Hi,
I've been working with Premiere 6.5 and am now at the stage where I'd
like to output my projects to a DVD. I have a few questions:

1. The DVD should be viewable in a standalone player connected to a TV,
as well as a computer. Do I need DVD authoring software for this? I've
seen the one from Adobe, but am not really familiar with other ones.
Suggestions?

2. Can anyone recommend an external DVD writer? I would be connecting
with Firewire from my notebook.

Thanks,
-Jeff

After trying 2-3 others (including some "name brand" and high-
end products, none of which I never got working), I bought
Adobe Encore (as part of the bundle, but still using my old
Premiere 6.5 rather than risking Premiere Pro). I am very
pleased with Encore. Reasonably straightforward and intuitive
and it actually works (finally!)

I use only internal drives. Don't trust external. YMMV

The only reason for using an authoring program is to create menus and
for putting chapters on your video so you can jump to a certain place
in your video.

Pioneer make reliable DVD writers, they may have an external drive.
