Auto Chapter Marks?
on Aug 30, 2005 at 6:12:10 pm

Does anyone know of a way to automate the "add chapter marks" at specific intervals in Encore DVD 1.5.1, such as every 3min, 5min, 7min, etc?

There's no way to do it automatically in Encore.

However, you can reduce the labor involved using the hot text timecode field in the Timeline tab. Click in it and enter +30000 to jump the CTI forward 3 minutes, then add a chapter point using the asterisk * keyboard shortcut.

That has basically been my workflow as of right now, but I'm going to be "authoring" a lot of discs in the 1hr 45min range over the next few months. I know there are external tools like Cuttermaran 1.65 that can write auto chapter code for IfoEdit (celltimes.txt), Maestro (.chp), Scenarist (.txt), CCE (.txt), and DVDAuthor (.txt).

Are there any programs that can write the Adobe metafile similar to the one you get when you export an MPEG-2 out of Premiere Pro with chapter marks set on the edit timeline?

Brian,
I'm glad to hear that someone else has the same problem
as me. I've been doing a couple of projects recently where
I needed the automated chapter marker insertion. In fact,
I downloaded the SDK for PPro to see if I could write a
plugin to do this. Unfortunately, this kind of automation
is not supported in the SDK. There is a request feature
for it now.

Good luck, and I feel your pain.

Mark

I too tried the SDK and no luck. I also tried modifying the metafile I get out of Premiere when I encode through the Adobe media encoder and no luck with that either. Hopefully someone can come up with something for a workaround.

There is no workaround. Please file a feature request with Adobe and perhaps you'll see it in a future version of the app.

Thanks,
Joe

At the top of your timeline "workspace" there should be two stips.
Right-Click on the 2ND strip from the top,
then on the menu select; `Add Chapter Points at intervals...`

It should come up with a pop-up box asking how much time do you want in between the chapters.

Hope this help!!!
