I was surprised when I played the disk burned to DVD, that the program inserted a title menu (with annoying music) which just sat on the screen until I clicked on Play Movie. Then the film played fine. Here are the particulars:
If there are no more menu markers to delete, and there is nothing on the Timeline before 00:00:00:00, how do I get rid of this blasted thing? There must be some "secret" menu screen that I am missing, or something.
I do not want to burn another Taiyo Yuden DVD, only to find a disk menu actually appears again.
I always seem to get these "hard case" problems, nicht wahr?
I would go to the Create Menus Tab, and make sure that AutoPlay is checked.
Does that clear the offending Menu?
PS - To keep from burning T-Y "coaster," pick up a 5-pack of RW DVD's, and use those to test with. I nearly always Burn to Folder, then test on software DVD players, then burn that to an RW disc, for testing on several DVD/BD players, and finally, commit to a T-Y.
All is well. I found a Bill Hunt response to a similar question from a couple of years ago. Of course, Bill knows everything, and his answer about switching to the AutoPlay button, which clears the menu screen, solved the problem. I can burn another disk with the appropriate diminished fear level.
Question is, why is this procedure not discussed in the instruction manual, nor is it addressed in any of the tv.adobe show/learn videos? If I had a buck for every hour stumbling around, trying to find answers to maneuvering with these complex programs, I would have a lot larger nest egg!
Thanks, Bill, for your earlier answer.
I am with both you and Neale.
If one knows the exact conventions used, the exact word(s), then Help Files can work. However, if one is off, by just one character, all is lost. It does not help that Adobe uses different terms, to refer to the exact same operation, say between Premiere Pro and Premiere Elements. Of course, there are even greater differences if one knows the terms for a program, like Photoshop, and for similar operations, in Premiere, the terms have all changed.
I understand why Adobe (and many other software companies) loves on-line Help Files, as they can be appended, or amended, instantly, and cost less, than printed books do. Hoever, there is a dark side - the need to know the exact terms.
As Neale points out, if one knows the answers, then Help Files are useful, otherwise, well maybe not so much.
