what's inside. So we've got DanceWeb, and there are all these files. Here are all of our movie chapters, here's the HTML file that plays the web DVD, and here's our scene menus.

And if I double-click on this, that's going to open up our browser. We're going to need this file to play this. We can change this file name, because everything is going to connect; don't worry about that. But you want this to be on maybe, it's davidbasulto.com/playthedanceweb or whatever I decide to call it. So all those files need to be up there. It needs to be in a direct path. If you're uploading the folder we have called DanceWeb--and let's just take a look at that--this DanceWeb folder, that's absolutely fine as well.

So we can do DanceWeb folder, forward slash, whatever we name this, and we can absolutely just leave it alone if you'd like to, just to play it safe. And it'll play online and everyone will be able to get to it. So Premiere Elements allows you to share this as a web DVD, but remember, you do need to have a server or some kind of web hosting to play it online. You can also just copy this whole folder, drag it into another computer or your laptop if you want to take it with you, and it'll play off of that as well.
