Is this possible? PLEASE HELP!!

I'd really like to use chapter markers to allow me to create two different 'edits' of the same piece.
I've tried this in DVD Studio Pro, using 'stories' but dont know for sure if I could get away with this on a pro project without gaps or glitches.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

The piece is made up of three sections, A, B and C.
the full piece runs as A-(transitionAtoB)-B-(transitionBtoC)-C.
the edit runs A-(transitionAtoC)-C.

If I make one long m2V that contains parts A,B and C, plus the three different transitions, all chaptermarked, can I make three 'stories' that are playlists of the chapters? Will I be able to do this without glitches, pauses etc during the playback?
It needs to be rock solidly reliable, too, across all types of player.

Oh, - and could I have the moon on a stick too please?

Thanks in advance!
Miller.

Well it really depends on the material- it would work like jump cuts essentially. But stories work well on any DVD player.

If I were to make it so that the video and audio match up perfectly, would I be able to guarentee that the actual act of moving between chapters wouldn't introduce a glitch or gap?

That does not work precisely with any authoring software I know of... There are ways to cheat, primarily by fading the audio out and then back in, but making precise and seamless cuts from chapter to chapter is not really possible.

thats pretty much what I wanted to know...
If there's no way of creating seamless jumps from chapter to chapter, there's no way I can do what I want to do.

I haven't used DVD Studio Pro, but Encore DVD 2.0 introduces chapter playlists and may be able to do what you want. Let me try it out this weekend and report back
