How to author a website address onto a dvd using architect?

by Nan


Thanks for such an informative site!!! I would like to know if it is possible to insert a graphic which links to a website when clicked. I am using Sony Architect. Is it possible to create hyperlinks/text? And finally is it possible to insert downloadable files in word, excel, and pdf formats???

Thanks again,

Glad to hear you are enjoying the site Nan :-)

Unfortunately, you cannot add a link to a DVD using Sony Architect, but you can add files to your DVD which customers can access on their computer.

The steps are:

1. Create or assemble all the material you are going to include on your DVD in a single folder on your computer.

2. Build and master the DVD as you would normally do using Architect.

3. Before you burn the DVD, add the folder containing your extra files.

4. Burn the DVD from the DVD folder you have prepared. Doing so will include the new data folder you added.

To make it easy for customers to use this bonus material, I recommend you include a video chapter in the DVD showing how to find and use the bonus material on the DVD.

Also include an insert card in the DVD case which mentions the bonus material and includes a link to a web page where viewers can find updates for the bonus material. (Including a link for web updates allows you to improve and enhance the material based on feedback from users. And it provides you correct any problems that might be in the bonus material).

Hope that helps?
