Creating Chapter Menus in DVD Studio Pro

DVD Studio Pro makes creating chapter menus easy. Instead of having to create a button for every chapter, name it, and make the connection, DVD Studio Pro does it all in one move. Once you have your chapters set and named you only need to drag the track icon from the outline tab to the button that is to represent chapters. Once you hold the track icon over the button, a pop up menu will appear, you will want to choose the Create Chapter Index, Make Connections option.

As soon as you do this a menu will pop up asking you to choose a template or layout style. You can use one of the DVD Studio Pro templates and layout, or create your own. If you are going to use one of your own, you will want to create it before starting this process. After you select your template or layout, DVD Studio Pro will do it's magic. DVD Studio Pro will assign a button from the template or layout you selected to each chapter, extend the name you gave each chapter marker to the button, and make all the appropriate connections

DVD Studio Pro will also show the first frame from each chapter in the button, and unless you turn off the motion will play the video from that point inside the button. If there are more chapters than buttons for chapters in the particular template or layout, then DVD Studio Pro will create additional chapter menus that will be linked to the first one.
