Title and Chapter Editing

Edits you make to the Original content changes the
actual content of the disc. For example, if you delete a
title or chapter from the Original content (Title or
Chapter), that title or chapter is deleted from the disc,
freeing up extra recording time.
When you edit the Playlist, on the other hand, you are
not changing the content of the disc. For example,
when you delete a title from the Playlist, you are just
telling the recorder not to play that title; nothing is actu-
ally deleted from the disc.

Titles, Chapters and Parts

Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or more
chapters. When you insert a title into the Playlist, all the
chapters within that title also appear. In other words,
chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as chapters on a
DVD-Video disc do. Parts are sections of Original or
Playlist titles. From the Original and Playlist menu you
can add or delete parts. Adding a chapter or title to the
Playlist creates a new title made up of a section (ie.,
chapter) of an Original title. Deleting a part removes
part of a title from the Original or Playlist menu.


• When editing using the Delete, Add and Move func-

tions, the start and end frames may not be exactly as
set in the start and end point display.

• During Playlist playback, you may notice a momen-

tary pause between edits. This is not a malfunction.

Adding Chapter Markers

You can put a chapter marker anywhere in a Playlist or
Original title during recording or playback.
Once the chapter is marked, you can use the Chapter
Search feature, as well as delete, combine and move
chapters in the Chapter List-Original or Chapter List-
Playlist menu.
You can insert up to 999 chapter markers in both the
Original and Playlist contents.


Chapter markers are inserted at regular intervals auto-
matically. You can change this interval from the Initial
Setup menu (see Auto Chapter on page 27).
