Subtitle menu in DVD studio pro 4
on Nov 30, 2010 at 3:02:59 pm

Hi!
I have 7 clips and each clip has 2 subtitle tracks, English and Italian. I wanted to create DVD where the viewer first chooses language from the first menu and then goes to the second menu with 7 clips. Is that possible id DVD studio pro 4? Or do you know some better solution for this?

Hi Zeljko,
I would do this with scripting, that wouldn´t be that complicated. Your first menu-buttons (language-select) would jump to a script where you automatically set an language ID.

1st button would be english, 2nd italian. so you would get the button-ID out of SPRM8 and set it as a language ID to GPRM1.

1. move SPRM8 to GPRM1
2. div GPRM1 by 1024
3. jump to the next menu button no.1

you´ll need to divide GPRM1 by 1024 because otherwise you´ll get values like 1024 or 2048.

within the next menu you should link from every button to another script.

1. if GPRM1 = 1 then set subtitle/audio (english)
2. if GPRM1 = 2 then set subtitle/audio (italian)
3. jump film 1, 2, ....

if you´ll read out SPRM8 within this menu you can do a if GPRM2=1, 2, 3... then jump film 1, 2, ... as well, but you need to keep the language ID, so you need to read out SPRM8 (again) to another GPRM, for example GPRM 2.

note: this is not the 100% correct syntax of DVD SP-scriping, but it´ll show you the way as it could be done.

cheers

Hi again,
you should learn the basics first!

here´s a good website that can show it to you:
http://www.dvdstudiopro.ch/english/index.html

there is also a lot information within DVDSP user manual.

I guess that will help.

cheers

That site has been linked to before, everything on it is for DVDSP 1.5 which was a totally different program than what we have now. There was a total rewrite of DVDSP.

oh damned - you´re right,
I thought it was for DVD SP 2 and newer as well. sorry.

so we need to go a different way.

here is the 1st script, that you need to link to from the language-select-menu, first button should be english, 2nd button should be italian, both buttons jump to this script.

with this script you set a specific value for for each language

value 1 for english, value 2 for italian.


language-ID-script:

1 mov GPRM0, SPRM 8
2 div GPRM0, 1024
3 jumbo main menu: button 1


next one will be the track selction-script, which will set the subtitle and jump to your specific title. all your main menu-button should link to that script

track-select-script
1 mov GRPM1, SPRM 8
2 div GPRM1, 1024
3 set system stream St(1 (On) if GPRM 0=1)
4 set system stream St(2 (On) if GPRM 0=2)
5 jump track 1::chapter1 if (GPRM 1=1)
6 jump track 2::chapter1 if (GPRM 1=2)
7 jump track 3::chapter1 if (GPRM 1=3)
....
x jump track x ::chapter1 if (GPRM 1=x)

you see that you need to jump to your specific tracks. button 1-track 1, button 2-track 2 and so on...

I hope this would help.

cheers

danny
