Putting together a Demo Reel in DVD Studio Pro

In DVD Studio Pro we often create chapter index's to give the viewer the ability to jump to a specific spot in the video. With a chapter index (also known as scene selection) DVD Studio Pro will jump the the selected point and play the remaining portion of the track from that point. In a demo reel we typically want to give the viewer an opportunity to view all of the various examples of our work, or view one at a time. Since a chapter marker will play from the chapter point to the end of the track, we can't use chapter markers to play the individual examples. Instead we will use stories. Stories act like play lists, and only play the desired chapters.

After placing all of the videos that will be part of your demo into a track, you will place a chapter marker at the beginning of each video within the track. Next right click on the track in the Graphical view, and choose Add, then Story. Once the Story is created, highlight it and duplicate it as many times as you need to, so that there is one story for each video. Each story will have a list of the track markers in the Story Editor, and whatever marker you drag over to the Story Marker side of the Story Editor will play when that Story is activated. By assigning one marker to each story, and targeting each story with a button from the menu, you will be able to play individual video's without having to play the entire track.
