making first play movie unskippable
on Dec 14, 2005 at 7:33:23 pm

Seems like a simple thing, but I am having no luck searching the COW and elsewhere for this.

My client simply wants a short disclaimer screen to appear as the first play, and he wants to make it impossible to skip to the root menu while its onscreen.

What authoring software allows this and what's the procedure?

thanks

Any authoring application that allows you to set which "user operations" are allowed will make what you ask for possible.

[Jason Powell] "What authoring software allows this and what's the procedure?"

The short answer is you turn off the allowed operations for the first play title.
Which application do you want to use?

I'm open to suggestions. I used iDVD at my previous employer, but I'm PC based currently.

I'd like something with the ease of iDVD but deep enough control to do things like this.

Since you are PC based, Author your disc in ANY Authoring application you want, and burn the DVD to your hard drive. Then open it with the free utility PGCedit -- it will let you enable/disable UOP's :)

hth,

This can easily be done (I've done it a few times) with the free ifoedit utility.

here's the instructions:

FORCE FIRST PLAY:

Compile your disc so you have a Video_ts folder.
run IfoEdit
click on 'open'

choose VTS_01_0.IFO

double click to select the VTS_PGCITI

double click to select the VTS_PGC_1

double click the 000008 heading (prohibited ops)

check all, save and exit.
