Hey Guys,

I've done this before, but I've been away from the program for a while and for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to make a LAYERED button. I have a PSD file imported in my assets, but when I go to create an active button and look in its "inspector", there is no "Layers" tab there, as there should be. What am I doing wrong?

IS the psd file just the button (with highlight and drop zone or the full image and you are really wanting to make a layered MENU?

Hello,

The PSD file is JUST the button. I have a .mov file as my background, and PSD files of my buttons. Each PSD file has three layers, with the button's normal, selected, and activated states. No matter what I do, I cannot get the PSD file, when I turn it into a button, to give me the option to select the different layers for each state. The "Layers" tab that should be in the button's inspector (according to the manual) just isn't there. I'm using DVDSP4. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Guys,

An update: I'm realizing that you need to have a "Layered Menu" to create a "Layered Button?" The problem with this is that a "Layered Menu" doesn't seem to allow you to use a .mov as the background...am I missing something? This is very frustrating. All I want to do is use layered PSDs for my buttons!

Can't do what you want. Its not part of the DVD spec.
