I am having trouble with a project.
First Play Timeline 1 “end action” menu
Menu with buttons to 4 Timelines 2 3 4 & 5
Timeline 2 – 10 chapters (unlinked) “end action” Timeline 3 chapter 1
Timeline 3 – 4 chapters (unlinked)”end action” Menu
Timeline 4 – no chapters “end action” Menu
Timeline 5 – no chapters “end action” Menu
Every thing works ok, they all play from the menu but when Timeline 2 ends it returns to the Menu and does not play Timeline 3.
I have tried setting the “override” same as the “end action”. It makes no difference, when T2 ends it returns to the Menu.
Any ideas what’s going wrong?
Also When the disc plays back T2 (the first link from the Menu) shows on the DVD player display as Title 3
T3 is Title 2
T3 is Title 5
T4 is Title 4
Any idea as to how I get them to show on the display as the correct Title Number?

Thanks for taking the time to reply with a good suggestion Simon. However when I went back to the project to try it I discovered that the “override” for then menu button to Timeline 2 sent it back to the menu there by counteracting the “end action” I’ve changed that and it now performs as I expect it to. I’m still finding my way around Encore.
As for the second part of my question. I’ve discovered in another posting here that the Title order is determined by the order that timelines are created and cannot be subsequently changed. A note for future projects is to plan everything out before starting the project so that I can assemble it in the order I want the DVD player to display the titles.
I hope this may be of help to someone else who reads this.

Indeed…avoid using overrides, unless you understand exactly how they work.
Regarding title order, you can reset it by deleting and creating new timelines, or even by duplicating them in the order you want, then deleting the originals. You can also set the Disc Main Timeline property, which will regardless always be the first VTS on the disc.
