Old habits die hard, so don't get into the habit of targeting a button to a track, and then having to assign the track to end jump back to the menu the button is on in DVD Studio Pro. If you drag your movie to a track, and then target the button to the track you placed the movie into, the track has not received a command for what to do when it is finished playing. You are responsible for assigning the end jump of the track. Usually you set the track to end jump back to the menu the button that started it came from, but if you forget to do so when the track reaches the end it will just stick on the last frame of video, and until you press the menu button nothing will happen.

This can be avoided by simply creating a button and dragging the movie form the Assets over the button and select the "Create Track, Connect to Track" from the pop up menu. This eliminates many possible mistakes, like accidentally targeting the wrong track, forgetting to target any track, or not setting an end jump. Using this technique targets the Track, and sets the end jump. It is certainly the most efficient way to develop menus.
