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.
Now I should also point out, for those of you that work in After Effects, you could create buttons and subpictures and actually even video buttons here in After Effects. So, for example, I have this Play Text here. Turn that on and off so you could see that, blinking at you. Then right above that in the layers stack, I have the star here. What I want is the Play Text to be a button, and I want this star to be a subpicture highlight. No problem whatsoever. So I'm going to just go ahead and select one of them, Shift+Click the other one, and with both of these objects selected, I'm going to go to the Layer menu at the top.
I'm going to choose Adobe Encore > Create Button. Now, we can create the button name here. I'll just go ahead and call this Play, and then for Subpicture 1, we can choose which object of our selected objects here do we want to be the Subpicture? Well, I don't want the Play Text to be the Subpicture. I want that to be on constantly. So I'm just going to chose Star, so that star becomes Subpicture 1. Now watch this. When I click OK, it adds the code for me, the Plus sign in the parentheses, and if I double-click this to open up and see its layers, you can see that I have the text and the star with the =1 Subpicture code already added, thanks to After Effects.
So again, there really is this amazing integration between Premiere, Encore, and After Effects.
