Avid DVD by Sonic still not resolved
on Nov 18, 2011 at 1:58:12 pm

I am having an issue with authoring.

I want a playing title (from a menu page) to return to the menu it was selected from when the menu button (on remote) is pressed.

I can only get the both pages of titles (or selections) to go to either the first OR second menu page (there are only two). I can't find a way to make each title something different.

Can anyone help? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know if AVID DVD supports it,
but this can be realised by scripting commands only as known from Scenarist, DVDStudioPro & Spruce DVD Maestro.

Thank you Andreas,

So - do you think I should just get one of these other authoring programs?

Mmmh,

maybe DVD Studio Pro is the best choice if your workflow is Mac based!
You are able to set conditions & playlists to match your needs.

Scenarist takes a huge learning curve. It's the most advanced & also the most complicated tool because there is no abstraction layer! ;)

Spruce DVD Maestro is a discontinued PC based product since Spruce was aquired by Apple. ;)

For PC based workflow maybe DVDlab Pro can be a choice?
(CSS implementation is not possible!)

I am PC based... they do have a version of SP for windows... I was just reading about it.

I just can't wrap my head around - my program not having this option. I know it must be there... but I can't seem to get it to work properly. And of course with revisions on my edid and all this tinkering... I somehow just blew away the whole menu for my second disk. It's quite a day.

I was also looking at Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus - I used to love Uleads Workshop2... but they don't do 16:9 or HD... it was a long time ago - but the product was great.

"CSS" - not sure what that stands for - but if it's what I've been talking about - I HAVE to have that option.

Oh well, I suppose I'll come up with something. Thanks for all your help.

Do you have the ability to create different playlists from the same asset in AVID DVD?
If so, create an extra playlist for each button starts the same content & link that from & back to the button where it come from!

yes, I can create playlists. I will try. I've never had to work with playlists before... there is a first time for everything.

Thanks again.
Lori
