Please describe your situation in this instance....
a. What is involved - DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc, AVCHD on DVD disc, or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc?
b. Have you placed stop markers on the Timeline at the end of each video except the last one?
c. Are you using a main menu page and scene menu page setup or just a main menu page setup for the project?
Which specific theme are you using although I do not believe the theme itself is the issue?
I am using the Main Menu Page and the Scene Menu Page Setup. When I place the Stop Markers, each scene menu is deleted.
Please remind me
DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc
AVCHD format on DVD disc
Blu-ray disc format on DVD disc
It is going to matter. Stop markers do not function in the playback of Premiere Elements (any version) AVCHD on DVD or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc.
It is only for Premiere Elements DVD-VIDEO on DVD where stop markers work at playback time.
This type of situation forces the AVCHD and Blu-ray people to take their Timeline to a file which can be taken into some 3rd party software for menus which support the stop marker/stop maker like function.
Not clear to me when you wrote
When I place the Stop Markers, each scene menu is deleted.
Just in case note, no more than 1 marker can occupy a given spot on the Timeline...and, if stop marker and scene marker are too close, that can spell trouble.
Please review the above and then let me know if I have targeted what you seek or whether I am still circling the core of the question.
I am creating a DVD-Video on a DVD Disc. Premiere Elements automatically places a Scene Marker in front of all four video clips. I then burn the DVD. When I load the DVD into the player, the Main Menu appears. It gives me two choices: Play Movie and Scene Selection. Play Movie plays all four Scenes without going back to the Main Menu until it plays the last clip. When I select Scene Selection, all four video clips appear individually in the Scene Menu. However, when select a clip to play, it plays all the clips after it. It does not return to the Main Menu.
Thanks for the detailed reply.
Although Premiere Elements is automatically placing a scene marker at the beginning of each of your four clips, are you confirming that you are placing
a stop marker (red marker) at the end of clips 1, 2, 3, but not 4? A stop marker at the end of 4 is not needed and often causes problems during the burn to.
At the end of clip 1 you will have a stop marker.
Right next to that stop marker is the beginning of clip 2 which starts with a scene marker.
Leave a little space (few frames) between the stop marker at the end of clip 1 and the scene marker at the beginning of clip 2
and same continuing on....
I will be watching for your results later in the morning.
Your suggestion of placing the Stop Marker worked. Thank you
Thanks for the follow up with good news "....worked."
As always, best wishes
