    Does FCE HD have the ability to provide clickable onscreen menu options, i.e. the capability to set icons on screen which one can click on via one's DVD remote control so that you can access other parts of the DVD?

    Or is this more the province of DVD authoring?

    Thanks,

    Not do-able in FCE or FCP. But it is doable as a menu in most DVD authoring programs.

    It is possible to create chapter markers or points in Final Cut Express and then create a DVD using iDVD. Here you can use icons and scene selections and what not.

    Texas04,
    Thanks for this but I don't think that this is what I was talking about - if I understand what you're saying about iDVD's capabilities. In addition to having a main menu for the DVD, with markers and chapters that one can go to, I want to have onscreen icons that appear on screen during the actual footage, so that one can then jump to them and then back to the scene, if required.

    Is that what you mean?/

    Try a Keynote Presentation and making a "interactive slideshow". This may be what you are looking for. However it would have to be on a .mov file instead of a DVD.. I am not sure if it will work on a DVD...

    That's purely DVD authoring.
