I'm trying to understand the purpose of the "Title Button" on DVD player remotes. It seems that this button doesn't always work predictably.
Is the Title Button supposed to quickly take you from one Menu Item to the next, or, does it change chapters within a single Menu Item?
Example: A given DVD's main menu may have "Play", "Scenes", "Bonus Material", etc. If I'm watching the movie (via Play), is pressing the Title Button supposed to take me directly to "Scenes" or "Bonus Material"?
If that's not correct, can a DVD be mastered so that is how it DOES work? Using authoring software (such as DVD Studio Pro, which I don't own yet), could I set it up so pressing the Title Button would instantly skip between the various "Titles" at the main menu without actually going back to the main menu?
What I'm trying to do is this... I've got the Screen Play pre-movie slides that are being discussed in the Theater Room Items & Accessories forum. I've created a slideshow with music for presentation before the main feature starts. I've already burned a test DVD with iDVD and it works great. But, for my next version, I want to also include some additional features. I want to have a Dolby Digital intro on the DVD, as well as some TechTalker Home Theater intros. My original plan was to put it all together as a single long "movie" (in iMovie HD) with chapter marks for each different item. I'd then output it to iDVD and burn the DVD. Then, when playing the Screen Play slides for my guests, if the popcorn and sodas are ready early, I could simply press "Chapter Skip" to move instantly to the next item (Dolby Digital Intro) and so on.
What I'd rather do is make separate Main Menu entries for each option. One each for "Screen Play Slides", "DD Intro", "Home Theater Intro", etc. I'd like these each to be different titles and, hopefully, multiple presses of the Title Button will skip me from one to the next quickly.
Is that how the Title Button is supposed to work (or can be made to work)?
Thanks in advance!
