Multiple Timelines using same video Encore CS3

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using Encore CS3

I have a single video that I am using in two different timelines. One timeline plays start to end with chapter points if you want to skip. The other is accessed through a menu and is designed to play a single chapter then return to the menu. The menus, linking etc all works fine. What isn't working is the build is creating multiple lots of data for the vid when it is used in two timelines.

My understanding of this may be wrong but I would have thought that because encore allows you to place multiple versions of a vid into different timelines that when encoding it would only place one version of the vid on the disc. Am I wrong?

Cheers Peter

You are using the wrong method to achieve what you want. In order for Encore to not duplicate the video, you must create a chapter playlist for the video that plays just one chapter.

One button will link to the timeline normally, the other button will link to a chapter playlist that just has the one chapter in it.

See if that works out for you.
