Hour 21. Designing Your DVD Project and Creating Menus

With Premiere, its bundled DVDit! LE, and a DVD recorder you now can make DVDs. DVDs can store massive amounts of video, images, music, and data. They offer amazing versatility and interactivity and have near universal compatibility.

Creating projects that exploit these characteristics takes planning. I'll suggest ways to organize your ideas and turn them into coherent and cohesive DVDs.
