How to Create DVD ISO Image Using Adobe Premiere Elements

The DVD disc is still alive though most devices do not support it anymore.

The good thing about the DVD is the interactive video selection menu page.

If your computer does not have a DVD drive, you can create a soft version first.

The soft version is simply a file that works like a DVD without the physical disc.

You can email this soft version to another person to burn the actual disc.

This soft version is called the “ISO Image”.

Case Study: My client wants to mass replicate on DVD the video I produced for them.  The DVD replicator guy, also my friend, requested that I email him the ISO image file.  That get work done faster  for everyone. I don’t have to send him the DVD and he need not extract the content from the DVD.

There is various software that can make a DVD ISO image, but the easiest and fastest (most intuitive) one that I already own, is the Adobe Premiere Elements.

Here’s How to Create DVD ISO Image Using Adobe Premiere Elements.

  1. Click on Publish and Share.
  2. If asked to create menu, do it, and come back again.
  3. Select DVD.
  4. Select ISO Image (4.7 GB)
  5. Click Burn.
