How can I check and modify the Order of Titles for Playback on my DVD Disc Menu?

Nero Video authoring module has three access points that help you checking the playback order of your titles.

1. The content screen allows you to import and sort the order of video titles on your disc. Via drag & drop or context menu, you can modify the playback order.


2. Within the menu selection screen via “Customize” and “Advanced Editing”, please check the order and linkage in “Poperties: Button” and the dropdown menu under “Link to”.


3. Finally, the preview window allows you to verify navigation and playback of titles in your disc menu, just like they will be played back on the DVD Player in your living room. If you find any mismatches here, please go back for modifications under #1 or #2.

Can I customize Video Disc Menus in Nero Video?

Yes. Find some examples explained below.

Click on ‘Import files’ to select clips via ‘Windows Explorer’. ‘Nero Video’ ‘Disc Content Window’ will list your clips under the name given in the original file.

Customize DVDs_EN_1 00035

As these names will be used in your disc menu let’s simply polish the names by re-naming them.  Right click on an asset to re-name and type a new name into the window. You can also do that in the disc authoring customization later on.

Click next and you will see that the default menu already has taken over the name. Now select a new menu template. You have the option between three different styles: ‘Standard 2D’, ‘Animated 2D’, and ‘Smart 3D’. Select ‘Gift Box’ from the Smart 3D templates.

Customize DVDs_EN_2 00035

You can see that the asset start buttons show figures that you want to get rid of. Click on the ‘Customize’ tab and select a title. In order to get rid of the figures within the title modify the ‘Appearance’ within the ‘Button Properties’. Just click on ‘text only’ in the drop down box for ‘text numbering’. Do this for all your assets. As you also want further menu pages to be free of numbering click on the ‘disc project’ arrow below and de-select ‘Restart numbering on each menu page’.

Now you want to adapt the ‘Gift Box’ template to a special occasion. Click on the drop down box under ‘theme’ within the template settings tab.

Customize DVDs_EN_3 00035

Apart from the default template ‘white’ you can select ‘Kids’,  ‘Valentine’, or ‘Christmas’. Let’s use the ‘Kids’ template here, and finally let’s exchange the menu name to ‘Kid’s Vacation’.

Customize DVDs_EN_00035

Now click on ‘next’ to see your animated menu template.

Via the menu navigation functions you can check your project before burning to disc.
