I love creating movies, and I've always been especially intrigued with well-done DVD menus. Some of the advanced options in DVD creation software (I used Encore) have left me with an idea, but I'm faltering on how to execute it.
Imagine you've made a DVD about the Red Team vs the Blue Team. When the DVD is started, it's easy enough to make the first menu as a selection screen where the user is prompted to select their menu color: for example, a Red menu or a Blue menu. These seperate menus could of course then be loaded and have all your options and such. Here is where I'm hung up: if the user selects the blue menu, then plays the movie, the last action should be to return to the blue menu, as opposed to their menu selection. This must be possible, and I feel as though I'm missing something basic that would allow this. I've heard about advanced 'counting' options, and I know that the DVD format does allow for 16 integers to be stored in RAM, but I'm hoping I wouldn't need something so complex.
Any input? I'd love to make menus (redundant and inefficient for space as they may be) that can be customized based on user input. I imagine there could be many, many applications for something like this, and I'm surprised I haven't seen it done before.
