In Encore CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins gives an extensive overview of Encore CS5, Adobe's powerful application for authoring DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, and Flash-based video for the web. This course covers adding audio and subtitle tracks, creating image slideshows, and using Encore as a presentation tool. Also explained are the Blu-ray enhancements in CS5, and advanced techniques such as creating games and hidden content for disc menus. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you're having your disc professionally replicated, another feature that will be available to you is Region Encoding. So if we go over to the Build panel here and you scroll down a bit, we have this Region Codes area. Now by default, All Regions are Enabled. But what happens with professional DVDs is that they like to make it so that only that certain area could play those DVDs. So, for example, here in United States, we have Region 1 DVDs. If we were going to take a DVD from some other country, maybe somewhere in Europe like Great Britain or something, we would probably not be able to play it in our DVD players because it was set up that way, and you could only play DVDs from your given region.
So if you wanted to go the professional route, you could choose Custom and then uncheck the places that you do not want to play your DVD. Now this is a pretty professional feature. So you might want to leave it stuck on All Regions unless you know exactly what you're going. And remember, again, that for predictable results with Region Encoding, you'll want to go to a replication facility.
