Chapter 2. DVD: What Can it Do?: Features and functions

DVD is more than just video on a disc. It's also a robust format that allows video, audio, still images, and data files to happily co-exist within a common digital environment. The format permits you, the DVD author, to precisely control the way these different media types are presented to the end user. On discs that implement the full range of DVD features, viewers can customize the presentation to their individual needs or personal tastes. Because of these options, it's not likely that any two people will watch the same DVD in the same way.

Versatility makes the DVD format extremely appealing to consumers, but also makes it a little difficult to wrap your mind around all the possibilities if you're trying to create one yourself. This chapter walks you through the high points, providing an overview of the media types and features at your disposal when creating DVD projects.
