Hi there,
I've been trying work this out but... I have a string of music promos that I want to be able to:-

1 play end to end (yes this is easy)
2 play individual tracks, i.e. play from chapter 3 to chapter 4 and then return to the menu.

I'm struggling to work out how to from one button the file plays from start to end and from other buttons, it would play between two chapters.

Thanks

You'd want to use DVDSP Stories for this.......they act like play lists in iTunes. Check in the manual or look online...there are tons of tutorials and they are easy to use. Check back if you run into a snag.

You can also do this with scripting if stories isn't doing what you want. I've actually done it this way vs. stories in the past because I'm a weirdo I guess.

I suck at explaining scripting, but I believe I learned it from here originally: http://digitalproducer.digitalmedianet.com/article/Conditional-Chapter-Jump...

Thanks Kylee and Eric, I did have a go with scripting but my head exploded, Stories did the trick after a little fiddling.

having been an editor for more than 30 years many of those in tape suites where there was always an assistant or three around to do all this kind of thing, This old dog is having to learn new tricks :-)

Yea, scripting is crazy, especially if you've never done any programming before. Good to know it exists though, if only for you to tell someone else to do it :)
