Music background in main menu
on Nov 25, 2006 at 5:50:30 pm

Alright hi! Are you ready for another question? Here goes...
On the main menu I have a video background 8secs long that loops (i just set loop to forever, i don't think i have to do anything else) and I want to add a musical background as well. the problem is that the song is 44 secs long. So I can't loop the menu at 8secs. Can I have the audio as the background looping at 44secs while the video loops at 8secs? Or is there a workaround?

Thanks in advance for any volunteers.

The way to work around this is to extend the menu to the same length as the music.
DVD-Video is graphically/Visually dominant & Audio subservient - this means the Audio will always follow the video, and never vice-versa.
So, nip into your NLE and extend the menu time (Copy/Paste) by 6 times making it 48 seconds long - you'll need to trim to make it 44 seconds.

Cannot think of another answer (although someone else might be able to)

That's the only way- video and audio cannot loop independently in a motion menu in DVD-Video, unless you employ the trick that Neil outliines.

Alright guys I'll try that way. Actually I will have to trim the audio, not the video, otherwise the video won't loop and that's worse...

Thanks!

Wait! Not done yet unfortunately...
Do I have to make this new video in Premiere or can I make a timeline in Encore pasting the copies sequentially and linking that somehow to the menu?

Forgive my newbieness.

Do it all in Premiere.

And it's the video you want to loop, not the audio- make them the same length in Premiere and export an AVI.
