Open up all 10 movies in MEP. When you have one movie open, and then go to open a second, you’ll be asked if you want to close the first movie…just say “no” and continue. Do the same for the remaining 8 movies. Voila, you will have 10 movies open in MEP.
If all of the movies have been rendered to .avi files (i.e. the Magix project files no longer exist to be ‘opened’) then you can just create 1 new ‘movie’ and add all 10 avi files to the timeline…with a chapter marker at the start of each avi file.
Then go to make a DVD. If you have 10 movies open you’ll now notice that you havetenicons on your DVD menu (or maybe less, but if all ten don’t show then there will be a second ‘page’ to your DVD menu with the remaining movies). If you go the 10 avi files on one timeline then you’ll have one icon but can add a sub-menu with 10 chapter markers.
When you are happy with your menu design, chose File &save your menu design so that you can come back later and load/modify it. Next time you come into MEP, to work on the project, return to the disk editor and ‘load’ the project…MEP will load your menu, as well as all 10 movies. Make your changes and save again.
If you want to edit a single movie…just open that movie and make your changes…no need to have all 10 movies open if you are just
Burn and enjoy.
