I have a movie that I want to create a DVD out of. The movie has two parts, first part is the event and the second part is the interviews.
I have so far been using pinnacle studio 12 ultimate, and I did make a dvd with three menus, M1 (the main one) pointing to M2 and M3. M2 and M3 have a button to allow the user to choose the whole movie and also has buttons to let the user choose individual scenes.
And the menus work fine, except…
When I play the dvd and in M1 select play wedding, I am redirected to M2, which is correct. In M2, when I select individual sections to play, say Ch3, it plays all the way till the end of Ch3 as it should and then returns to M2 as it should. However, while Ch3 is playing, if I hit the previous / next button, the video skips to Ch2 / Ch4. This isnt the way it should be, it should go back to the beginning of section when I hit the previous button on my remote and skip to the end of Ch2, see the RTM marker and return to M2. And if I were to select Ch1 , if I hit previous while Ch1 is playing, I am sent back to M1(the root menu) and not to M2 which is hat should happen. Same thing happens if I select M3. So it seems like the links work from the menus to the chapters but the prev and next buttons on the remote or the computer player treat the entire DVD chapter sequence as one long sequence without paying attention to the Return to menu markers.
My timeline is like this
M1 M2 Ch1 RTM2 Ch2 RTM2 Ch3 RTM2 Ch4 RTM2 Ch5 Ch6 Ch7 C8 RTM2
M3 Ch1 RTM3 Ch2 RTM3 Ch3 RTM3 Ch4 RTM3 Ch5 Ch6 Ch7 C8 RTM3
There are no previous and next buttons on any menu
The problem in a nutshell is that the menu buttons and all the chapters and the RTMs work fine, but it is still possible to skip between chapters by using the previous and next buttons on VLC player or Media Player. So Im assuming Ill see the same behavior if I burn the movie to disk and play it in a standalone DVD player
Why is this happening and how do I fix it.
And if pinnacle12 studio ultimate isnt the right tool to do what I want, what would be a good software
