A chapter is an invisible mark in the video that helps you navigate through the film as you are watching it.  Instead of fast-forwarding to a specific point you can jump at intervals, these intervals are chapter points that you can determine here.

By default Womble EasyDVD will automatically create a chapter point at start of each video clip(s) if you add a Movie(Title) with one or more video clip(s). For example, I have added a Title with three video clips, select the Title(Movie 1) and your will notice there are three chapter points which are displayed as yellow-colored marks along the top edge of the video preview window's timeline.

Note: this operation will replace all the previously set chapters.

2. Add chapters manually

Select the Movie you want to add chapters, the movie will appear in the right video preview window. You will notice the video preview window is in the Movie mode. (Due to the difference between an EasyDVD Movie and a video clip, the video preview window will switch between the Movie mode and the Clip mode, depending on whether the current selection of the Source is a Movie item or a video clip item. A quick identification for the two modes is the play button color: Movie: blue; Clip: yellow. )
