Moving chapter points

Chapter 1 is always positioned at the zero point on the timeline. It cannot be moved except by trimming the movie — see Trimming movies for details.

To move other chapter points:

  • Double-click the movie’s icon in the Project window.

  • In the Timeline window, click the chapter point or its label to select it.

  • Do one of the following:
  • Drag the selected chapter point along the timeline.

  • Press the left or right arrow keys on your keyboard to move the selected chapter point in one-frame or one-GOP increments. Hold down the Ctrl key while pressing an arrow key to move the chapter point in one-second increments.

To move a chapter point to a specific timecode:

  • Double-click the chapter point in the Timeline window. The Edit Chapter dialog box appears.

  • Type the desired timecode in the Position box.

  • Click the OK button.

Note: If the movie has an MPEG video track, DVDit Pro moves the chapter point to the nearest GOP boundary. This could be up to nine frames from the specified frame in an NTSC project or six frames in a PAL project, depending on the GOP size.
