Separate video from link in video buttons?
on Mar 10, 2009 at 10:13:03 pm

Hi,

I have a video button that links to a timeline (duh...). However, the video that I want to play in the button is only a portion of the video that it is linking to.

I have not managed to figure out how I can get the video button to play only a portion of the timeline it is linking to? Can anyone help?

Set the poster frame for the chapter marker that is the target of the button link. That will determine the starting point for the video in the button.

The poster frame doesn't have to be in the chapter that's linked; it can be anywhere in the timeline.

Thanks for answering.

I think I tried what you suggest though, and that it also made the video start playing at the poster when I click the button?

Can I also limit where it should stop playing in the video button and return to the poster? So that I don't have to show the video till the end in the button.

The poster frame determines where the video loop in the button begins. The loop ends when the menu duration is reached.

When you select the timeline chapter from the menu, playback begins at the chapter point, not at the poster frame.
