So let's say you've delivered your presentation that you made in Encore. People are just eating it up, and they want more information. They want the PDFs that you've made. They want the research you've done, maybe extra files and videos and assets and resources that you have, but they won't work on a DVD. For example, you can't have a PDF displayed on a DVD. So what you can do is burn this content, whatever extra content you have, you could burn it on the DVD as data. This is done by going to the Build panel, the same panel that we'll be using later on to actually burn our disc.
If you scroll down a little bit, in the Disc Info area, this is where you're allowed to put on DVD-ROM content, in other words data content. So what we would do then is click the Browse button. We would navigate to our folder on our hard drive. Now, it would have be a folder. We can't just pick and choose individual files. Encore will not let you do that. You just select a single folder, and then Encore will use that and burn to the disc again as data content. And the way that works is that people can still play your presentation as video, like in a regular old DVD player, but then when they put it into your computer, they will be able to play it as video, and they'll will also be not be able to access the data content, so whatever's in that folder that you've added, if it's a PDF file or extra videos or whatever it is.
You might not use DVD-ROM content in all of your projects and maybe very rarely. Qhen you do need it and you have that ability to pass off data content, as well as video content, it's very powerful and often very helpful.
