iDVD - How do I make Buttons that link.....

directly to a chapter? I have a short training DVD that I need to add just two buttons on the first menu and link those buttons to the two chapters in my movie file. Is iDVD capable of this? Thanks in advance.

You have to created chapter markers in your movie itself; so in whatever program you made the movie with .. iMovie, FC Express, FCP .. you have to create the chapter markers there, then bring that file into iDVD

When you do that, iDVD automatically creates a Play Movie & Scene Selection option in the opening page of whatever Theme you are using. Click the Scene Selection and it takes you to a new page where your chapter markers show up as you created them

Thanks Victor. I would like to customize this menu even more than the drag and drop method with customized buttons on the main menu screen that play the chapter directly.

Is this possible with iDVD? TIA
