About the closest thing you can do is set the video to return to the main menu at a given point and not proceed until your viewer chooses to start part 2.
Welcome to the forum.
With a full-featured authoring program, you can program in a "pause," but PrE looks at authoring in a linear fashion.
Adobe Encore, will allow one to do this, with a little bit of design work, and I would guess that similar can be done in Sony's DVD Architect, as Encore is no longer available as a stand-alone program, outside of PrPro.
Sorry to hear that thanks for your help
Thank you for your information I will take a look at these. Is there any other program that you would recommend?
I only use Adobe Encore, and love it, but as mentioned, it is no longer available as a stand-alone. The two authoring programs, that get the highest reviews are Sony's DVD Architect (Steve Grisetti has several articles in the Muvipix Learning Series, plus a book on it), and DVD Studio Pro. These are a less expensive program, and then one in the upper-middle range. Many feel that the GUI of the Sony product is more intuitive, but the latter offers more power, just with a greater learning curve.
At the astoundingly upper-end, there is Sonic Scenarist, but will all modules it runs about US$50K, so does not get much notice on these fora.
Roxio and Nero offer some authoring, as does Magix and CyberLink, but I seldom hear them mentioned, and no zero about any.
