In this tutorial I show how to create Chapter/Scene Selection Points for a video that will be burnt to DVD or Blu-ray disc.

I will be using Sony DVD Architect Studio and Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 during the tutorial, however these instructions will also work in most versions of Movie Studio Platinum, Vegas Pro and DVD Architect Pro as well.

There are two ways you can add Chapter Points and Scene Markers.

#1 One way and probably the best way, is to add the points to your video while you are still in Vegas Movie Studio before you Render your video. In this video tuturial I show you how to render a DVD or BluRay Disc file using either Version 11 or Version 10 of Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum.

#2 You can also add Chapter Points to a Video if it is already in DVD Architect Studio 5.0. I will show you how to do this in the video as well.

    That's great! But I have a follow up question... Now that I've got all these swell Chapters, how do I convert those to Menu Options? It's all well and good to have chapters, but I want the end user to be able to select a chapter of their choice from the main menu. i.e.: Jump to Chapter 12. How do I do that?

      Hi Bruce
      Sorry for delay in responding to your question. I have been in hospital for three weeks and have just started feeling well enough to answer emails again, since returning home.
      If you send me an email to with your quetion, I can send you back some screen shots which will show you what to do.

    Your tutorials are very helpful. Thank you! I have a question: Is it possible to set up scene selection/chapters so that only the scene plays and then on the DVD returns to the scene selection menu? Thanks, Cynthia Matthews
