I have a wedding video I just completed and am using Encore for the DVD authoring for the first time.
I created a layered PSD file and made the button out of a text object. -- Play movie
I just want the menu to loop with background music, until play is pressed and then the movie plays.
When I preview the authored version in Encore...it looks, navigates and plays fine. When I authored the DVD, it starts in black video with music, then gets to the end of the audio track and plays the movie.
How I set the audio for the menu is in the menu tab, with the menu page selected, the properties tab has a *motion* tab and a link for audio...that's where I set the audio for the menu.
P.S. On a second note...I recorded the wedding from my DV cam right into a DVD recorder, and then took that DVD and pulled off the .VOB file...they were seperated (over 1 gig) and I had to join them. When I take the joined .VOB file into Encore, for some reason it is transcoding the video...even though I am telling it not to, why? Does it have to re-transcode to split files up that are larger than 1GB?
