Like on a DVD-R? No that is applied during replication.

Yeah Noah...it is a DVD-R I am talking about. But you did answer my question. You know, Creator has an option to set the copy protection in the project prefs...so I thought that I might have a chance. But thanks for setting me straight on it.

The first opportunity to check copy protection is on the check disc from the replicator. Always thoroughly check this disc in every possible way before you approve the replication run.

Thanks Bill. We always do here. Do all of the copy protection options of Creator have some sort of Licence agreement much like Macrovision? Also, under the APS option under Video Attributes, The APS option has Type1, Type2, Type3. What do they mean? What one would I use?

Thanks much!

Brian

For CSS, it's up to the individual replicator's policy to charge or not. The CSS keys are quite expensive and you need one for each PCG being encrypted. For competitive reasons, some replicators throw in the CSS encryption for free.

Macrovision requires the disc producer to execute a license ($$$) for each disc title. Also the authoring facility is supposed to have a Macrovision license (no cost but onerous reporting requirements) to even turn on the Macrovision option.

Macrovision 1 is the least secure/most user-friendly, Macrovision 3 is the most secure and problematic/least user-friendly. Many disc use Macrovision 2.
