There has to be an easy way to do this... I hope.

Thanks for your help.

kind of like, what is the sound of one hand clapping. To make a button not selectable you don't make a button.

hahaha... Sorry! Okay, so I have an animated menu background and I found that if I put the title graphic in the .m2v it is not as sharp as it is when I export it from Photoshop and then import it into DVD Studio as a Custom Shape, so that's what I did.

So now I have a my movie title image as a button and I don't want it to be selectable because it wouldn't take you anywhere.




Sorry for the confusing post!

Um- that's going to be reencoded anyway when the disc is burned and look a lot worse than it does in the simulator in DVDSP. Much better off making it as one piece of video and avoid this button issue altogether.

I thought DVD Studio reencoded your imports before it even let you use it in making a menu? I know that's how it works with imported video that's not mpeg2.

But, if you're right, I guess I'll just add it to the menu background again.

Thanks for your help.

Nope- what you see in simulator is prior to re-encoding.

Figured it out.

In the Advanced tab for the buttons, under Navigation, I made it so that none of the selectable buttons were able to navigate to the title graphic.

Better yet, I just made it a drop zone.
