Default What TMPGenc Track and Menu option to display clips that loop ?

Hi, TMPGencAuthoringWorks 4.0.2.14
I have 6 video clips and I wish to see a menu appear showing all 6 clips thumbnails when dvd inserted into dvd player and autoruns.
User navigates to e.g. clip 3 and hits ok, clip plays and loops when it reaches end, so it plays again and again, until user chooses menu option from dvd handset, then user can choose another clip from the 6 clips showing.

Alternatively if thats not possible, clip plays then when it reaches end the 6 clip menu re-appears and user chooses that clip again to replay it.

What should the source window have in it, 6 tracks each with 1 clip, or one track with 6 clips ?
What should the menu choices be when compiling menu. I usually opt for the user chooses thumbnails and frame style etc route !

You should start with 6 tracks (each track represents a continuously video stream, so if you have multiple clips under just 1 track, TAW will join these clips up to form one continuous video).

When creating the menu, if you choose to use a template, after selecting the template (you probably want one with at least 6 thumbnails per page), for the "menu composition" option, choose the "top menu only". For the next screen in the menu creation wizard, the "DVD video playback settings" page, choose "display top menu" for disc insertion option, and "display the top menu" for the "track playback end action" option. This will, upon inserting the disc, present the 6 track playback thumbnails, and once a track finishes, it will return to this menu.

As for looping each track, I don't think this is actually possible with TAW. You can loop all tracks (so after track 6 is played, it goes back to track 1 and loops indefinitely), but I don't think you can loop a specific track.

Hi and thanks for the reply.

I shall follow those steps carefully.

Basically then user inserts disc, 6 thumbnails show, click track 3, it plays, then when it reaches end of track 3, the 6 thumbnails apear again, click 3 again to repeat the track.

I do find the way TAW gives the menu options confusing, maybe someone has done a...you want this, so choose this...user guide to TAW, I could do with one. I mess around with DVD_RW discs and various combinations and it takes ages, sometimes as this, I get nowhere.

Cheers

That's what it should do, yes. You can use the preview feature to test out the menu/playback before committing to disc. which is what I usually do to get a rough idea of what the menus will look like. Then simply commit to the HDD (don't burn straight to disc), and then use VLC or Media Player Classic to play the created VIDEO_TS folder for a more comprehensive test, before burning the folder to disc using ImgBurn or similar software.
