    Premiere DVD music length

      Is there any way to have the menu music or video play longer than 20 seconds?? It's really annoying, what software can I do this???

          Unfortunately, no.

          In some DVD authoring programs, you can, up to a point. Encore allows 40 sec., and some cell-editing programs do have work-arounds. Most of these are very expensive, with the cheapest being DVD Studio Pro at ~ US$250.00. Sonic Scenarist allows more, but unless you are very "flush," I'd not even think about it.

          The best that I have done is to choose music that fades up fades down within the time frame, and has enough repetition, so that the user does not notice this. I've picked a dozen such pieces (SmartSound) and edited them to work like the music is continuous, when it is looping.

            The maximum is 30 seconds. If it's only 20 seconds then there is a SWF or other animation associated with the menu that lasts only 20 seconds.
