Making A Subtitle Menu Page

Question

I am new to DVDit Pro HD; I have used DSP for years and have many Authors under my belt so most days I am not a moron when it comes to menus and settings.

 

Here is what I am trying to do:

 

1. I have three buttons on a menu

English

French

German

 

2. When one of the buttons is selected I want all movies to play using that subtitle track.

If English all movies will use Subtitle track 1

If French all movies will use Subtitle track 2

If German all movies will use Subtitle track 3

Etc.

 

3. They should use that track setting when playing all movies and playlist until another subtitle button is selected.

 

All I want is to have the button universally turn subtitles on and set the track to use.

 

DSP allows it, How do I make DVDit pro HD do this?

I have tried this way however If I am setting a language for all movies it doesn't give me this option. (the sub stream is grayed out)

 

The next option is to create a Play list for each language which is not optimal.

 

Also, is there away to start within a playlist? (Not on the first movie)

 

Example:

 

I want to have a button that when hit would play a play-list starting on the 4th movie in that list.

 

Play list:

Movie 1

Movie 2

Movie 3

Movie 4 <<|

Movie 5

 

 

Uses:

 

If a presentation is interrupted and you want to start where you left off in a play list.

I'm creating a DVD that contains 13 languages. I want to create a menu that allows the viewer to pick a language; say subtitle stream 4, while staying on the menu. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this.

 

My understanding is that DVDit Pro HD has to send the viewer to a video track to set the Subtitle track. If not the option to change stays greyed out. Is there a way to stay on the menu? I have been able to do this on every other authoring program I have used but not this one.

 

Does anyone have a way to do this?

Thank you for posting my old post; however I have still not received an answer to this question. Because of this I had stop using the program in November and look for other options until now and the same issue has come up.

 

How it does work:

You pick a movie and set the Audio and Subtitle track.

 

How it doesn't work:

You don't pick video track; you pick another menu or want to stay on the same menu and you have no choice to pick an Audio or Subtitle track.

 

I want to be able to set the Audio and Subtitle track from a menu and then continue on that menu until I am ready to play the movies of the DVD. I do not want to have to jump directly to the movie. DSP and Encore both allow for this.

 

Is this possible or not with this software?

I'm having the same problem...

 

I created a project with one movie file and tree different sounds and tree different languages.

By using the buttons on the menu one can change the sound and the subtitles, when I simulate this project it will

work just fine for the sound tracks but it doesn't change the subtitle track !!!

In the button menu i linked this button to "link to sound stream" and also to "link to subtitle stream"...

 

Why will this not work for the subtitles ???

 

Kind regards
