View Full Version : Creatting Looped DVD in a Mac
6th April 2003, 12:35 AM
Ok, I want to burn a DVD with my visuals for a client who has a PC.
Now, I want that DVD to play in a endless loop by it self, how do I do that? I have every single authoring software for Mac. I know that can be done under PC.

Hm, I think that depends on the PLAYER. If the DVD Player allows for loops, thean there should be no problem @ all...

export your file as a MPEG2-file
import it in DVD authouring studio Pro
import footage, track, properties, when fininshed jump to `itself`
burn DVD with superdrive
real easy , works on -almost- every dvd player

in DVD Studio Pro, import your m2v then add a track and drop the m2v file onto the track.
Click outside of the track file to select the general disc. Under the Property Inspector select "your track" as the Startup Action.
Click on your track and in the Property Inspector choose "your track" under Jump When Finished.
No menu and DVD will loop forever.

I know I am reviving an old thread but in my search for more or less seamless looping, I also came across this thread...
Holly: the method you described leaves NO gap, means seamless?

no end action loops are not seemless - seemless looping is impossible on dvd - only the dvj-x1 has seemless loop and it does it by having a massive hardware buffer.

I run into the exact same problem, even with those dvd players that have the A-B Loop option, you can see how it freezes for a few seconds, before it starts again.
So on Dvd Studio pro3, open the timeline window (I think thats the name) and just copy paste the loop several times, in the video track, that way you will have a few loops before it "skips".
I know is not perfect but it worked for me.
hope it helps!

Tom, how far can the Pioneer do this? What I mean is how long a loop will it allow you to create? This is probably the one function that sells me this kit - especially for studio work.

I'm going to assume the DVJ is like the CDJ.... The buffer only needs to be long enough to cover the time it takes for the laser to track back to the beginning. In other words, you can loop the whole disc without storing the whole disc to the buffer. That's how it was for the cdj.

yeah i've not been able to find any practical limmit of the dvj's looping ability (i think it is just about possible to rewind out of the buffer with loop off if you really really hammer it but it is well beyond what anyone whould do as part of a performance)
the hot cues are amzing - you can set a cue point on any track and jump to it instantly even if you are playing a totaly different track.
oh and the emergancy loop is mental - at any point you can push one button to loop the last bar that it played!

Well Idon't suppose they will be perfect or suitable for everyone, but for me, the prospect of turning up to gigs with just a wallet full of DVDs is now a reality - I hope its just a matter of time before "theChill" buy a few of these beauts - bring it on!
