Motion menu without a button

Encore CS5...I am trying to make a motion menu that will act like a screen saver....I need the motion menu to loop and when the mechanical button on the kiosk is pushed the video plays and then loops back to motion menu which plays until the button is pressed again....

You must create a button if you want the dvd to go to the video when a button is pressed.

You can create an invisible button that fills the entire screen:

1)Open the blank menu in Photoshop
2)Create a layer group with a (+) prefix
3)Create a layer in the group with a (=1) prefix
4)Fill the entire layer with any color
5)Set the opacity of the layer to 1%
6)Create a new layer beneath the (=1) layer
7)Merge the two layers
8)Save and return to Encore

You can then set the button to link to the video, and the motion menu can loop continuously. You will not see any visible button or button highlight.
