Problem with Picture show with DVD Architect 5.2

I have had an enquiry from a potential customer who wants to know if I can assemble and burn a Blu-ray disc that has about 80 pictures on it. The problem is that they want each picture to come on screen and just sit there until they hit the next chapter button to go to the next(or last) picture. It is going to used in a lecture so they want the ability for the picture to just sit there until they want to advance it. I can use chapter markers to advance each clip.

Had a look at putting together a picture Compilation but it seems to want to render out each clip for a selected duration. Is there anyway that each picture can just appear on screen without having been pre rendered out as a video file?

Since there's only 80 pictures, just create 80 menus - each with a single invisible link to the next menu. Then they can just press play and it will go to the next menu. I believe standard DVDs have a 99 menu limit? Not sure about BluRay discs.

Thanks Edward. That's a good workaround. The only problem could be that I think he mentioned that sometimes they may want to go backwards through the pictures and I'm guessing that wouldn't be possible with this method?

That would certainly make it more difficult unless you had visible menu options (one for forward, one for back). Sounds like he really wants to use a computer and PowerPoint instead of a DVD player.

Re: Problem with Picture show with DVD Architect 5.2

I'm not sure if it is specific to my players but if I add menu pages, remove all links, and make the background media a picture, when I hit the next button on my remote it goes to the next picture, and when I hit the previous button it goes back to the previous picture.

I believe for BR discs you can have up to 999 menu pages.
