    Hi All

    Firstly, I've looked at various adobe.premier groups, but they seem to be
    pretty much dead!

    Just gone and bought Premier Elements 2.0 to make a short (30-40min) DVD. So
    far it seems really quite easy to use, but I've only played around with
    various scene transitions, audio fades, and created a 40 second clip.

    The end project will be composed of probably 8-10 5 min scenes. Each scene
    will have audio comentary, music, and various video transitions.

    My question is, would you work on the WHOLE DVD at once, or would it be more
    sensible to render individual scenes to MPEG and add these to a final
    project?

    My PC system is a 3Gig P4-HT, 1Gig RAM, and lots of spare space on an unused
    SATA HD. Although the system is no slouch, I can feel, even now, that it
    could be faster (maybe borrow a 2.8Gig dual-core with more RAM).

    Just read the Elements FAQ on Adobe's web-site. The suggestion is to
    file->export->movie small parts (i.e. scenes) and then build the final DVD
    as a new project.
    Makes sense.
