Chapter 4. iDVD > To automatically create scene menus

To automatically create scene menus

1.
Drag a movie containing chapter markers into an iDVD menu.

iDVD automatically creates two buttons: a “Play Movie” button that plays the movie and a “Scene Selection” button that links to a new submenu. If the menu already contains one or more buttons, iDVD creates a submenu that includes the “Play Movie” and “Scene Selection” buttons.

2.
Double-click the “Scene Selection” button (below-left) to go to its submenu. iDVD automatically created a menu that lists the chapter markers (scenes) as buttons (below-right). iDVD allows a maximum of twelve buttons per menu, and some themes allow less than twelve. If there are more scenes in a movie than a menu allows, a right-facing arrow links to another menu containing more scene selection buttons.

iDVD creates as many submenus as necessary until all chapter markers in a movie have been accommodated, up to the maximum of 99 markers.

The title and text buttons were created automatically, as described above. Double-click the “Scene Selection” button to open a submenu that iDVD also created (shown on the right).The submenu, its title, and the text buttons that link to the movie's chapter markers were all created automatically. The button names were picked up from the chapter marker names that were set in iMovie. Double-click any button to rename it.
