Apple DVD Studio Pro: Director's Commentary – Setting secondary audio and/or captions

Chapter: DVD Authoring

Topic: Subtitles and captioning

Your viewers are able to set up their audio stream or subtitles from their remote, but there are potentially several advantages to letting them do so from within your menu system. For starters, your work looks that much more slick and professional. Also, you can more fully describe what’s on said alternate streams – there’s no ISO code for “Director’s Commentary.” For that matter, if you want to use advanced features like Subtitle Buttons, you can create really cool interactive experiences that people wouldn’t even think to turn on from the subtitles menu (I think Rocky Horror Picture Show did this …). Well, DVD Studio makes controlling audio and subtitle streams farcically easy.
