Subtitles & Chapter Points
on Jul 25, 2010 at 10:58:37 am

Hello people,

I just need a few pointers. I'm using Cs5 on a Mac OS X.

I'll be creating multiple subtitle tracks for a project. Is there a way to allow a viewer to 'turn on' individual tracks from a menu, rather than activating them from their remote? It's vitally important this DVD has that feature.

Secondly, I've got one whole timeline, and multiple chapter points. Ideally I'd like the viewer to be able to select a chapter and then once it's run its course, return them to the chapter menu. Is there any way to do this without having multiple timelines?

Many thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Unfortunately many Encore features that work for DVD do not work for Blu-ray, including supporting an audio and subtitle setup menu. This is true for all releases of Encore, CS3 through CS5. We have been trying to get them to fix some of these issues for over two years now, but Encore seems to be very low on Adobe's priority list.

We showed them how to fix the setup menu problem in the weeks leading up to the CS5 release, and they produced a working patch, but it did not make it into the release. You can download the patch from our web site, here:

Your chapter point question with a single timeline can be solved by using Encore playlists, and has been explained in earlier posts in this forum. Be sure to test it in a player, of course.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for your response. One question though - I am creating a regular DVD rather than a Blue-Ray, so your post leads me to assume that particular feature should work for me?

Yes, Ryan, afaik it works fine for DVD. I apologize for jumping the gun.

Use "Specify Link" from the Link popup for the button, choose the stream number, and which menu item to select after activating the button.

Larry, is there a PC version of Quickfix download for CS5 BluRay available?

John,

No there is not, I believe that Adobe did the patch for Macintosh only, as a test. There was talk of a point-release for both platforms at the time, but I did not see any mention of Encore in the Premiere point-release.
