with some help from replies to other questions I managed to get a working DVD/BR with cool 2.0 / 5.1 sound and subtitles.
But for now I do have to select the audio track manually and also I do have to enable subtitles from the DVD/BR players menu.
So I wanted to add a DVD/BR menu where you can choose the audio track which should be played and to switch on and of subtitles.
I edited a nice PS PSD File with some buttons and they show up in Encore and I can do some "encore" editig like moving tham arrond or link to some other elements.
My question: How do I get e.g. the Button "2.0 Stereo" to select the stereo track and the button "5.1 Surround" to select the 5.1 track. An other button should switch on/off the right subtitle
Than I'd like to have a button which starts the video with the selected audio and if selected subtitle on.
At the end of the movie I like to be back in the menu.
I bet thats simple
I thought to create different timelines and add the audio/video/subtitle, but that i have a lot of timelines in all sort of combinations; e.g. video ON, 5.1 sound ON, subtitle OFF ..... video ON, 2.0 sound ON, subtitle ON etc ....
Thansk for any suggestion . and BIG thanks. Götz
Congratulations on your successes so far! This should help:
Audio and Subtitle Track Navigation.
Use the "specify link."
Puhhhh ... finaly I'm close to the goal.
I do have two more question:
1. One of my menu items dont show his selected upb picture (dont know teh correct english description ... sorry); its like the shadow when it is selected.
2. When ever I click on one menue button, the film starts instantly with that e.g. audio track selecte.
But I'd like
a) select an audio track and
b) than select subtitles on/off and
c) klick a start button with this selected options.
Is that possible? If yes how ...
Thanks once more! Regards.
I want this done before Christmas
Hi thanks once more for your hint.
So far I do have the menue:
- selecting the wanted audio track (e.g. stereo 2.0 // suround 5.1)
- selecting subtitles
- start the movie with the selected audio/subtitle.
But now I have one more question:
For now I cant get an indication of which audio track is selected or if the subtitles are on or of....
I added two layers for each button and tried with (=1) / (=3) ... if I move the mouse over the button in preview mode, the button changes his apereance as expected (I added a √ symbol). But when I click the button it dose not change his apereance (while the wanted auditrack is selectet.)
I added an Screenshot; may be im on the wron path ? Would be great if somewone could help me !
In the Button Layer Sets, shown to the lower right, I do not see any Sub-picture Highlight Layers. What did you want to happen, to indicate that each Button has been highlighted?
Here is a look at a Scene Selection Menu, with the "Zone 1" Button highlighted - a "Dot." Notice the Button's Layer Set (the only one twirled open) in the Layer's Palette in Photoshop.
Hope that helps, and good luck,
Thanks for your posting, but there is the higlight Layer.
I opend the menue in photoshot once more and enabled the layers.
For me a button has the following different states:
So I'd liked to indicate which audio track is enabled/selected and if subtitles are off or on.
I thought, the highlight button states are markend with (=1) & (=3) ....
BTW. in encore menue edit mode, if I click the show selected/activated Subpicture Highlight, the right layer shows up (with my √-symbol)
But in preview mode or on a burned dvd this did not work

Having the currently active language/subtitle tracks indicated is a menu property setting. You set the default button (which will show with the selected state) as "Active Audio Track or Active Subtitle Track":
Also, the =1 vs =2 (and =3), is not "selected" vs "activated" vs normal. In Encore, select a menu, then look at Menu -> Edit Menu Color Set. You will see in Highlight group 1, that #1, 2, and 3 each has a highlighted and activated color. Those 1, 2, 3's correspond to =1, =2 and =3. So when yoiu set layers in PS and make one layer =1 and another =2, you are not setting one to be the selected appearance and another the activated, but you are setting one layer to use #1's selected/activated colors and the other #2's. This isn't usually apparent because most of us are probably letting Encore do all this with "automatic" color sets (based on the colors in PS).
