I have an animated background that I want to have play for a few seconds before we see the buttons come up, is there a way to delay or fade up a button?
thanks

Yes, but not from within Encore.

Instead, you create your menu video background in After Effects or Premiere Pro, import and apply it to your menu, and then set the menu Loop Point timecode to when the buttons appear in your video background.

are the buttons built within the AE or PP2 video? If so how does Encore know its a button? I am also a little confused over the loop point. I have created a motion background and just let it loop the length of the clip. What benefit would I get from the loop point?
thanks again

The button graphical elements are made in Photoshop (you can also use pre-existing Encore menus), and then the layers are animated in AE or PPro. In Encore, you create subpicture-only buttons that overlay the menu with video background.

Maybe so. But to get your animation back into Encore from either After Effects or Premiere you have to export as AVI and that way you loose the layer recognition. So finally, you can't animate the buttons. Am I right or am I wrong?

Regards.

You're wrong. See my other reply.

Do you have more specifics on how to do this? I am having this issue now with Encore/After Effects CS3. I know I'm on the cusp of a breakthrough, but it's eluding me...
