In Encore CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins gives an extensive overview of Encore CS5, Adobe's powerful application for authoring DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, and Flash-based video for the web. This course covers adding audio and subtitle tracks, creating image slideshows, and using Encore as a presentation tool. Also explained are the Blu-ray enhancements in CS5, and advanced techniques such as creating games and hidden content for disc menus. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you own Encore, then you also own Premiere, and there's a great relationship between those two applications. Here I have this Export to Encore project opened up in Premiere where I have this little snowboarding guy going crazy there. What I'm going to do is go over to Encore, and I don't even have to compress or take the time to render or anything. I could import this Premiere project and still work on it in Premiere, and there doesn't have to be any compression or rendering, total timesaver and also a quality saver as well.
I'm going to go to File > Adobe Dynamic Links. We can't import this in the regular way we import other files, and I'm going to choose Import Premiere Pro Sequence. Now in the left side of this dialog box, I'm going to navigate to the Exercise Files that come with this training, and I'm going to go to the Media folder, and in Miscellaneous Files folder, choose the Export to Encore.prproj file. When you select it, on the right-hand side, you will see all of the sequences that are within that Premiere project.
So we can't import the entire project. We import the Sequences from a project. So I'm going to click on the Sequence here, click OK, and now we have the sequence here in Encore that we can just go ahead, and hit Command+T or Ctrl+T on the PC to put that into a Timeline. Now you see that it's magenta here. That indicates that this is dynamically linked to Premiere. If we're going to go back to Premiere and change the color, or trim it, or whatever type of edit we would want to do to it in Premiere, it would show up here in Encore without having to render, or again, compress it, and take all that time, really a great relationship between these two applications.
