Video: Creating your first DVD

So, you're done with your movie, and now you want to make a DVD to show the world. So, let's take a look at how we do that. So, here's my movie in the Timeline, and I want to make a DVD. So, I can go to Share here to make a DVD, but what I'm going to do first is create some chapter markers for my DVD. So, when I have it in the disc player, I can say okay, I want it to go to this point or that point and not just have to watch the whole thing every time from start to finish, because if you have a long movie, that might not be the best way to go. So, let's go back here, at 1.

Creating your first DVD

So, you're done with your movie, and now you want to make a DVD to show the world. So, let's take a look at how we do that. So, here's my movie in the Timeline, and I want to make a DVD. So, I can go to Share here to make a DVD, but what I'm going to do first is create some chapter markers for my DVD. So, when I have it in the disc player, I can say okay, I want it to go to this point or that point and not just have to watch the whole thing every time from start to finish, because if you have a long movie, that might not be the best way to go. So, let's go back here, at 1.

So, I might go here, and this little icon here it says Markers. I'm going to click the arrow and choose Set Menu Marker. It's going to open up the Menu Marker dialog box at 3 frames in. I'm going to type Intro and leave everything else to default as a scene marker. If we had a Motion Menu button, we'd check that, but we don't. So, we'll click OK, and there's that. And let's go ahead a little bit, and I'm going to make one here, because that's my niece.

So, we'll go menu marker, and we'll put braces, and we're going to click OK. Let's go ahead a little bit, and right here I'm going to do my interview. So, I'm going to type in "Alina Interview." Click OK and let's go through that. And right here I'm going to type in "Performance." So, we'll set another menu marker there, and this is the performance.

There we go, and that's it. We're going to leave everything else alone. So, now we've got all my menu markers and I can make my DVD. So, I can go to Share and now I can just click on Burn DVD to Disc. So, we'll click on that. And I can literally just go click on my DVD. I've got a disk in. It's telling me it's ready. I would change the name here to The Dance, and I can just click Burn and it'll make a DVD that I can just stick into a DVD player and it'll play automatically.

But I did add chapter markers and I do want to see those, s, let's add a menu. And so before we burn, let's go into Disc Menus. This is where you'd find all of your premade content, all your templates to make DVD menus and submenus. We only have one currently installed, but Elements 10 ships with a lot of menus. It's on an extra content disc; you can also download it from adobe.com and add more content here. So, we're going to use this one, and I'm going to click Apply, and now here are our menus.

I'm going to need to change the movie title. I'm going to leave Play and Scenes alone, and I'm going to add something right here. So, I'm going to go in this button here and choose Browse, and we'll pick a nice dancing picture here. We'll choose OK and there's my dancing photo. It looks great. And then right above it is my text item. Let's double-click on this. The Dance, we'll call it. Click OK and I'm going to leave the rest alone.

So, let's test this out. Let's choose Preview right here. Here's our photo. I can press play, but let's go to the Scene area first. We'll check out the scenes, and here they are: Intro, Braces, Alina Interview, Performances. So, I can click on her interview-- (Alina: What I think is great about EDN is that we're providing students with an opportunity.) --and I can exit. I can also just choose Auto-play to see the whole thing, and we're good to go. So, now we're able to apply this and use it on our DVD menu.

So, let's go back to Share and The Dance and click on Burn, and there we go. So creating the DVD in Elements 10 is quick to do. The process actually takes a little time when you're actually burning the DVD though. Be prepared to wait for a few moments. So, Elements 10 is a powerful program that allows you to export to DVD formats to view on any DVD player.
