(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Chad Perkins and welcome to Getting Started with Encore CS4. In this training series, we're just going to get our feet wet with Encore. Encore is an amazing application that started only as a DVD authoring program and is now morphed into this great multimedia program that authors to Blu-ray disks, DVD, and now Flash movies as well. In this training series, we're going to get started with Encore. We're going to get our feet wet, we're going to make sample projects, we're going to look at the workflow in Encore, and get familiar with the basic features.

This is the ideal training series if you just need to get in and get out, and you don't need to know what all the features do. It's also a great training series if you need more prep before getting into Encore CS4 Essential Training. It's gonna be a great experience, so let's jump in to Getting Started with Encore CS4.
