Default First play video on Menu

I'm wondering when using Burn To Disc from the timeline in Edius 6.08 if it's possible to have a short video play automatically before the main menu comes up ...?
When I used Ulead DVD Workshop they had this function called "First Play" video which did this when the DVD was inserted into a player.

yes, this is possible

move the required first play sequence to no1 position

Thanks for your quick reply Anton ...as usual.
I'll do as you suggested when I get to the end of this project. Just a question though ... Will that first play video show up on the menu ...? I'd prefer if it didn't.

yes it will show up, but if you drag these items (thumbnail and textbox) outside the edge of the menu, they won't be seen

They won't be seen but can still be access by the DVD remote control. So when please press up/down/left/right at some point it will look like nothing happens and then if they happen to press select at that point it will play your clip.

Another way to make it disappear is to change it to text and enter a space.

the problem with that is that the highlight will still work

basically, EDIUS Disk Burner is limited in all these things, I don't use it
