How To Create A Blu-Ray That Does Not Jump Back To Start On Completion?

Question

Hi, just emailed tech support about this but thought I had better start a thread here too. Bought toast 11 recently and am using it on a Mac Pro 2x2.26 tower with 10.6.5. I also more recently bought and installed the MCE 10x internal blu-ray burner. it works just fine with toast and I successfully created a blu-ray, but the problem i'm having is that the blu-ray discs seem to loop back to the beginning of the movie on completion when I do a test viewing in my sony blu-ray player, and I haven't been able to find an option in Toast alter this setting. I know in DVD studio pro there is an option to specifically get the movie to loop, or jump back to the start, but unless there's some weird setting on my sony player i haven't discovered, I think Toast is the culprit here. tried running the blu-ray in VLC just now and it seems to be doing the same. Has anyone had experience with this problem, or a solution to get it to stop?

 

Thanks! Your quick reply will have my undying gratitude. :)

thanks for your response. i should have mentioned that the disc i am making has no menu. in this case is there a workflow that will make the disc simply stop at the end of the program? coming from authoring dvds in DVD studio pro i guess i just took this as a given that there would be an option for no jump.

Not with Toast. You have to include a menu or the video will continuously play. I suggest choosing the "Auto-play disc at insert" so the menu gets skipped at the beginning and only appears at the end.

I know this post is a year old and maybe you've figured this out already. What I would do is create a black, or any color you like, solid image in photoshop and use that as a menu. So, when your track is done playing the menu it jumps to is just black screen. If you want to replay it, then I think you can click play on your dvd player and it should start again.

 

If you figured out something different, let me know.

Good idea. It essentially can be done with Toast's menu options. Drop in a solid black background. Choose black as the font and choose black as the highlight color. I don't know what will still appear on the screen but not much, if anything.
