CS 5.1 playlist problem

Dec 3, 2012 4:54 AM

I have a number of short movies in one Encore project

 

There are no chapters other than at the start of each movie, each movie being is on its own timeline

 

I have one main menu and two sub menus, the main menu has two playlist buttons and the sub menus have a play button for each movie, each movie returns to its sub menu when it ends

 

I have two playlist buttons on the main menu, one to play a number of movies one after the other and the second playlist plays all the remaining movies

 

At the end of each playlist the DVD returns to the main menu

 

In a Bluray player and also a DVD player the first playlist plays OK the second repeats two of the movies

 

Any ideas what is the problem?

    In a Bluray player and also a DVD player

    Is this a DVD or BD?

     

    Please post a screenshot of your flowchart.

    Why all the overrides? With separate timelines, you don't need them.

     

    And for most of them, I think you get what you are currently setting by making the end action of the timeline to be "last menu."

    I do not understand your comments...

    end action of the timeline to be "last menu."

     

    What am I supposed to do when the timeline ends?

     

    I want the timeline to return to the menu from where it was chosen

     

    If I or any other Encore user does not set an end action you get an error message in Check Project

    Sorry if that was confusing. I think we agree. You want an end action for each timeline, and you want it to be "Return to Last Menu."

     

    From the flowchart, I believed that you were setting explicit end actions (which is okay), and worried that this might be creating a problem if there were any errors. Where you need the end actions to go to a specific place (or to the loop point on a menu, etc), you can't use "return to last." But in your project I thought you could probably use that simple option.

    Most software players do not perform just like the hardware dvd players. Certainly, simpler projects have a better chance of playing on on both type platforms.

     

    If you did not revise this project (re the overrides, etc), I would make sure I had a build to image or folder to make other copies of the current version of the project (in addition to the current disk). Then I'd modify the project to see if I could keep the good performance on a settop player, and improve the performance on the computer playback.
