This course shows beginning filmmakers how to make a short documentary from footage they have already shot, and walks them from the editing process in Adobe Premiere Elements through uploading a finished movie to platforms like Vimeo or YouTube. Author and producer Jason Osder explains how the footage was shot along the way, illuminating why particular angles were chosen and how the subject matter influences the editing process. The course also covers trimming, editing to music, and adding a title and graphics, and the final chapters result in a polished, color-corrected movie with properly mixed dialog and music.
Creating a DVD to share your work is extremely easy right inside the Premiere Elements interface. Let's see how it works. Before we actually export the DVD, I do want to render the entire timeline. So I'm going to tab Return and wait while it goes, but I would never make an output before rendering everything on the timeline. (video playing) We start this process by opening up the Share menu.
You can see here a number of choices many of which we've already talked about. The one we want to do today is disc-based and a DVD. You can see here that we have format choices, and today we want to go with a regular DVD. We can give our disc a name. We indicate where the disc is going to be burned and how many copies we want to make. I can burn right now and make what's called a straight play DVD, which is useful in a lot of situations, but I also want to show you that Premiere Elements can make a DVD with menus.
You can see here a built-in DVD menu template, and you can find more templates online. For a lot of detail on making DVDs with Adobe Premiere Elements, see the Essential Training title on the lynda.com Online Training Library. You can see from this example that Premiere Elements makes it extremely easy to make high quality DVDs right inside the editing interface.
