Chapter Playlist are very similar to the playlists we just looked at in the last movie, almost identical, in fact, except that the Chapter Playlist gives you control over what viewers are watching within a given Timeline. So previously, when we looked at the playlist, you can choose different Timelines and what order they are played in, and for Chapter Playlists it allows you to look at the different chapters of a Timeline and pick and choose in what order those chapters are watched. Now here we have a clip. It's not a full-length movie, but for our purposes here it's fairly long, over 6 minutes long.
It's a travel podcast, and we start with this intro here. This is the first chapter. And the second chapter is basically an introduction, Welcome to the Explore California podcast, and then the third chapter are viewer pictures. The fourth chapter, as you could see here, this is using chapter four and chapter five. Chapter four is a very long tour through an olive factory here, Ohio Olive Oil, and it basically takes up the entire podcast. It's the what the podcast is about. And then we wrap up with this final little Snowboard California thing where there is all these cool like snowboarding clips for the last little piece of it.
So let's see, for example, that we want to make it so if viewers are not interested in the Olive Oil, they can skip it and watch the entire podcast except for the Olive Oil segment. So you can come down here to the New button in the Project panel and create a new Chapter Playlist. And again, remember that Chapter Playlists allow you to play different chapters within a Timeline. So we need to select the Timeline we're going to be using and click OK. We're then brought to yet another viewer, this time the Chapter Playlist viewer.
And so here are the different chapters in our Timeline, and we need to move them over here to our Chapter Playlist. So we'll bring over Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, and we're going to skip Chapter 4 because that's the Olive Oil presentation one, and then Chapter 5. So if we were to link to this Chapter Playlist from a menu button, for example, people were to watch this, it would play chapters 1, 2, 3 and 5 in that order. Now we can shuffle and rearrange. We can drag and drop to our heart's content.
We don't necessarily have to go in order, and that's the benefit of a Chapter Playlist. And again, just like regular playlists, this is incredibly handy. Let's say you had a really long video with tons of stuff in it, let's say for a sporting event, for example. Let's say you have this long 2 hour game, and you don't want people have to sit and watch do the whole thing, maybe you just want to jump in and get the highlights, or maybe they just want to see when the goals were scored or whatever. So the Chapter Playlist will allow you to let viewer see just the key elements, maybe you can make a Chapter Playlist of when one team scored the goals and then maybe another Chapter Playlist when the other team scored goals.
So again, Chapter Playlists are another way that you will allow viewers to get to the content that they want.
