Create DVD Layout
DVD discs must be in specific format to be recognized by standard DVD
players. Source video must be organized as Titleset(s), Title(s),
Chapter(s). You do not have to worry too much about this.
Varsha can organize it if you really do not care about Titlesets,
Titles etc., and just want a playable DVD.
If you want to create your own Titlesets/Titles etc., Then
move your mouse to item named 'Disc' on the left of main screen and use
right mouse button to access context menus.
If you want Varsha to help you create a DVD layout, just drop
your MPEG files on Disc or TitleSet or Title and Varsha will try to
read your mind and create the required structures for you.
I myself use this feature most of the time.
For now, if you want to create DVD with menu, please use ONLY ONE
Titleset and organize your video files inside it using Titles.
This is a self-imposed restriction in Varsha to keep things simple
during initial stages of development. Most people should be
able to organize their video using one Titleset and many Titles inside
Each source mpeg file becomes a chapter in your DVD. So, make
sure you split your mpeg-2 files if you want to be able to jump
chapters using |<<
>>| buttons on your DVD player's remote.
If you forgot to split your mpeg files at chapter points, then you will
still be be able to fast forward and rewind.
You can even drag and drop bunch of still pictures (JPG) downloaded
from your digial camera and make slideshows. Just drop them on
Disc or TitleSet or Title or into an existing Slideshow on your DVD
project (you can see your disc layout on the left side of main
You can move your source files up and down inside a Title. Use up
and down arrow keys in combination with "Ctrl+Shift" to do this.
For each item selected on your DVD layout (left side of your main
screen), you can see associated settings/properties by selecting
"Properties" tab on right hand side of the screen. If you have a
menu item selected, then "Properties" tab will show you a preview of
the menu and let you adjust selected menu item's text/size/font/style
