chapter end action
on Jan 23, 2006 at 9:05:20 pm

The 2.0 user manual does not mention chapter end actions.
Does this mean I would need to create chapter playlists consisting of only one chapter as a work around to have chapter end actions? Thanks...

(I have one huge timeline of continuous video and need each chapter to be able to play separately when linked from individual buttons. I'm trying to do this without having to have each chapter as separate timelines, now that 2.0 supposedly gives me this option.)

Here's what you do:

1. Set an end point for each chapter in your timeline to return to the menu (or do whatever it is you want it to do).
2. Create a chapter playlist that has all the chapters in sequence.

What happens with a chapter point end action is that any time you enter that chapter, whether from a button or from a previous point in the timeline, it will execute the end action at the end; it's just as if it were it's own timeline. As always, overrides can also apply to the end action.

Using the chapter playlist function lets you assemble chapters in any order, it handles the end action routing automatically.

I was able to achieve what I wanted, I think, without having to create any chapter lists. All the client wanted was for each chapter to be able to play individually. I just selected each chapter marker and assigned them their own end actions. Very helpful new feature. Thanks!
