• Click the Add VTS button along the top of the Outline tab.

A project can have up to 99 VTS blocks. The actual number of VTS blocks you can have
depends on the number of stories in your project. Even though stories do not get placed
in their own actual VTS blocks (they share the VTS block that contains the track they are
related to), they use virtual VTS blocks. For example, a project with five stories can have
a maximum of 94 actual VTS blocks.

If any VTS blocks are empty when you build the project, you are asked if you want them
to be deleted. While it does not violate compatibility with the DVD specification to have
empty VTS blocks in the build, they do use a small amount of disc space. Additionally,
each VTS block that does not contain a track or slideshow reduces by one the total number
of tracks, slideshows, and stories your project can have.
