Each cell in a program chain is uniquely defined by a set of two numbers: a VOB id
and cell id. A VOB id is a 16-bit quantity and can be from 1 to 65535. A cell id,
however, is an 8-bit quantity and can be from 1 to 255. When a cell is split into
two or more scenes, Scenarist creates additional cells (corresponding to the new
scenes) in the PGC with the same VOB id and the next available sequential cell id.
This method implies a maximum of 255 scenes per original cell. In other words, if
we import a single large video clip into Scenarist, we can break this clip to a
maximum of 255 smaller segments or chapters. The upper limit imposed by the cell id
is more than sufficient in most practical situations.
The duration of the first scene is now much shorter than its original duration since
the first scene contains the video portion which has the embedded logo. Scenarist
truncates the length of the cell of chapter 1 to reflect the new duration of the
first scene. By default, the second scene is disconnected from the current playback
flow. To continue the second scene immediately after the first scene, we select the
second scene from the Tracks tab of the Asset Manager window and drop it to the
first program icon as following.
Scenarist creates the second cell so that program 1 now contains two cells. The two
cells represent the two scenes which contiguously comprise the original first chapter.
The second cell is seamless by default. If the cell icon is obscured because it
is positioned underneath other cell icons, we can drag the icon and reposition it
right below the first cell to line up with the first program icon as following.
