delay for menu buttons??
on Mar 14, 2006 at 2:57:02 pm

Hi all!
I want to make a menu that has a song and a little piece of video with the menu buttons flying around and then ends with every button in their properly position. The problem is i cant find anyway to delay the start of the buttons on the menu. The only way i found to do this is to break in two parts. The first is only a video with the music and the buttons flying and ends exactly when every button is in the correct position. The second part is the menu with the music starting where the first part ended.
The problem is there is a little cut in sound and video that i dont like.
Is there anyway, on a menu, to delay the buttons for a time??

thks in advance!

You would need to trim the subpicture to the point where it is supposed to start. It's easy in Scenarist, but I have no idea how to do that in Encore since menus don't have timelines (I'm not that well versed in it, anyway). Maybe someone else has an idea?

Use the Loop Point parameter in Menu properties to determine both when the buttons become active, and what timedcode value the menu loops back to.

To control when buttons appear, you would use After Effects or PPro to build your motion menu background.

Scenarist is one of the most powerful DVD Authoring software out there. Way more powerful then Encore. That power comes with a price though, the last time I checked it cost around $20,000

And you'd better know the DVD-Video specification cold, because Scenarist doesn't offer any easy shortcuts, either. :)

Hi all
Joe, I tried the loop point and it works very well!!. Thanks again.
A question more please. If i want a song for the menu, 03:00 long, but the video animation is about 00:15 only and then becomes static, need i to make a video file 03:00 long??.

Scenarist sound well... ill go to the bank this morning. :P
