I used to make DVD's using other software and always was able to have the DVD's auto start if the remote control does not intervene in say 30 seconds. I couldn't find this option in Encore CS5. Did I miss something, or could someone tell me how to do it with Encore?
I searched the manual and to do not find that option
Oh, that's a shame. All of the other packages I used had this option. I used to default to Play All button and the DVD starts in 20 seconds if the viewer does not choose a different menu option.
How can a sophisticated package like Encore miss this simple but useful feature?
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "have the DVD autostart." I assume you mean to have a particular movie play, or given you later response, for the "play all" program (movie/playlist?) to start.
Select the first play menu. In the properties panel, on the motion tab, deselect "hold forever," set the duration to 20 seconds (or whatever), then on the Basic tab, set the end action to the movie/playlist you want to play.
