you can link all the spots timelines to each other by using the "end action" of each seperate timeline, or if you are using Encore 1.5 you can use the "playlist" function to make the job easier for you.

as for the audio, encore will automatically encode it to the best quality that it thinks will be best to fit on the DVD

you can find loads of Encore tuts on my site http://www.sitesled.com/members/doogs/

Thanks, Dave. The playlist feature was the perfect solution and just what I was looking for. However, I was unable to get a preview working. I think that's because I had around 30 spots chained together and the program has to get them in cue. But the DVD I burned worked fine.

I think Adobe could improve this feature by allowing the user to sort the timelines in the playlist alphabetically and otherwise. It would also be nice to have the ability to select all the timelines and do a global import to the playlist instead of this "one at a time" stuff.

I enjoyed your tutorials as well.

Bill, try this: Sort your timelines in the Project window, then select them all and create a new playlist.

The new playlist should be fully populated and sorted as in the Project window.

Enjoy,
Joe
