Chapter 4. iDVD > Duration setting

Duration setting

The “Duration” slider, shown below, sets how long a motion menu plays before it returns to the beginning and repeats, a process called looping. The maximum loop duration allowed is 15 minutes (if your media is that long). Most DVD designers create motion loops that are much shorter than that, usually a maximum of 30 seconds in duration. Longer loops are unnecessary because most people will make a selection and leave the current menu before a 30-second loop starts repeating. If you hope to get a lot of content into your DVD project, be aware that longer loops take up a lot of storage space on the final DVD.
