DVD Recon

In the midst of our biggest product release to date and the upcoming video blog, I managed to find some time to develop a free training for the design and authoring of a playable video DVD. I think many people are familiar with the process but it is so important, I wanted to make this available to the community.

I’ll be covering loopable motion menus, rendering and compression, plus authoring the DVD in Encore. We’ll talk about export formats and what format I like to actually work in. Should be a lot of fun and Sam is sure to get his recon on.

I've been working with computers since 1981 (yes, I'm old). Never in my life have I experienced such a dedicated movement to the advancement of knowledge as I find here at VideoCopilot. Thank you Andrew for sharing your insight, knowledge and humor with us. You are indeed a gift to all of us.
One last comment: Don't any of you sleep? Look at your comment times. WOW.
kevin
May 28th, 2009 @ 6:13 am
Hoho, nice! so you will basicly learn us how to perfectly make a DVDmenu? Sounds like fun! I always had to learn this stuff.

Oh and btw, get some sleep please. ;) You posted on 1:13 am, which you usually do.

I have actually learned it in "Serious Effects and Compositing" Very nice anyways.
May 28th, 2009 @ 6:51 am
Man, Sam really cranked that guy!
May 28th, 2009 @ 6:52 am
Hey Andrew,

What font did you use for RECON? looks NICE!!
can't wait!
May 28th, 2009 @ 6:56 am
What will set this tutorial apart from the one on the "Serious Effects and Compositing"?
May 28th, 2009 @ 7:11 am
Thanks Andrew. You are definitely da man! I use Sony's DVD Architect for my DVD authoring, but I am sure your tutorial will apply to almost all DVD authoring software somehow.

I look forward to seeing how you do the tutorial. It is definitely a very important topic for the VCP community to learn. (love the teaser artwork...and the fact you put Sam in imminent danger once again with some huge creature...Woo Hoo!...Fun!)
Jens Christian
May 28th, 2009 @ 7:11 am
Hey, that sounds cool :)

And a little idea:
It would be great if you made a little bonus thing, that show how to make these amazing DVD covers and 3D DVD cover posters, you have made for the VC products.

Andrew. Let me know if you're and your family come to Brasil any of these days, cos you dont need to worry about a hotel cause you just won a place in my house with this one! TANK YOU!!!!!! I've been working on DVD LAB PRO for a long time and always wanted to move to encore cause its capacity to work with After Effects, and now I WILL!!!!
Christopher
May 28th, 2009 @ 7:49 am
Great News. I hope u'll release it soon. I'm working on a DVD right now and do need some ideas an tips to make it look fine.

BTW: Was Sam in Germany two weeks ago? I can swear I saw him at the beach in Wilhelmshaven :D

greeting from the other side of the world! Keep working! U guys do a great job!
May 28th, 2009 @ 7:50 am
Awesome, Andrew! I think this is something that is totally overlooked, and I get so frustrated with Encore. I can't wait for this tutorial.
May 28th, 2009 @ 8:00 am
Awesome!!! VideoCoPilot is the Best!
Ricardo Godoy
May 28th, 2009 @ 8:07 am
Hey greetings from El Salvador!!! I think Sam should do a short action movie directed by our Andrew Kramer... hey Andrew why don´t you do the acting in a new tutorial along with Sam I thimk it would be interesting
Eric S
May 28th, 2009 @ 8:08 am
Andrew, will you be covering audio/subtitle options? EVERY film dvd I own has a menu where you can change audio/subtitle, then resume the movie. Encore doesn't seem to let you do that. It forces you to return to the beginning of a chapter after setting options. So to change sound and subtitle you have to go to the menu, set audio option, takes you back to timeline, go back to menu, set subtitle, takes you back to timeline, then you have to find where you were in the movie.

I hope you'll show us that I'm wrong about that.

Thanks!
chad

Kai
May 28th, 2009 @ 8:50 am
hey, that's great!
I agree with Patrick, you should actually make a Angry Monsters 2 Movie.

Also, when is the video with the Action Essentials effects coming out?
You know, then one you wrote about in the blog a while ago?

I'm sure your tutorial will be helpful to many motion graphic artists. I recently updated our Adobe Encore video tutorial which addresses many of the bugs with the program. Hopefully Andrew will address these bugs as I did. Before you release the tutorial, you might want to take a look at mine as it provides workarounds for all of the problems.

Awsome idea Andrew, I have now finally lernt Adobe encore as I needed it for a school project and the thing about encore is, it is self explanatory. You can mess around with it and learn it in within 2 days, its just like a bridge between Adobe After effects and Photoshop, i think.

However the most annoying and the hardest part is to cope with some stupid very bizzare errors, which just seen to pop up without a reason. The software has so many bugs and its like a nightmare when you are about to publish and you get some transcoding error like "file exist"I mean more than 50,000 files exist on my pc , what should I do!!!!!

So I hope you cover the errors and the bugs in detail, as they are a nigtmare.

At last, your website is the best, it has provided me with a lot of inspiration and help on my projects. Thank you so much.

This will be GREAT resource, can't wait to pick it up.

Will you be doing the dvd for Star Trek?

Saw it last night and thought it was great, JJ did an excellent job. The closing credits were unmistakably VCP.
Good job.

cool.. i know making menu's in encore is not too hard.. can make some cool animatied backgrounds, cool scenes, or whatever.. fairly do-able... Actually made some myself in the past already.. for videoclips and some other projects.

But i'm highly interested in your opinion about compressing to dvd's.. !
Videocompression in general is most of the time such a pain in the .. welluknowwhat!

Looking forward to new tutorials.. and surely looking forward to ActionEssentials2..!

And.. please ; dont encourage Andrew to make a angry monsters 2.. let him make #1 first if he does it at all ;)

This will improve the quality web-wide!
Can't wait!

Looking forward to this one :o)

Will this be translatable into other programs as my work won't shell out for Encore or Premiere CS3/4 so I have to make my menus etc in After Effects then load them into Pinnacle Studio 9 to make the DVDs :o(
