Is it possible to make a DVD autorun in Adobe encore 1.0? ..if so how?
I’m producing a slideshow of images which has to run on a standard DVD player. I outputted my MPEG2-DVD file from After Effects and brought this into encore. I then created a blank menu screen in the project window and dragged my MPEG file (.m2v) onto the menu screen and this displayed as a small icon. After burning the DVD and playing it in my DVD player it starts with the same small icon on screen. I have to then press ‘play’ to actually start the slide show.
What I want to happen is to insert the DVD and it just to start playing and then continue on a loop.
Make a new project. Then, create a new timeline. Next import your .m2v file. Drag this file into the newly created timeline. Make sure “First Play” is set to the first chapter point in this timeline. Next, set the “End Action” of this timeline to the first chapter point of the timeline.
