We have a client who wants to do a DVD for an awards banquest that will have as many as 90 short videos (one for each winner) and will require a menu button to call up each video. Has anyone done anything like this before and have any advice? We use Sonic DVD It Pro. Thanks much.
Yikes! Sounds like a long awards banquet. The way I would do this would depend on the way the meeting is run - if it's run by some hack with just a DVD player and a remote, the way I would do it would be to create just one track with a chapter marker where each recipient starts. you could put two seconds of black between each one, and the user could pause between each recipient if they needed to. They could skip chapters if they needed to as well. To manage everything I would suggest a series of menus that are ordered alphebetically, with each button jumping to that person's chapter.
I'd love to have more information about the meeting - are the segments going to be played back-to-back or with pauses between? How long are they?
