linked the end of each chapter to the beginning of the next one.
Why are you doing that? The typical method is no such end actions, the timeline plays through, and another method is used to play individual chapters, if you need them to play alone and return to a menu. But if you want them to play on to the next chapter, just do nothing.
The menu is a popup or regular menu? I understand the first play is your timeline.
FYI, I don't think relevant here, but CS6 added bluray chapter playlist.
Thanks for the response Stan. I guess, I linked the end of each chapter to the beginning of the next one to leave no stone unturned. I will remove and see if that makes a difference.
My menu is a ragular menu with buttons created in Photoshop. I linked the buttons to beginning of each chapter in Encore. The actual project have over 2 hours of video but I rendered a small portion to test it out first.
I hope I don't have to upgrade to CS6.
As long as you want the rest of the chapters to play after you select one with a chapter button, you'll be fine. You do not want all the chapter end actions. One end action for the end of the timeline.
That worked. Thanks Stan!
You are welcome!
