DVD intro sequences

 It really should be possible to watch a DVD without getting seasick from the dratted intro sequence whirling and whizzing around a poorly-cgi'd representation of the set, in exactly the way that the camera never actually does once the DVD proper is running. 

So far as I can see, DVD intro sequences need to do a MAXIMUM of three things 
1) play the DVD from the start
2) offer a menu of starting points that are not the start
3) MAYBE allow you to change language/subtitles. 

Stupid CGI whirling that gets in the way, slows things down and makes the viewer feel like crap : NOT REQUIRED.
