Scene Selection on DVD studio pro

ok, Ive created many of the menus for a dvd im working on. I have a background ready...it has all the different scenes labeled and Ive created buttons for them all. Ive also placed markers at all the points on the movie that I want scenes.

The question is how do I make it so that I can click on a button on my scene selection menu and have it play that particular marked area and then return to that same menu?

Thanks for any help I can get. Ive tried using the tutorial instructions and Im a bit confused.

I assume you have the first half working - clicking on the button takes you to the right chapter. What you don't have working is the return to the menu screen once that chapter has been played.

I have never done this before, but I would look into using the programmable bits in the player. You could set a flag when the user has used the chapter menu to start play at a chapter marker. Then (somehow) at the end of the chapter check for the flag being true and if so return to the chapter menu.

Again, not ever having done this, it may be necessary to break each chapter out as its own track and use that flag to decide what to do at the end of each chapter/track - continue to the next one track or return to the menu.

No at this point I dont have either. I have a button, I have also marked where I want the chapters to be, thats as far as I have reached. I do not know how to get each button to start playing at a particular marker.
Thanks for your help.

Do you want it to continue to play the entire remaining track from the chapter Marker or return to the menu after that chapter. If you want it to only play the chapter and jump back to the menu then you need to create "Stories" in DVDSP

I want to be able to use individual buttons to play only between one marker to the next.

Ok, then you need to use the DVDSP "stories" feature to do that. Its a bit tricky but I have done it a couple of times so its not too bad. Check out your DVDSP manual then open DVDSP up & do some clicking!
