Hey guys this is lesson two with DVD Studio Pro, and we’re going to pick up right we’re we left off. In the first movie, we made a quick easy to burn DVD with the movie assigned to play movies in a slide show assigned to the slide show.
With this video, I want to configurations, and go to advance and you’ll see what I see. Okay, so now here we are at the very end. I just set up a new project. It’s not the same project from the last video, but as you go to that first video you’ll end up here. Okay, you open your advance view you’ll see we have a movie assigned to the play movies button just like we did in the first one. And because of that, we’ll see down here the LP tracking is the movie that I assigned to the played movies and it automatically and shows up down here on the timeline okay.
So, if you go to the viewer, you can see your movie and —. Let’s set a few chapter markers. If you notice there’s an introduction, so I want to go to the end of the introduction and set my fist chapter marker and to do this, you hit the M key, or just click up here in this little area. So I’ll hit the M key, and now you can see it’s set at chapter two—random chapter here, right here. We hit the M key or click up here, and set it to chapter three marker.—Before right here it goes to the end and this time I’ll hit the M key and you’ll see we have set some chapter markers okay. Now, I’ll show what this does for here in a minute, but what we want to do is now, we’re going to add a transition. When I click this play movie button, instead of it just jump and straight to the movie, I want it to have a transition okay.
So, I’m going to select the movie. I want you to select the movie, and down here in the buttons menu. You’ll see a style advance to colors and transition. Go to transitions tab, now it will be this little dropdown menu, and you can pick what transition you want and of all these transitions, I’m just going to pick melt, that’s it our melt transition.
Now, I’m going to simulate this disc and show you what we’ve done. Simulate, now we have our menu here. Now, if I click play movie, you’ll see that the transition between this and the movie kind of melts away. See there? The set is to the HD. So now, we’re playing our movie. Our transition is in there nice.
So now, we added those chapter markers. What did that do? Well, you’ll notice as I’m playing the movie, if I skip and hit the chapter skip forward, it goes to the next chapter marker. So, you can have different chapters in your DVD. You can have different scenes. You know you can skip —on regular DVDs where you can skip chapters as you can see. Now we had four chapters set up, and we have a transition set up into our movie here as you can see, we set at the melt and it’s melting away, and we also have chapters. And that is a quick dirty how to add chapter markers and transitions to your clip burned DVD lesson that we went over just in the last video.
Remember, go to video, configurations advance, you have all your mini imported and you be really to burn your DVD, but before you do that, set your chapter markers where you want back like I went through here. And then, you set a transition to your buttons by clicking the button, going over your buttons menu, clicking your transition and from the drop down menu, click any button that you want. As you can see, there’s all kinds here let’s get the cube. If I set it to cube and I simulate the disc and select my movie. You can see transitions into a cube and no matter how many movies and stuff you have, you can always use transition the same way.
So, this was just another added little trick. You can do this to booze up your DVD. We’re going to get into more advance things, more advance menus, bigger menus, more complex menus and this is just the way to add transitions to your buttons and to set chapter markers, so you can skip to your DVDs. Thanks for watching, and I hope you’ll watch the next one coming. Thanks guys.
