I'm trying to create a BluRay disk and am completely confused by Encore. I have a lot of experience with DVD Studio Pro but I cannot wrap my head around Encore. Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial for beginners with Encore? I've been to http://jmrser.com/ and the I can't get a picture with the videos and http://tale2tell.com/ stops the tutorials with creating menus.
A little about my project: It's a a Blu Ray with 2 films on it. There are 5 menus and each menu has an animated background. When the button is selected I want the text to be highlighted. I also want to create "Stories" (this is what they're called in DVD SP) where the user can choose to play only a section of one of the films. I have all of my assets created. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I think "stories" are made by creating "chapters" in Encore, but I don't think Chapters work for BluRay. I believe you would have to create a series of separate videos for your stories in Premiere, and then export them separately and import them into Encore as timelines.
You could hook up each timeline to a separate button, and if you wanted to play them sequenially, use a "playlist" (not chapter playlist) holding all your timelines.
