Continues Audio throughout menu?
on Nov 16, 2010 at 9:57:28 am

Hello friends.

I have a menu with around 22 menus an sub-menus.

I have a looping video background in 12 of the menus, and the rest don't have any motion.

My question is- is there a way to create a continues audio track that will play throughout the whole menu? Without loading every time from the begging.

I want it to start playing once the main menu shows up, and simply keep running until one of the timelines buttons is played.

I know this might not be possible, but I thought I'd ask any way. If someone has a different idea for how to create a continues audio effect throughout the menu I'd be happy to hear!!

Thanks a lot,
Shlomi

Shlomi,

Unfortunately the DVD spec does not allow for audio to run continuously when you change menus. It will always start playing the audio from the new menu.

Have fun!

Thankyou for the reply.

Is there no creative way to do this? It's absolutely impossible?

Thanks again,
Shlomi

You can use sufficiently repetitive background music - see the DVD menus for Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The music is simple and repeats itself frequently, so that starting the music over with the next menu is hardly noticeable.

You can also use button transitions, where the audience is treated to a short video/audio clip between menus. So when the new menu appears and the music starts over, it will feel right to them.
