Workshop

Review the questions and answers in this section to try to sharpen your Premiere DVD-creation skills. Also, take a few moments to tackle my short quiz and the exercises.

Q&A

Q1:My set-top DVD player's manual states that it recognizes CD-RW discs, but it won't play the CD-RW I made with DVDit! LE. Why not?
A1: Set-top boxes that recognize CD-RW will play it only if it has CD music or is a video CD. DVDit! can make neither type of product. If you try to play a CD with Sonic's cDVD player in your set-top DVD player, it will either eject the disc or do nothing. On the other hand, it should play from most PC CD and DVD drives.
Q2:I want to send DVDs to my clients and include some PDF and other data files on them. I don't see any way to do that.
A2: With this bundled version of DVDit!, you can't. If you upgrade to DVDit! SE or PE, you can use the DVD-ROM file feature to add data files to your DVD project. Alternatively, you can use standard CD/DVD recording software, such as Prassi PrimoDVD or whatever was bundled with your DVD recorder, to create a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM disc with an MPEG-2/WMV/MOV/AVI version of your video on it, along with the data files. Your clients will be able to watch the video using readily available players, such as Windows Media Player and QuickTime, and access the data files, but that won't give them the interactivity that DVDs authored in a product such as DVDit! SE or PE offer.
