Mydvd 10 Intro Movie. But How?

Question

I am using Roxio MyDVD10, a bundled version that came with my BluRay burner. I have added abunch of movies and menus and its allgood, but I cannot get the 'Intro Movie' to accept any files. I want a copyright movie to be the first item played when the DVD goes in the player, but the right-click options for the Intro Movie are greyed out and can't be modified, and nothing that I drag onto the Intro Movie makes any difference.

 

Tried starting a new project, and as the first action, dragging a movie onto the Intro Movie icon, but nothing happens at all.

 

Any clues?

Perhaps the version of the software that you have is a stripped down version. Ask the manufacturer of the Blu-ray burner if it is.

 

And, no way will the software accept a copyright movie to be added to anything.

 

Good luck with your software.

Sorry for not being clear, the Copyright movie is a 10 second Copyright notice that I made myself, designed to copyright the rest of the material on the DVD. I wanted it to come up when the disc is first played.

 

But I still can't find out why the Intro Movie option is completely unavailable to me. I have received no answer from the bundling company.

 

Another question, the software seems fantastically slow to use, like 3-5 seconds per click. Making a DVD with lots of movies and button and function tweaks takes hours.

 

Is that normal for this program?

1) If that button is grayed out, chances are that you have a castrated OEM version that does not allow a intro movie. Did you try adding an mpg2 video as the intro movie?

 

Consider adding that copyright as a section on a custom menu. I don't know if your version allows a custom menu but if it does, you can use a video as the background.

 

2) Give us information on your computer via dxdiag.exe. Follow these instructions carefully and attach the text file; not no copy and paste the entire file.

 

Remember that you can get only about ONE hour of best quality video on a single layer DVD. Any more, the quality will be reduced. Trying to cram more than about 1 1/2 hours will screw up you entire project.

Hi Mutley,

 

It's common for OEMs who plan to bundle the software to remove features from it [to save money] but they never seem to have the HELP files re-written [to save money?] so they still mention abilities that the software no longer has.

 

The OEMs are also responsible for all support for their bundled product [so it costs them less] but rarely seem to live up to their responsibilities. :(
