As we saw in our flowchart, that first arrow coming out of this dick icon in the flowchart represents the first play object, the first thing that will happen when our disk is played in a DVD player. And you could tell that this Explore CA menu is the first played object here in the Project panel, because it's denoted by this little icon here. It's a circle with an arrow. So in another words, this is the first thing that will happen. Well, a lot of times when you are watching a DVD, you actually might want to play a timeline first. And a lot of times when you are watching Hollywood DVDs, it doesn't actually start with a menu.
It starts with a little movie, maybe an FBI warning, or whatever it is. And so, you might want to put that timeline first and have the timeline's End Action go automatically to the menu. So the way that we create a first play object is quite simple. We simply right-click an object and choose Set as First Play. And then, now this object has the circle with the arrow in it, and it becomes the first thing coming out of the disk. I should also point out that just like with End Actions, if you do not have a first play object setup, then Encore will give you a warning when you go to check for errors, and you burn a disc or make a Web site or whatever.
It will let you know that this is a problem. You absolutely need to have a first play object.
