I am just embarking on creating my first dvd project., I am sure at some point I have read in the form that VT3 supports making chapter points that would be able to be used by an external dvd program , what are the shortcuts for creating these, I looked in "F1" and found no reference to chapter points

AS I understand it, you are supposed to make timeline marrks in VT=edit and NOT on the clip itself.

Then this VT-Edit project is saved as an .avi project

then, this file is supposed to load into your DVD authoring program and let you go thru that process

I do not know if this is current or a future thing

I think it is a great idea

the next step would be to carry the text data from the timeline marker that would be the NAME of the chapter

That would be pretty cool

I use encore and do not think it is currently implemented, but the engineers have made mention that this is a goal. Or who knows, maybe it already works. Funny thing about newtek, sometimes you think you have stumbled onto a big problem,just to learn it is most likely user error or when you contact them they reply "yeah, we caught that, too."

At the moment, Adobe doesn't support chapter markers imbedded within the AVI file, which is how VT-Edit does this.

Thats a shame
Is the process within VT3 edit to just add markers in the project.
What external DVD creation programs recognize VT3 chapter markers
