choose your own adventure DVD??

Post by damien666 » Mon Jan 15, 2007 10:54 pm

Hey all,
I know that there are a few out there.. but does anyone have any info on how to program a DVD so that you can have 'forks' in the movie that would be navigated by the remote control (kind of like the 'Choose your own adventure' books - where at a plot point, the story could go on of several ways). I am toying with the idea of doing a DVD like that with several plot twists and choices to make an interactive movie. It has been done before so I know the technology is possible - any advice on how to achieve something like this?? I use Mac DVD studio Pro...
Thanks in advance. damien 666

Sounds intresting idea. That is very simple. If you have a Mac you can do it in iDVD, it's really easy. Just have a segment of the film, then comes up with a menu + question + choices. YOu select the choice and it links you/starts playing if you will the right segment of film. You can then add as many different menus to the different branches of the story as you like.
