The 1st update to VT3 mentioned DVD chapter markers that could be read by most DVD authoring packages and that is the last I heard of it. Where are they and how are they used? I searched through the manual and the forum's archives, but to no avail. :confused:

Did it really say "most" or "some"?

Unfortunately, there is a lack of standardization in how authoring programs accept chapter point data.

I believe there are one or two authoring applications that will accept the way VT[3] does it, though the names escape me, since they weren't authoring applications that I use.

More importantly, for me personally, I don't think it would work for me since it's something embedded in the AVI stream and I always use TMPGEnc to encode my video to MPEG-2 before bringing it to any authoring application.

Thanks Eugene,

I guess they wouldn't work for me either, as I also use TMPGEnc for my encoding.
