I'm trying to create a menu that the text for the buttons to the right, and a large picture to the left that changes as you roll over the different buttons, but the picture is showing up as a solid teal color block after I convert the object to a button. Here is a j-peg of what the initial screen looks like:

And what I want the rollover for the button to look like:

Any recomendations?

Hi Kenny,

I am pretty sure that is all you can get out of the "roll-over" type function from Encore, at present. The best you'll be able to do is change the alpha of the tint you want.

I thought that was sort of limiting, myself.

You can do this using multiple menus, using the button auto-activate feature.

Could you please elaborate a little more on how to go about doing this?

Easy...in your example, create two menus, each having the image you want displayed. Then on the original menu, link each button to the correct menu. Then set each button on the original menu to auto-activate.

The result will be when the viewer selects a button, it will automatically go to the next menu.

The only drawback is that on a software DVD player, the user will have to click the button to go to the next menu - but this is the common drawback to all workarounds limitations of menus in DVD-Video.
