Strange color problem in encore 2.0

Hi

I've encountered a strange color problem. In my menu there are four buttons: blue, purple, green and orange. When I want to highlight the orange and the green button they become blue.
Now I've checked the colors in Encore 2.0 and in Photoshop. In both programs the colors are how they should be. But in preview mode in encore 2.0 they both become blue. That happens also when i expotrt the menu to a video_ts folder.
Can anyone help me?

It sounds like the primary (=1) highlight color for your menu is blue. You can have up to three highlight colors, or you can just not highlight the buttons at all. (I wouldn't recommend going without highlights. At the very least you should have something light up to tell the user what button they're on, such as a dot next to the buttons or a ring around them.)

Best way to fix this is to edit the menu in Photoshop and reassign the highlight layers for the buttons to be the different colors- (=1), (=2), and (=3). You can either edit the colors of those layers in Photoshop, or you can reassign the colors once you have the menu back in Encore.

Thanks for the help. But this sucks, only three diffrent highlights. Do you know if there's a way to make four diffrent highlights?

It's a limitation of the DVD specification.

However, you can have three colors per group (and two groups per menu), so really, you can do six colors.
