I was not aware of a Duration limit, but in the back of my mind, do seem to recall one other user, with a similar issue.
Instead of using the Title Animation Preset, I would do a static Title, and then animate it with the Fixed Effect>Motion>Position and Keyframes, to get your roll. Set your Title's Duration first, by Click+dragging on its Tail, then apply the Keyframes.
Your motion menu is limited by the length of your menu background. What is that set to?
I've having the same problem on the duration of the motion menus - max is 4;29. The motion menus I am referring to are the ones on the scene selection menus - not the main menu. I've tried changing the main menu background duration, but it doesn't seem to effect the scene motion menu buttons. I can decrease the motion menu button duration, but the max duration is 00;00;04;29. Like the post that started this chain, 10 seconds or more would be ideal. In PRE 8, I always had this set at 30. I've upgraded to PRE 10 recently and the motion menus stop at 4;29.
The maximum length of the DVD menu loop is limited by either the shorter of the music or video loop on the menu's background.
So either the video or audio loop on that menu template must be 5 seconds long. (4:29 means 4 seconds and 29 frames, with approx 29 frames in second.)
Thanks for your quick reply. I have double checked the durations, and they seem to be OK, but i still cant set the motion menu button duration to more than 5 seconds. Here is what they are set to:
Duration: 29;29 (I can change this from 00;01 to 29;29 - which is fine for my needs)
Motion Menu Buttons
Duration: 04;29 (i can change this from 00;01 to 04;29 - This is what I'd like to set this to something larger)
Thanks again for all of your help - both here and in the books!
Bumping (I think is the appropriate term). I still cant get past the 5 second limitation on the menus. Since my last post, i've upgraded my machine, reformated (all for other reasons). When I reloaded Premiere and started a new project from scratch - i got the same behavior as described above. I can't seem to get my motion menu buttons to last over "00;00;04;29". I can decrease them - but cant increase past "00;00;04;29".
Any help would be much appreciated...
