Encoding Video for Multi-Angle Tracks
DVD Studio Pro supports multi-angle and mixed-angle video. With multi-angle video, a
track can contain up to eight alternate video streams that last the entire length of the
main stream (for a total of nine video streams per track). With mixed-angle video, the
alternate streams do not last the entire length of the main stream, so you can have
alternate streams in only those locations where they are needed, saving disc space. In
either case, the viewer can switch among angles using the Angle button on the remote
Because different MPEG encoders can produce slightly different GOP structures, you
should use the same encoder for all streams.
Note: Switching angles while playing a DVD affects only the video playback. The audio
remains on the currently selected stream.
