Hi all, have a question about DVDs.
I would like to author a DVD which features both clips and pictures.
Thing is that i want some of those being locked until a code is entered, is ther such a feature in any dvd program?
Would be very thankful for an answer!

Yes, it is possible to do what you suggest. We've had posts some years ago that went into a lot of detail on how to do this kind of thing. Maybe someone will post with some instructions. It's a very advanced topic and I don't know how to do it.
Do note that the requirement to enter the code can be bypassed by people who rip the DVD. They will either to be able to directly access the photos or videos after ripping or if they feel inclined to do the work, they could theoretically change the instructions that require the code to be entered and re-author a new version of the DVD that doesn't use any code to display the photos or clips.
Your question is a waste of time and effort, because as jman98 explained it can be bypassed.Believing yourself to be secure only takes one cracker to dispel your belief.
Thanks for the answer!
Im not concerned of ripping as I will distribute it for personal use only, by me and friends.
Any clue what keywords to search for, Ive tried a lot but to no avail...

It must be a novelty thing, having a cool looking keypad up on the screen.

I think its quite a cool idea if I manage to pull it off.
Good luck with that.
