Creating Animations With Graphic Files In DVD Studio Pro

Importing graphic files into subtitles streams enables you to create simple animations in DVD Studio Pro. You can't import motion graphic assets into a subtitle stream, but what you can do is create animations by adding one or two frame subtitles with a different graphic that depicts the animation at different stages. For example, the video stream may show a mountain while your subtitle animation can depict the route taken to climb the mountain by displaying a line that moves from the start of the trail to the top of the mountain.

Keep in mind that when you use subtitles to create animations, the impact on the playback bit rate will become substantial and could lower the bit rate of the video stream.

To create a subtitle animation you need to create and import an STL subtitle file. You will be able to specify exact duration and position of each graphic as well as configure the color mapping settings.

Check out this tutorial on adding subtitles in DVD Studio Pro.

Refer to page 423 in your DVD Studio Pro 3 User's Manual to learn more about creating STL files. There is not much on the web about this subject.
