    Premiere elements 12 - scene menu buttons

    twotoe

      I am trying to create 6 scene menu buttons. Each scene returns to the main menu

      (1st scene is the beginning).When I preview the DVD before rendering all buttons work great.

      After burning the DVD the fourth & fifth buttons do not work. It doesn't mater what I play the DVD on.

      I've reset & re tried doing the menu 5 times but still can't get it to work. (Windows 8)

          Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 8 (assumed 64 bit). Have you updated 12 to the 12.1 Update using an opened project's Help Menu/Update? If not, please do so.

           

          Now to your immediate issue...

           

          Given you have 6 files on the Timeline.

          You have a scene marker at the beginning of each file.

           

          If you want the viewer to be able to select one particular scene on the Scene Selection page and then be returned to

          the main menu at the end of the playback of that scene, you do the following.

           

          You place a stop marker at the end of each of the first 5 scenes. DO NOT place a stop marker at the end of the

          last item on the Timeline, in this case at the end of file 6.

           

          You cannot have two menu markers in the same place at the same time. So, you are going to leave some frames (empty space) between

          the stop marker at the end of a file and the scene marker at the beginning of the next file.

           

          Have you selected a disc menu theme with 6 scene buttons per Scene Selection page? If not, you are going to get spill over to more

          than 1 Scene Selection page. Just what specific disc menu theme are you trying to work with? And, what is the duration of each of the 6 Timeline

          files?

           

          Please review and consider the above and then we will decide what next.

           

          Thank you.
