Setting End Jump to go to Previous Menu
on Dec 19, 2011 at 6:47:13 pm

In Studio Pro, is there a way to set a track's end jump to go to the previous menu.

I have a track, but there are two menus from which it can be played: a main menu and a chapter menu. When the track is done playing, I want it to go to whichever menu it was accessed from.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Just create two playlists from the movie with different end actions and link each of them with the desired buttons in the desired menu insteed of linking the movie!

Sure you can do that unless your have to sacrifice quality to fit to on a disc. You can set a story up to do it also. No extra space and the story can have its own end jump.

But the right way is to script it and end jump to the script.

Story = Playlist!

Scripting is not the one and only RIGHT WAY, it's just one of two different ways!
Scripting is more complicated for less experienced users.
So realizing it by playlist / mutlti story can archive what he want without scripting in a reliable way!
Using a playlist or what you called "story" (is called different in authoring applications) will not consume extra space on disc if some rules will be respected because the abstraction layer gives sometimes unwanted side effects.
I'm using Scenarist & I really know what scripting is! ;)

Thank you all very much.

I ended up just creating a story and end jumping it.

Is that not what I said. While stories are quick and easy, scripting is cleaner. Some players do not display things like time when in a story. Not a big deal and I do use them.

But thanks for flexing your muscles and touting your superior knowledge.
