Simulating a Slideshow

Simulating a slideshow allows you to fully test a slideshow, including its pauses and
DVD@CCESS settings.

To simulate a slideshow
Do one of the following:


Select the slideshow, then choose File > Simulate Slideshow, or press Command-Option-0


Control-click the slideshow in the Outline tab, then choose Simulate from the shortcut


In the Slideshow tab, Control-click a slide, then choose Simulate from the shortcut menu.

These options force the Simulator to start at this slideshow instead of the First Play
connection, as it does when started by clicking Simulator in the toolbar.

Once the slideshow starts playing, you can use the Simulator’s controls to test the pauses.

Introduction to Subtitles

Each track can include up to 32 subtitle streams. Having multiple streams makes it possible
to offer text in several languages, allowing the viewer to select the appropriate one.

Increasingly, subtitles are being used for other purposes, such as to create buttons over
video (also known as interactive markers or interactive subtitles), which allow the viewer
to make choices while watching the movie. You can also use subtitles to supply simple
graphics to augment the video, such as arrows and lines.
