Thread: another encore problem

    Default another encore problem

    ive now finished my menu and everythings looking good and it all works fine.. the only thing is that when a button is selected -for example the play button, it just jumps to the movie and doesnt look good. - is there anyway of fading out the audio and video on the menu when a button is pressed???

    cheers

    No. When you select a menu item, you're essentialy jumping to another part of the disc. Commercial DVDs get around this by going to an itermediary file first, for example playing a sound as a button is clicked, then moving on to the video. So your routing goes: button > blank video and fake audio > movie.

    Just top expand a little on what Marc said.

    in Encore save your menu as a PSD. Import this into Premiere (or your NLE of choice). Pop it on a timeline and then apply a fade-out filter of yoru choosing. Similar for audio.

    Export this as MPEG2. Import the MPEG2 into Encore onto another timeline.

    Now set your button press to play first the fade-out clip you just made and then your actual movie.

    It will never be quite seamless (see any commercial DVD to prove it) but you button press will now appear to fade the menu away before playing your movie.

    It's not a limitation of the software. It's a limitation of the format.

    Think of it like an audio CD. Songs fad in and fade out as your play a CD on a player. But if you skip to another track halfway through, the audio jumps from one song to another. The same is true of a DVD. When you press a button on the menu, you skip from one track to another.
