    Default Pulling a short sequence in encore DVD

    Hi,

    I'm using Encore DVD 1.5 to author my sailing holiday DVD. I want to put a menu in which links to a short clip (5 seconds) of each crew member. I've created the menu with the buttons named for each crew member, but cant work out how to select small chunks of the mpeg footage to link to each button.

    Can anyone help?

    Having thought a little longer about this, I suppose another way to ask the question is how do I determine the length of time a chapter plays for? Surely, with say four chapters, if I click to play chapter 1, I don't want it to play the whole of the movie from there - only as far as the end of chapter 1.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but you simply will not do this in version 1.5. Creating an end action for an individual chapter is a new feature of version 2.

    In v1.5 you will need individual clips. Depending on the structure/contents of your entire DVD it may be possible tobuild the thing without clip duplication with your main movie being some sort of 'play all' type option.
