Building a DVD project for a touchscreen and the user wont have a remote. I would like to be able to interrupt a video timeline and go back to the menu by having the user touch the screen. I could do that with an invisible button that fills the screen, but can I add this button to a timeline?
Is it possible to do this in encore without putting all the videos in menus?
I am glad to hear that DVD Studio Pro does allow that, once my budget allows I will be getting a new FCP system. My previous experience has been doing it on the old Sonic DVD Producer and Scenarist systems Even though Encored doesn't hold a torch to what you can do in those systems, I was a little surprised that it didn't allow me to create that simple button.
Since I needed the Titles on the DVD for a scanner attached to the system. What I did as a work around is create a timeline for each piece of video with a 1 second clip of black and had those branch to the corresponding menus were I had the actual video with the button. I hate having all those Orphaned clips, but this is just a presentation piece playing on a dedicated system and it seems to work. However those 1 second clips really slows down the user's experience.
