    As most of my programs are under an hour I have permanently created this clip (60 minutes) and apply it whenever I need it simply by adjusting the length to my Edius timeline. The clip resides permanently in my video library.
    I use this method on most of my agency stuff so it doesn't get stolen before completion.
    hey, that's pretty smart....

    Yes the 'Grid Encoding' that is used in "Print to DVD' is so super fast,
    it saves my bacon when deadlines are approaching fast....

    I don't have 8 cores like Anton but all 4 of my cores are flying!

    yes, but it won't use all 8 cores

    DVD creator uses 8 cores for those who have them) and it takes me only 8min to export a 60min timeline to DVD ready for burning

    this is handy for quick preview copies

    for the real stuff, I use T4 (also uses all 8 cores) and DVD Lab Pro

    I don't need a menu (can't stand the menus in 'print to dvd' anyway)
    Just a very quick burn to DVD with the timecode displayed.

    Thanks Anton, but unfortunately the company I work for doesn't have any raid setup
    and the files are HD going down to SD as well, probably would take longer too.


    thanks guys for the suggestions . . .

    Its just the option below, after print to file(dont have the correct name here, as i am not with my editing machine right now..), you can do it with TC...

    You are limited to a certain duration of course, lets say about 2 and a half hour if you choose a poor quality, but its happening straight from the timeline, no need to export to HQ or anything like that.

    I always do that when i wanna have a copy to review the material, or directors want to "pre-cut" a little..TC helps a lot there...

    But i might not get your point, as probably people like Anton know this..so if i didnt get the problem..my appologies..!
    he is using the built in DVD creator, it does not support TC display

    Yasou Aristotelis,

    Thanks but that's just not viable, for 2 reasons; Time + Quality.

    I need to pump out a quick DVD to clients with a timecode.
    "Print to DVD" is a very fast option as it uses all cores of my cpu.

    I don't need a menu (can't stand the menus in 'print to dvd' anyway)
    Just a very quick burn to DVD with the timecode displayed.

    I work for a company that doesn't have Procoder 3,
    so Procoder 2 is what I use, it doesn't have the very fast 'Grid Encoding' option as found in Procoder 3.

    Oh well......
    maybe this can be included in Edius 5 ???

    I will post that in the 'Feature Requests' area.

    ευχαριστώ φίλο!

    No, not directly,
    However, you can Print to file (display timecode), encode your project via Procoder or via the generic mpeg target and then import the mpeg file to DVD Creator
