Burning dvds from files made using Adobe Premiere Pro or Adobe Encore DVD 1.5 Files made with these two programs will not work with GEAR Video 8


When you try to author a DVD with GEAR Video, it requires the video files to be encoded as MPEG-2, and it expects the files to have a .mpg file extension. You can not author DVDs directly from DV video files (.avi). Adobe Premiere can encode MPEG video files, but it saves these files with a different file extension (either .m2v or .mp2).

If you want to use GEAR Video to author the DVD, you should refer to the following guides.

Overview: Create DVDs

Encoding to MPEG-2: Encode Video to MPEG-2 for DVD

Authoring: DVD Authoring

You should have no trouble using GEAR to encode your DV video movies (.avi files) to MPEG-2. Then you can use GEAR Video to author the DVD-Video title, and burn it to a DVD-9.

If you want to use Encore to author the title, you would have to write the title to a disc image (a VIDEO_TS folder with the IFO, BUP and VOB files).

If you have a completed DVD title (VIDEO_TS) on your hard drive, you can create a new DVD-Video volume in GEAR.

Now you can burn the volume to disc.
