Adding buttons for email, websites and pdf on DVD
on Dec 6, 2005 at 5:34:55 pm

What DVD authoring software do people use to add buttons to a menu which will open up an email, or go to a website or open a pdf document?

Tried Sonic DVDit Pro 6 with eDVD and couldn't do it. Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Paul G.

What was the problem with Sonic's eDVD? It's really the best bet out there.

Alex,

Thanks for the reply.

Three of us have been banging our heads against the wall for a couple days trying to get DVDit Pro 6 and eDVD to do what we want - but we cannot figure out how.

We have authored a DVD in DVDit with 30 short video clips, a main menu leading to seven other menus. On one menu we want to have buttons for email, website and pdf. In eDVD we open the project and only the video clips are shown in the list, not the menus or buttons.

How can we link the email, website and pdf to buttons on a menu?

Thanks

Here is a review / tutorial I wrote to illustrate how eDVD works. It's very basic, but give it a read, and then see if this all makes more sense to you. If not, just write back to me and we'll go from there.

Thank you, Alex,

We have figured it out...you can only add weblinks to titles or slideshows,and we were trying to do it from menus. We used 3 buttons and linked each to its own slideshow, then went into eDVD and prompted the weblinks for each slideshow....that worked well.
