hi there...

posting here for the first time...
did a search but didn't find a good answer...

i'm making a dvd, with layered menu's build in Photoshop
To go from one menu to the other someone made animations going
from last frame menu 1 to first frame menu 2

But everything build in DVDSP, I get a color shift (much lighter,)
in the psd-files... Got a real problem here cause now the color animations don't match
the colors in the PSD' files...

Does anyone can explain me why the psd's are in another color when imported in DVDSP
and what i can do to prevent such a shifting of color

thanx a lot

greetings maurik de ridder

The video color of your animation transitions isn't exactly the same (I'm sure the bigger brains here could tell you exactly why with all the jargon) so the easiest workaround I've found is this- take a screen grab of the animated transition at it's rest point from DVDSP. Pop that still into your PSD and match up the position. Bring the PSD into DVDSP again with the modified background image. The color should keep. I've done this a number of time for layered menus and even those with basic text and it works, it's just annoying and time intensive.

tnx Nicole for the answer...

but the animator did this... he took screengrab from the animation, and build the PDS- files from
there... In PS the color matches the animation... Only when imported into DVDSP there is a huge color
shift...

anyone else with some suggestions...

Just to ask the dumb question- it's in RGB color and not CMYK?

Hey Maurik,

I had the same problem and i I found out the answer:)

Dvdsp changes something (dont ask me what) on your colorprofile from the psd files. So if you say in Photoshop not to colormanage your psd files, than import them in dvdsp the color shifting problem is solved. Dvdsp does this thing only on psd files if you save your files as tiff or jpeg or whatever and even if you put these files in a layered menu there will be no color changing. I gues this is just some kind of bug...

good luck!
