    wot am i doin rong? in pin 12.1

    i made a menu of 5 items - all videos.

    it works fine in pinnacle 12.1. 

    saved it as an avi.

    when i run the file the menu does not work.

    does it only work with discs?

    eventually i hope to have a main menu and 5 sub menus.

    how do i do this?

    i am very reluctant to have 25 videos in one file!

    thanks all

    Are you using Windows 10.

    When you create an AVI file, the DVD menus won't work. You need to create a disc.

    Re: wot am i doin rong? in pin 12.1

    do i make the main menu first or do i make the 5 sub menus first?

    does it matter?

    i put a root link in the sub menus that i hope will take it back to the main menu

    thanks all

    Menus can be placed wherever you want in the timeline.

    well the computer kept crashing.

    then we remembered to delete auxillary files

    after deleting 20040 mb it worked.

    is that 20GB?

    thanks

    saby:
    Menus can be placed wherever you want in the timeline.
    You can take advantage of that feature to create an intro video (that plays as soon as the disc is inserted in the player - at the end of the intro video the player goes to the main menu). Put the content of the intro video right at the start of the project, before the first menu.

    My own preference is then to keep the main menu and all the sub-menus together in one place (immediately after any intro video) - IMO just makes the project's layout in Studio tidier.

    Regards,
    Richard
