Overview
Status: Available | Released: Aug 25th, 2009
Encore DVD is the final piece of the puzzle for many projects created using the Adobe Creative Suite of Applications. For example, if you're using Premiere or After Effects to create video, you'll need to make a DVD-Video to showcase your completed projects. Even if you're using Photoshop or Flash, at some point you'll probably want to make a DVD portfolio, so knowing the basics of Encore DVD will pay-in-spades in the long run.

In this 4-hour title by lead Nonlinear Educating Inc. trainer Dan Moughamian, you'll learn everything you need to know to create engaging interactive DVD-Video. The title begins with a detailed exploration of the Encore DVD interface, including tips on using the workspace, setting preferences , and story-boarding your project.

Of particular note, in the first part of this tutorial you'll learn all of the technical details you always wanted to know about television standards, video frame rates, bit budgeting and compressing for DVD-Video, as well as the differences between normal and HD DVD-Video.

After exploring the science behind DVD-Video, you'll go on to make an actual project. You'll learn how to make custom menus, work with text, link buttons, and put together all the important interactive elements of your DVD. You'll also see the secrets behind making moving menus, including adding motion to buttons and menu backgrounds.

The tutorial ends with a section on advanced DVD-Video concepts such as making slideshows from still pictures and adding subtitles so you can localize your DVD in different languages to serve your global market.

Finally, you'll learn how to output a finished DVD-Video that will play on any standard set-top or computer-based DVD-Video player.

This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the entire show. Use the detailed menus and keyword search features to quickly find items of interest. For a full list of this tutorial's topics, see the Table of Contents.
