There are many different types of markers that can be utilized in Adobe Premiere Pro. One of these is a chapter marker. If you use a chapter marker, you can easily access it from Adobe Encore CS6 to create chapters in your movie. In this video, author Luisa Winters explains how to use chapter markers in Premiere Pro and Encore CS6.
- [Instructor] You can export some of the markers in here to be part of Encore, and how we do that is simply by adding Encore chapter markers. These can be used later on for navigation or even for creating a DVD menu. Let's go ahead and try that. Open Sequence 3.2. Let's go ahead and add some media to this, different media so we can clearly see the difference between the one and the other. And, say I'm going to add, maybe, the drums here a little bit.
I'll keep the existing sequence settings, and I'm going to trim this to about yay. And now from the video clips, I'm going to add, maybe, one of the beach clips right here and I'm also going to trim that quite a bit, and maybe one from the different beach right here, so I'm also going to trim that. It doesn't really matter. We're not doing a real edit here. And finally, the ocean city one here, and I'll just trim it to this.
So I'm purposely keeping this rather short, so that the rendering time is short, and it's all good. So, I'm going to put some markers. Let me trim that as well. I'm going to put some markers that we will be able to use for navigation, so say one here. I'm going to go to the next set in point, one here, one here, one here. So I have a total of four markers, right? I'm going to turn these now into DVD chapter markers.
So, I'm going to double click the first one, and I'm just going to name it, first. And, I'm going to make it a chapter marker. I'm going to go to the next one, that's going to be second, and I'm going to also make it a chapter marker. The next one is just third, chapter marker, and then the last one, which is the fourth and the chapter marker. I'll just go through them to make sure I did correctly.
And yes, they're all chapter markers and we're good. Now you can click OK. Now, let's go ahead and export this for DVD. Control + M or Command + M goes to the media export, and I'm going to make this MPEG2-DVD, so MPEG2-DVD. It's going to be wide progressive. It doesn't really matter. I'm going to export the audio and the video. I'm going to leave everything as it is, 'cause it doesn't really matter if we see the black edges, and now I'm going to export this as DVD, just going to name it that, DVD.
Click on Save. Click on Export. Now, we open Encore. In Encore, let's go ahead and create a new project. I'm going to save it in the same place where I've been saving the other stuff, and I'm just going to name it DVD, and click OK. You can now import the asset that we exported from Premiere Pro in here.
And I named it DVD. Notice I have two files. I have the wave form and I have the m2v file. Click on Open, and there you go. You can now select both of these and go to Timeline, New Timeline, and you can already see that the markers are where they need to be. So, we can go to the first, second, third, and fourth and look what happens if we actually click on it.
See how this is named second, this one is named third, this one is named fourth, and even the first one is named first. So, if I were to create a menu, say Menu, New Menu, this is now the menu for the DVD. All I have to do is drag these chapter markers there, and it's already creating the navigation buttons for me.
I can select all of these guys, right click, I can Align, left or right. It doesn't really matter, and I can now Distribute, say Vertically, and now I can tell them to set the name from the links. So, you can see that right here, and now they're named appropriately, so first, second, third, etc, etc. All I have to do now is make sure that the first play of the DVD is the menu.
So I go here, Menu, and I'm going to choose the Default button, which is usually the first, and this should work perfectly well. If we were to preview this, we just click on this button here for preview, we can see that we can select any of them. So first, there it is. We can go back, third, and finally, fourth. We can navigate easily between all of these.
