Adding Menue Audio Track selection and soubtitles on/off

Hi,

 

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."

    Although late, I found out that you have to link each selection button to itself agian. By doing so the setup menu stays and the audio or subtitle track is selected.

     

    Best regards

    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.

     

    Sub-picture_Highlight_Layer.png
    That particular example has a Vector Mask, to limit the Sub-picture Highlight Layer to that little "Dot." Depending on what you wish to have display, that Vector Mask might not be necessary.

     

    Hope that helps, and good luck,

     

    Hunt

    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).
