The Game

Dan Goldwasser Video Projects

After a long day at work, all I wanted to do was go home, and relax on the computer and totally veg out. Instead, my cable modem was down again. Adelphia will be coming over this afternoon to see what the deal is, so hopefully this will get resolved.

So what did I do last night? I did The Game. Having finished Disc 1 on Wednesday, I just plowed ahead with Disc 2! Capturing the footage from the Laserdisc was easy – editing it wasn’t much harder. After creating two nice menu screens, I authored it all together. There’s a bonus “previz” of the teaser on the laserdisc that wasn’t on the DVD, so that became the official “Easter Egg” of this DVD set. All in all, there’s a lot of material on this bonus disc, including 35 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage – with commentary! I love how easy it is to author stuff in Encore DVD, and now that I figured out how it handles Photoshop files with layers and layer sets for buttons, it’s even easier to make menus that look cool.
