How To Connect An Iso Video With A Menu?


The Persistent
 Share

Question

How to get over this obstacle is not clear.

First, in Microsoft PowerPoint, I created a project, and then converted it to a video in WMV format.

Then, in Roxio, I converted the video from WMV format to ISO format, but when I played it in a DVD player, it kept looping, because it did not have a Menu.

Then, in Roxio MyDVD, I created a custom Menu.

Then, in Microsoft PowerPoint, I created a project (to use in Roxio as an Intro Movie), and then converted it to a video in WMV format.

Then, in Roxio, I converted the video from WMV format to ISO format.

Then, in Roxio, using MyDVD, I created a new production, and put that video into it as an Intro Movie.

 

At this point, I have not been able to do three things:

1. Put the custom style menu into the production;

2. Add the movie to the menu; and

3. See any of the previously recorded ISO videos in MyDVD.

 

To an experienced user, it must be clear that I am doing one or two (or more) things wrong, but I have not been able to figure out what they are. I have watched the Learning section videos and have read a lot in the Help contents.

 

What shall I do next?

PUNT !

 

An ISO file is an image of what goes on a disc. It cannot be edited. You cannot add to it,

 

You can take the ISO and rip it back to files and then use those files to make a new project.

 

Can you take the PowerPoint presentation and encode it to a mpg2 file? That works best for an introductory video. Just put in the wmv files for the other videos; the program will encode those to mpg2 as needed. Why are you making a custorm menu?

Great! Thank you. Very helpful. Helps me understand Roxio more.

 

No real need for a custom menu. I'll use the regular style.

 

I did successfully add my own music to the Menu.

I input a PowerPoint slide to be the Intro Video. That works well.

I input a PowerPoint show to be the new movie. That works well, too.

 

However, now when I open the Project, the Intro Video does not start automatically...I have to click the "Ok" button to start it, and then it keeps looping,

and,

the Added Movie does not start automatically...I have to click the "Play" button.

 

How do I have the Menu show and then the Intro Video automatically start...then not loop...but go directly to the Added Movie and have it start automatically?

 

What a learning curve! None of this seems to be intuitive. I appreciate your help!

The sequence is as follows:

 

The Intro movie always plays first (and before the menu appears)

 

After the Intro is finished, the main menu appears and you click "Play" to start the main movie. Since you have a menu, the movie does not play automatically.

The Intro movie will always play before the menu and it will play only once.

 

What do you mean by "when I open the Project, the Intro Video does not start automatically"? What Ok button are you talking about? You will have to be specific when you talk about certain actions. We cannot look over your shoulder and see what you are doing and where.
