If you don't understand this concept, you may have had things happen that you couldn't explain. 

This should help with…

Hi Paul

re the menu loop. we always edit the start back onto the end of the motion menu and generally they all start graphically not doing much. I then add a chapter 2 marker in DSA at the end and give that an action to jump back to chapter 1

Cheers

Tony
