Thanks to al the input

 

I have it working as described

 

Thank you

 

Thanks for all the input Ladies and Gentlemen. Maybe I am sorry to have brought this up. My use for this was that when I take a trip, I like to make a DVD for all the members of the party. In this case I just returned from Mexico and toured several cities. I made 16 copies. Some people like to watch the whole thing at once and others only want certain cities at a time. So, it was a nice option and I still find it hard to believe they took it away when it seems it would be so easy to just leave it. It takes effort to remove something, but seems like it would take less effort to just leave it, so maybe there is more than meets the eye. :)

This is bloody crazy.

 

I thought buying the 8 version was a step up from 7

 

Why on earth would u want to return to the menu if u have more than 1 title.

 

I cannot believe this.

 

Can I get money back and keep my fully paid for version 7 and version 7.5

You need to contact Roxio. We are users just like you.

You can still keep 7.5 on your system if you want with 8 installed as well.

But it can be done using the steps listed in an earlier post.

 

It is just that the burn option is not there.

 

I agree I found the old weay easier but a slight adjustment and I can now select to play all or a "city" at a time

Why would you put more than one title on the main menu if all you are going to do is watch them one after the other? It would be just as easy (or easier) to just put both together as one movie and have only one button to play them.

 

But to answer you question - Prehaps someone has a training disc. Button 1 is lesson 1. Button 2 is lesson 2, etc. How about 2 one hour episodes of a TV show? Shall I go on?

 

My install said I had to remove 7.5

It asked if you would like to remove it. You can have both installed. You just can't have both copies of Drag to Disc installed at the same time.

 

As stated in the other thread, the feature you want is still part of EMC 8 Deluxe Suite.

two posts going here i think

 

But the point is that it was in 7 and 7.5 and not now in 8. I did not go delux cos I do not need the dazzle device.

Looking at the specs I thought 8 would have just been a bump up from 7.5.

 

For me buying 8 ws a mistake.

 

Do not get me wrong, I have nver complained about Roxio before.

 

I have purchased ver 5, 6, 7, 7.5 and now 8 this is the first time more is less for me.

 

I make home video of the kids in chapters or titles, now I cannot have 4 titles in a menu that play one after another. i think that is a mistake and i for one am not a happy Roxio user

I have 7.5 and 8 installed and I think what you're referring to is that if you had Drag to Disk installed in 7.5 and wanted it installed in 8, it was telling you it had to uninstall the older version first before installing the newer version as only 1 instace of packet writing software will operate properly on a system.

You may be right

 

so now do I have to uninstall 8 to get back 7.5?

 

thank you

If you've already removed 7.5, you'll need to reinstall it. However, if you want some of 8 installed as well, I would suggest you thoroughly uninstall both, install 7.5 then 8.

i will uninstall everything and go up 7 7.5 and then 8

 

 

I do not wish to sound grumpy, i was just annoyed that after forking out 80 bucks I lose a few features that were in 7 and 7.5

I make home video of the kids in chapters or titles, now I cannot have 4 titles in a menu that play one after another.

 

You're confusing Chapters and Titles. They are not the same thing. So I'll ask you again - WHY have separate buttons on the main menu?

 

In your example, you have 4 different clips that you want to watch as ONE MOVIE. So why are you placing them on the main menu as separate TITLES? Create a single button to 'Play All' and then have a second button to 'Select Scenes'. That's how it's done on commercial DVDs.

Ok I have the Main menu

 

I add 4 diffent mpegs to that main menu.

 

In 7.5 i could select either return to menu or play each title when i go to burn. In 8 it appears to not be there

 

from the main menu they are chapters correct.

 

Where is the option to play them without going back to menu?

Ok let me try and explain what I do

 

I have 4 -6 mpeg clips of 1) Birthday 2) Thanksgiving 3) another Birthday 4) Xmas 5) New year

 

In 7.5 as a project I could add them as chapters to my main title which was June Dec 2005

 

From what i read now,after chapter 1 ends it goes back to the beginning.

 

In 7.5 this was an option when going to burn but did not have to be selected.

 

i am in process of redoing that dvd in version 8. i will see what the outcome is

 

I hope it does the same as 7.5 but th efirst post in this topic seems to be the thing that I cannot do either

Nope it goes back to the menu

 

i will have to use 7.5 to burn then.

 

Why did I buy 8.

 

Good bye Roxio no more money from me I am afraid

 

What happened to the option to continue to the next item on a menu, rather than return to the menu after each item on the menu? In 7.5 that was a burn option, but now is not to be found, at least that I can find.

Nope it goes back to the menu after playing first chapter.

wot a joke !!

 

Roxio cannot be used to make a multi chapter dvd that plays chapters one after another in Version 8

 

i will have to use 7.5 to burn then.

You are assuming that Sonic/Roxio used the old code from V7. I don't think they did.

 

You can STILL do exactly what you want by following my suggestion. Have a 'Play' button that plays the entire Trip to Mexico. Then have a second button that you 'edit chapters' and place a chapter mark at the beginning for each city visited. When the viewer selects the second button, they will get a submenu where they can then select any of the cities.

 

This is exactly how they do it on a commercial DVD like Harry Potter. Press PLAY to watch the entire movie Or press SCENES to skip to your favorite spot.

I concur. I now see the light. My old way was working for me but not as professional as your way.

 

 

I made a DVD using your instructions and it works fine and I like the play movie button or select chapter.

 

Thanks again.

No, Roxio has always called those TITLES - even in version 7.

 

I know exactly what you want and what you are doing. It can't be done in any version of EMC8 except the Deluxe version. Why Sonic/Roxio decided to do that, I don't know. The majority of posters here aren't asking that question, but rather how to make their DVDs more like a commercial disc with a 'Play All' and 'Scenes' buttons. Any version of EMC8 can do that.

I understand WHAT you want. I don't understand WHY you want it. Think about what you are saying. You want to watch the birthday, thanksgiving, birthday 2 and Xmas all in sequence. Then what purpose do the buttons serve if you're never going to press them?

 

If at some time you want to watch one of them separately, you can still do that with the 'Play All' and 'Scenes' buttons on the Main Menu. Just choose the 'scenes' and then the chapter you want to watch. This way makes your DVD look much more professional. This is something that Version 7 CAN NOT do without adding the same file twice.

Glad you got it working. Sometimes it can be difficult to get a point across on the forum. Once I learned that little copy/paste trick, it even seems to make the whole process of creating the menu faster for me. Working on an old VHS tape transfer for a cousin today.

As it stands they wont play unless I select them after they go back to the menu which is what I dont want them to do after playing 80 bucks to upgrade to version 8

 

 

My point is though, they are seperate clips I do not want a long 1 hr movie of everything. It makes it hard to find the birthday clip in amongst the movie. i want to seperate the clips but allow the dvd to play all the way through each chapter. if someone sees the dvd and does not like chapter 2 they can skip it but as it stands in 8 when chapter 1 finishes it goes back to the menu until u elect another chapter.

 

I do not see a "Play All" on th menu of the dvd that is playing on my tv from Easy CD 8. I need to play around with burning in 8 maybe,, before I shoot myself more in the foot

 

Also any movies copied from tv and burnt as mpegs cannot be played if the mpeg is more than 2 hrs. I have to cut the mpeg into 2 clips and burn as "play all clips" and not as return to menu after chapter 1

 

I can burn in 7.5 as i just reinstalled it.

 

I still hang onto my point that this is a backward step for dvd burning IF and I say if you want to have chapters of events in the family life. I have to make movies for family back in UK. To go back to menu after chapter 1 seems odd.
