automated dvd menu creation
on Aug 26, 2008 at 12:48:05 pm

hey guys,

i hope you guys can help me with an non-standard problem.

we do motion graphics and visual effects for corporate events and advertisement.
now everytime we create sth. the client wants to watch everything we´ve done on a dvd.

so far no problem, we go to dvdspro, create a menu, load up the animations we´ve done (already encoded in carbon coder) and assemble the dvd.

but i am really the workflow guy and there must be a way to automate this!
our file-sequences (16bit tiff or openexr) are automaticly encoded by our renderfarm so what i am looking for is a way to scan the folder with the encoded footage and create a menu out of the mpeg2 files.

preferably i would give me a choice of templates and then creates everything with a single mouse button.

am i crazy or is there a software/tool that gives me what i want?does dvdspro support this kind of functionality?

any hints/tips greatly appreciated.

timor

This is probably not what you are looking for exactly, but Sonic has a program called Scenarist Publisher.

http://www.sonic.com/products/professional/ScenaristPublisher/quicklook.asp...

I have used a demo and have to say it is very possible to cut down on authoring times. Basically you create a template form. Then whenever you do your video and audio encoding you just switch out the assets and multiplex and you are done. There are many many other possibilities that could improve your work flow enormously using this program. Go ahead and check it out.

hi luke,

thank you for the link.
i am afraid that everthing with the name "scenarist" in it´s title is out of reach budget wise...;-)
but i´ll try to get a demo nonetheless.
will let you know how it goes.

thanks,
timor
