I wanted to animate the buttons
what I did:
in encore I imported a psd file with a background layer and 4 buttons
in after effects I animated the buttons so that they wiggle along
then back in encore (dynamic link) the buttons are wiggeling but they did nothing but wiggeling. the whole stuff from after effects was brought in as background
did I something wrong ?
what could I do to animate the buttons so that they wiggle and that they are real buttons ?
thanks for help

The button highlight cannot wiggle. So you can have the text for the buttons wiggle, because that is rendered into the background. The highlight is static, so you might want the highlight to be a little box, arrow, or underline. Those can be made in Photoshop. If you don't know how to make a custom button (using the (=1) layer prefix, and (+) group prefix), then you will want to read the encore help documents.
