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 double-click a menu in a Project panel, it will open up in a panel called the Menu Viewer. And this is where we can make some adjustments and see different things down here that we'll talk about later at the bottom of the Menu Viewer. But it can be a little confusing because you might think of this as the Menu panel, but over here there is the Menus panel also. So what's the deal? Well, they serve different purposes. The one that we looked at to see our menu is called the Menu Viewer, and this is to referred to as the Menus panel. So the Menus panel is to allow us to look at our menu at a glance.
It's extremely helpful, so I could click on a menu here and when we click that menu to select it down below here, it will show us all kinds of information about our menu, specifically each button. So if I look at Big fish prize, if I go back to my menu you could see that the menu button names are Big Fish Prize, Take Home Pay, Excursion - Day 1 and preparations. These are the same buttons here. And again, a lot of the stuff is going to make sense later on. A very important feature called End Action Override, so we could see the end action override at a glance, and tons of other information, including the Link.
So if we could see that's Not Set then we know that that button is not connected to anything. So this can be a very helpful way to look at information about the menu itself and also each button at a glance.
