Outputting to disc

From: Encore CS5 Essential Training

Video: Outputting to disc

So now we've built our DVD project, and we've checked for problems. Everything is smooth and ready to go, so let's go ahead and build this disc. Go to the Build tab here, the Build panel, and we need to choose our format. We could choose DVD, Blu-ray or Flash. Since the process of burning DVD discs and Blu-ray discs are pretty much the same, we are going to talk about those in this movie. We'll talk about Flash Web sites specifically, on in their own, in the next movie. So, I am going to leave this set DVD for now. For our Output, this is kind of interesting. We can choose to output to a Disc, Folder, Image, Master or a DDP Image.

Outputting to disc

So now we've built our DVD project, and we've checked for problems. Everything is smooth and ready to go, so let's go ahead and build this disc. Go to the Build tab here, the Build panel, and we need to choose our format. We could choose DVD, Blu-ray or Flash. Since the process of burning DVD discs and Blu-ray discs are pretty much the same, we are going to talk about those in this movie. We'll talk about Flash Web sites specifically, on in their own, in the next movie. So, I am going to leave this set DVD for now. For our Output, this is kind of interesting. We can choose to output to a Disc, Folder, Image, Master or a DDP Image.

Now if you choose a Disc, Encore is actually going to burn the disc directly. If you choose one of these other options, then Encore is going to store stuff on your computer so that it can be burned later. Let's say I know I want to burn certain discs like a few every week or something like that. I can actually create a folder, or an image, or a master and leave those on my hard drive and then call them back later. And actually I misspoke, Master and DDP image are used for replication.

We will talk about what that is a little bit later on in this training series. So I am going to come down here, and we also have this Auto-Erase Rewritable Discs and the Write Speed and the Number of Copies. I should probably point that out. We also have the Disc Info we've been talking about. We could name our project here, so as somebody puts the disc in their computer, this name will pop up. We can also choose the Size of our DVD. I am just going to leave set to the consumer standard, 4.7 GB, choose the Sides here.

And we'll talk about Region Codes and some of this other 'bidness' a little bit later in this training series. But for now, that's really all we need to know. I did mention before that if you have a DVD Folder or a DVD Image that will basically create files on your hard drive to be burned later. If you need to, you can go to the Source area and by default, it says Create Using Current Project, so it's going to make a DVD by using this project we have opened right now. But we could also choose a DVD Volume or Disc Image that we can load from our hard drives some where else, maybe one that we have previously created from Encore, and then burn DVDs using that.

And after getting all the settings the way you want them, all you have to do is click the Build button. Whether you're burning to a DVD or whether you're burning to Blu-ray, really not too much difference in terms of the settings here. The same basic thing. So, we click on DVD and if we were to click on Build right now, we would burn a DVD straightaway.
