In this tutorial I show how to add a Pre-Play/Auto-Play Video that automatically plays before the Menu appears, after you insert a DVD or Blu-ray disc into your player.

I will be using Sony DVD Architect Studio for the video tutorial.

Adding a pre-play video is very simple indeed. Anyone that has watched a DVD or BluRay Disc will know about the dreaded Intro Videos that play automatically before the Main Menu screen appears. Often there are a series of short videos that play one after the other. After watching this tutorial you will know how to create a DVD that works just like this.

Adding Extra Pre-Play Videos

In the actual video I made, I did not show how to add more than one pre-play video. If this is something you would like to do, then the process is very easy. Just keep adding as many "Intro" or "Pre-Play" videos as you like. Make sure the one you want to have play first has the little "Star" assigned to it. There is an Icon at the top you can press to make this happen.

Then you will have to set the destination for what happens after the first video finishes playing. Simply click on top of the first video in the Root Menu list and then go over to the right hand side of the screen to the properties box for the video. Select the END ACTION tab and then chnage the destination to the next pre-play video. Kepp doing this process over and over again for each pre-play video you add. Just make sure that the very last pre-play video has the destination set to the Main Menu, which is normally "Menu 1".

      Hi Marco
      You need DVD Architect Pro 6 which comes with Sony Vegas Pro 12, to do more complex Menus like the one you are describing. DVD Architect Pro allows you to do keyframing of the Menu to animate buttons - DVD Architect Studio does NOT have this higher function.
