No hightlights on buttons
on May 9, 2008 at 10:02:55 pm

Hi
I'm using Adobe Encore DVD 1.5 and really need some help.

I'm have a close up image of an eye that I want to use as the DVD menu and I've set the pupil and iris as two different buttons. However, I don't want any highlighting on the actual buttons themselves - as it just looks ugly. Is it possible that when a button is selected (but not chosen) that text will come up next to it, similar to the 'over' command in web design?

Does anyone know how I might achieve this?

I haven't tried to do something exactly like this, but I did create a menu where the highlighting (officially known as a 'subpicture') was not one of those horrible, semi-transparent shapes, but instead a black box that surrounded the button. You could do something similar. For example, make an image that fits in the correct place on your menu (could be the name of the place the button takes you to) and set this as the button's subpicture. It will appear when the button is selected but otherwise be invisible. Search in the help files for subpicture and you should be onto a winner.
