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.
A lot of times when you're designing in Encore things can get messy, typically not this messy. This is an exaggerated example. But I have four buttons here that I have dragged and dropped into this menu, and they are all over the place. And I could eyeball it and move these closer together and align them, but that's just a big mess. It's not something I want to do. So what I'm going to do is select all of these. I'm going to click on one of them with the Selection tool, and I'm going to hold the Shift key down and click on the others so that they are all selected. Then I could go to the Object menu, and the first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to align these.
So I'm going to go to Align, and then I'm going to choose Right, so that the right edges are aligned. And instantly this looks so much better, and at least horizontally, they are all lined up. But now I want to not line them up, but I want to distribute them evenly. So what I could do is go to Object, and this time I'm going to go down to Distribute. And I'm going to distribute them vertically. So then now, they are equally spaced. So what was once chaos is now very orderly, the right edges are aligned and vertically they are equally distributed.
