Ok this is per the clients request. I have 6 buttons on the main menu. In the center of the menu is a box to display 30 second preview clips. I need to make it so each button that is highlighted shows a different preview video in the box. How would I accomplish that?

Thanks in advance!

Tell your client it cannot be done.

The only possibility to "fake" the desired behavior of your menu is to make motion menu with videos included in each button, and "cover" them in normal state by opaque overlay. So you will have only one active (visible) button on-screen at a time. Will work a expected only on stand-alone DVD players. Computer playback would be quite unpredictable.

The way I've done something like this in the past as examples of how it could be done is to

1. have duplicate menus each with the corresponding videos for each buttons
2. auto activate a button every time you move to a new button

As the button is activated upon selection it goes to the duplicate menu now playing the corresponding video. While the effect visually works, it is slow and clunky and of course never recommended. I use it as an example for my students of what not to do.
