All right folks. In this chapter, we're going to jump into Encore and get our hands dirty. We're going to actually make a project from scratch, complete with a menu a Navigation, a Timeline, and all sorts of great stuff, and we're going to learn a lot about Encore and the Encore workflow in the process. Now if at the end of this chapter you still feel a little uneasy, that's okay. We're going to be going through each step in this chapter over and over again in much more detail as we go through this training series. But that being said, let me show you what the final project is going to look like once we're done.
I'm going to go ahead and click this Preview button in Encore and here is the DVD, as if you were watching it on a set top player, and this is what you will be creating throughout this chapter. Let's check it out. (Music playing.) (Male speaker: Beautiful scenery, plenty of places to ride, beautiful weather - it just doesn't get any better than this.) So there you have it, and back to the menu it goes.
This complete project, again, we're going to be starting from scratch, creating it here in Encore. So let's jump in and get going.
