I create my project with an intro to be read first (the first chapter) and go to Main Menu.
In Flow chart OK
In PreView OK
If I build it using Flash It works like a charme
If I build it in DVD image The To Be Read First is not read. The DVD goes directly to Main Menu ...
Encore CS6, windows 8
I don't see a problem. Sometimes, when users set the end action of the main menu to itself it has produced results similar to yours. Normally the end action of a menu is set to "stop," since it runs forever and does not reach its end action. You do have end actions on your submenus, and they appear to go back to the main menu. You may intend this. But I don't see a button on the submenus that goes back to the main menu.
Just as a test, I would change the submenus to "stop."
The more likely problem is that your intro appears to be chapter one of your main timeline. You could try adding a single asset/single asset timeline and use that for the intro. See if that removes the problem.
I tried :
Created a Menu with the intro in video. KO
Created Single asset timeline. KO
Created chapter in the Main Project. KO
Created a Menu with the intro in video. OK
Created Single asset timeline. OK
Created chapter in the Main Project. OK
Not resolved ...
I'm thinking Cobalt78 wants part of his video, i.e., Chapter 1 to be the intro before his main menu is shown. It might be done if he links an end action chapter mark at the end of his intro to the main menu. It might be better if he makes the intro as a separate video file, defines it as first play, linking to the main menu. At least that is how I interpreted what he was trying to do.
Yes, I think that is what he wants. And he appears to have that (works in preview; works in flahs), but occassionally the burned DVD behaves differently. I usually suspect a corrupt project, and trashing cache files etc helps. But that also leads, often enough, to a do over.
His experiments reported in post 6 left me wondering what was working and what not.
Created a Menu with the intro in video:
I created a blank menu and in Motion Video added the intro converted in avi file in after effect.
I -To To Be Read First- this menu end to the next menu.
not work in DVD format
Created Single asset timeline with the after effect project using the dynamic link -To To Be Read First-. Not work
Created chapter in the Main Project with the after efect project using the dynamic link. KO
The last flowchart shows the timeline for the intro as Ecole2012_20..., same as in the earlier intro. My suggestion was for adding an asset (I want something that Encore has not had in the project so far) and for that to be the only thing on the timeline used for the intro (so a new timeline with a name that has not been used in this project).
