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.
Our next step is to create a subpicture highlight. Now, if we open up the Set Up button that we just made, we have the elements for this. I have the text here, and I have the cloud shape, but really, what's going to be the subpicture highlight is this Sun copy. So what I'm going to do is double- click the name Sun copy. Make sure it's not this object and make sure it's not this fx icon. It has to be on that text. And then again, before the text, everything that we do is going to be in parentheses, and it has to be before the name of the layer or group.
That's how Encore recognizes it. So again, before the word Sun, we're going to, in parenthesis, type =1, and then close parenthesis. That's it. That tells Encore that this is a subpicture highlight. And again, as mentioned, there are three different groups, so this could be =1, =2, or =3. The other buttons in our scene use =1. So we're going to go ahead and leave that as =1, so that the subpicture highlight colors all match up. And folks, as far as buttons go, that is it.
We did everything that we need to. We have this little Plus in parentheses, and this =1 in parentheses, so we have a subpicture highlight, and we have a button group. We have a button, so good job. Now, it's actually going to get juicier as we look at several more interesting codes coming up.
