I apologies if this has already been addressed but I was going over an old profile where the film credits had some roles split with...well...cast dividers.  The title is 'Flashdance' and the credits are as follows...

Role.......actor name
Role.......actor name
(repeat for 11 more roles)

The Flashdancers

Tina Tech....Cynthia Rhodes
Heels..........Durga McBroom
Margo.........Stacey Pickeren
Sunny.........Liz Sagal


The Rocksteady Crew

Normski..............Norman Scott
Mr. Freeze..........Marc Lemberger
Frosty Freeze......Wayne Frost
Prince Ken Swift..Kenneth Gabbert
Crazy Legs..........Richard Colon


Role......actor name
Role......actor name
(repeat to end of credits)

My inclination is to use the new 'Cast Divider' feature to enter the credits exactly as they are listed...is this how everyone else is doing it?
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

Here's the rule: "Do not include artificial actor entries to act as separators between cast lists. (e.g. "--JAPANESE CAST--"), instead use the Divider feature for this."

I think that allows for what you are suggesting. There are a lot of film credits where this will come in quite handy.

You know... I didn't even think of this till you made this thread... I had in my mind for double features on a single sided DVD... but didn't think of this at all. going by what James put... looks like to me you are safe with it too.

I just pressumed that this was one of the intended uses for the functionality, it never occurred to me that it was not until this thread came up!

So of course I definatily agree that this should be allow!

I would like to disagree, just so we could have another 50 page shout-fest,  but I can't.

I have already done this same thing with The Hunt for Red October: 097363-202073 approved and released. After the last "set" of names, I inserted an untitled divider, which makes clear the break back into the normal cast listing.

I don't think we should use dividers where the credits look like this:
            Dancers                      Billy Bob as Joe
                                              Mary Sue as Betty
                                              Skip Net as Walt

because they are not divided. A good example is The Warriors: Ultimate Director's Cut [097360-313840], which is up for voting now, and IMO correctly done by Katatonia.

There was a discussion about this in the German forum recently (maybe it's still going on ).

The pro argument was, that it would help to make things get closer to the actualy film credits.

The con argument was, that you can't know where the "sub-list" ends, if the Cast list continues after that.

To illustrate the con, I use unicus' example, which will look in DVDP like this:
The Rocksteady Crew
Normski..............Norman Scott
Mr. Freeze..........Marc Lemberger
Frosty Freeze......Wayne Frost
Prince Ken Swift..Kenneth Gabbert
Crazy Legs..........Richard Colon
Role......actor name
Role......actor name
(repeat to end of credits)

So, you can't really know if Role - actor name is part of the Rocksteady Crew or not.

How about inserting a blank divider when the first divider should end and then resume with "unlabeled" cast.
