Static Edit

Static Code Monkey

A static chapter submenu

Watch this menu on YouTube.

The -submenus option tells todisc to make static chapter menus for each video on the DVD.


Generating command Edit

The generating command in its entirety is:

$ tovid disc -files amateur.mpg caliendo.mpg monkey.mpg poppin.mpg \
  -titles "Amateur" "Frank\nCaliendo" "Code\nMonkey" "Korean\nBreakers" \
  -menu-title "My Favorite YouTube Videos" -menu-font DieNasty \
  -menu-fontsize 36 -title-color '#ff7700' -title-stroke black \
  -titles-font DieNasty -titles-fontsize 22 -titles-color '#ff7700' \
  -showcase monkey-highlight.png -showcase-titles-align east \
  -bgaudio monkey.wav -rotate 5 -wave default \
  -submenus -submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
  "Frank Caliendo on Dave Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
  "Poppin in the Streets of Korea" -submenu-title-color '#ff7700' \
  -submenu-stroke black -submenu-length 20 -submenu-audio \
  amateur.wav caliendo.wav monkey.wav poppin.wav \
  -out MyFavoriteYouTube

But this article only describes the portion below. Read about the main menu if you like.

-submenus -submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
"Frank Caliendo on Dave Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
"Poppin in the Streets of Korea" -submenu-title-color '#ff7700' \
-submenu-stroke black -submenu-length 20 -submenu-audio \
amateur.wav caliendo.wav monkey.wav poppin.wav

Basics Edit

Just like the options for the main menu, there are several useful options for submenus. Take a look at the difference they can make:

Comparing -submenu styles
Simplest possible This example
Static submenu simplest

Well, it's ok. (I guess...)

Static Code Monkey

oooh! Pretty!

Breaking down the submenu portion, the commands look like:

Turning on Edit

Tell todisc to make static chapter menus.

-submenus

Background Edit

Tell todisc to use different background audio for each chapter submenu. The audio files were taken from their respective videos.

-submenu-audio amateur.wav caliendo.wav monkey.wav poppin.wav

But don't use the whole length of each file. Who wants a 3 minute menu? 20 seconds is long enough.

-submenu-length 20

Bottom titles Edit

Set the titles for each submenu. Notice these are in the same order as given in -files.

-submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
 "Frank Caliendo on Dave Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
 "Poppin in the Streets of Korea"

Set the title font and its properties.

-submenu-title-color '#ff7700' -submenu-stroke black

Animated Edit

Animated Korean Breakers

An animated chapter submenu

Watch this menu on YouTube.

The -ani-submenus option tells todisc to make animated chapter menus for each video on the DVD.


Generating command Edit

The generating command in its entirety is:

$ tovid disc -files amateur.mpg caliendo.mpg monkey.mpg poppin.mpg \
  -titles "Amateur" "Frank\nCaliendo" "Code\nMonkey" "Korean\nBreakers" \
  -menu-title "A Few Great YouTube Videos" -menu-font SudburyBasin3D \
  -menu-fontsize 31 -title-color '#0010c3' -title-stroke '#90b3ff' \
  -titles-font SudburyBasin3D -titles-fontsize 24 -titles-color '#0010c3' \
  -bgaudio poppin.wav -showcase poppin.mpg -showcase-seek 0 \
  -ani-submenus -submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
  "Frank Caliendo on Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
  "Poppin in the streets of Korea" -submenu-title-color '#0010c3' \
  -submenu-stroke '#90b3ff' -submenu-audio batida-urbana.mp3 \
  -out GreatYouTubeVideos

But this article only describes the portion below. Read about the main menu if you like.

  -ani-submenus -submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
  "Frank Caliendo on Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
  "Poppin in the streets of Korea" -submenu-title-color '#0010c3' \
  -submenu-stroke '#90b3ff' -submenu-audio batida-urbana.mp3

Basics Edit

Just like the options for the main menu, there are several useful options for submenus. Take a look at the difference they can make:

Comparing -ani-submenu styles
Simplest possible This example
Animated submenu simplest

Well, it's ok. (I guess...)

Animated Korean Breakers

oooh! Pretty!

Breaking down the submenu portion, the commands look like:

Turning on Edit

Tell todisc to make animated chapter menus.

-ani-submenus

Background Edit

Tell todisc to use the same background audio for each chapter submenu. The audio file was taken from the mp3 in the tovid demo.

-submenu-audio batida-urbana.mp3

Unlike static submenus (which use the whole length of the supplied audio file), we don't need to supply -submenu-audiolength SECONDS to trim the chapter menus to a reasonable length. Since these submenus are animated, todisc makes each menu 10 seconds long automatically.

Bottom titles Edit

Set the titles for each submenu. Notice these are in the same order as given in -files.

-submenu-titles "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
 "Frank Caliendo on Letterman" "Code Monkey music video" \
 "Poppin in the Streets of Korea"

Set the title font and its properties.

-submenu-title-color '#0010c3' -submenu-stroke-color '#90b3ff'
