How to export Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 video to DVD?

Question by 1by1: How to export Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 video to DVD?
I have edited a movie in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and want to burn it to DVD. Exporting the media to DVD format using Encoder will take 130 hours as it shows (it’s a 2-hour video). I tried importing to Encore and it’s really slow as well. How can I burn the edited video more quickly to DVD?

Answer:

Answer by Bonce Bonce
On a 2GHz dual-core processor (enough to operate Premiere CS4), it could take maybe 10 to 16 hours to render 2 hours to DVD using Adobe Media Encoder or Encore at their default quality settings. It might take a little longer if you have lots of effects. It should not take 130 hours, but you still have to be patient if you want to render 2 hours of video to DVD at reasonable quality. You could try reducing the quality settings in Encoder to get a feel for how patient you will need to be, but I wouldn’t trust the displayed ETA.

It’s important to plan such renders for overnight (not a few hours before the render is needed, which I keep learning the hard way). If you’re going to regularly re-render a large project after small changes (e.g. for review purposes), try to manage the project as a series of smaller sequences for which you need only update the chapters which have changed in Encore (reimport the timeline for just that chapter, if it isn’t dynamically linked).

I don’t think it’s worth bothering to render out an intermediate file (using a quicker codec) to then use a separate encoder and DVD authoring package, unless you are already familiar and keen to use that other package (sounds like not).

Question by HannaH Montana: Where can I download photoshop brushes for eyebrows? ?
I googled for it and only found two results; one you had to pay for, and the other only had about 9 and wasn’t what I was looking for. But I know there has to be more than that somewhere.

Question by Aaron C: How do you get new brushes for Photoshop Elements 6.0?
In Photoshop Elements 6.0 there are basic brushes. I want more. How do I get these brushes???

Answer:

Answer by Moon
Click on the paint brush tool.

Up near the top left hand side of the screen you will see a white rectangular box with a brush stroke in it. (Looks like an eyebrow and is next to the size menu).

Click on the arrow down.

Then a box will pull down that says “Default Brushes”.

Click on the pull down menu next to default brushes.

Pick your style.

ENJOY!

I would like to import my resume as a word doc (or docx, or pdf) into my website for viewers to download.

I use Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 and host with godaddy.

THANK YOU!
after messing around with it a bit more, I decided that on my front page I want to image map the link to download the pdf.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Answer by Blista Compact
Assuming that your webpage and the word document at the same folder

if the file name is resume.doc

Download Resume

—————————————-

if the filename is resume.pdf

Download Resume

Then the users will see hyperlink with text “Download Resume” and when he/she clicks on it he ll be able to get it.

If your document in an another folder, then you have to specify its relative path to the document, withing the href attribute.

Question by sushiis4me: I bought adobe cs4 for a pc but want to buy a mac so will it work?
I heard that a mac uses adobe cs4 more efficiently so I do not want to use boot camp (might as well stick with a pc) and I heard that crossover does not work with adobe cs4.

Answer by Arie
No, it will not. You have purchased a Windows version. Windows software is not compatible with Mac OS X and the other way around. You will need to purchase a Mac OS X version.

Q&A: Photoshop CS4 Brush locked on eyedropper?

Question by renee: Photoshop CS4 Brush locked on eyedropper?
Okay, I use photoshop CS4 all the time until recently, the brush has been acting very strange. It is stuck on the eyedropper tool as if I’m holding down the alt button. After tapping a few times it switches back to the brush, but sooner or later the eyedropper gets used again, and it really takes a toll on how I paint. I’ve tried reseting all the settings and even uninstalling and reinstalling photoshop, but it still does this and I don’t know what to do. Does anyone have any idea as to how this can be fixed? πŸ™

Q&A: When I resize a picture to make it bigger in Photoshop CS4, the photo goes all blurry. How can I correct this?

Question by Bean: When I resize a picture to make it bigger in Photoshop CS4, the photo goes all blurry. How can I correct this?
I have no idea how to use photoshop.
I should add, its an old photo taken on a film camera that I scanned onto my computer.

Answer:

Answer by fhotoace
You don’t really need Photoshop to do that. You need to 1) shoot at your cameras highest resolution, 2) fill the frame in the camera so you don’t later have to throw away any of the image file and 3) make sure all your images are shot so not subject or camera movement causes blur

Spending $ 700 or so on CS4 to “fix” mistakes made in the camera is not a good economical strategy. Better so spend your money on a second lens and learn to use your camera to get the shots in the camera … an not need to use any photo program to fix mistakes
