I'm a complete cyberlink newbie.



I'm trying to create a bluray disc that will play in a bluray player. I have 6 episodes of a programme that I want to put on it and I want to display a menu when the bluray is loaded that shows a thumbnail for all 6 episodes and allows you to select one to play.



It seems I have to choose BDAV to have a set of thumnails but I don't really understand the difference between BDAV and BDMV. It looks as though BDAV has some restrictions?



Also, when I select the 'preview' tab (having imported a couple of files) one of them plays immediately, audio is OK but there is no video - just a bright breen picture. Thumbnails on the 'author' tab are normal.



I'm using powerproducer 6, windows 10, a laptop with built-in bluray burner.

The video files I am importing are a mixture of .mkv and .mp4



Any help to sort out this newbie's confusion would be gratefully recieved!

BDAV has restrictions that you must use BDMV if you want a menu. To fix the bright green screen you need to go into preferences and disable the Use hardware decoding.

Thanks tomasc. As far as I can tell, if I want a menu of all my episodes on one screen to choose from I need to create a play list? If that's correct I can only use BDAV as they are not available in BDMV.



Or am I misunderstanding menus? It looks to me as though a menu can just be for one video but broken into chapters, not several individual programmes?

if you need video thumbnail menu, then select BDMV is the only choice.

Although you still cannot put too many video thumbnails in one menu page.

Thanks sumerj . How do I get more than 1 thumail on screen with BDMV? The only way I can see is to use chapters but I don't want chapters just a thumbnail for each video file.

You have only 1 video file for this disc or you have many video files?

If many video files, just import them.

If only 1 video file, then maybe split it as chapters is the only way to get the thumbnail on menu.
