Confused on Photoshop Doc for Encore Menu
on Feb 18, 2013 at 9:43:55 pm

I'm working with 1920x1080p HD footage and will be authoring a DVD in Encore. I need to create the Menu Screens in Photoshop from scratch using my own photographs. I'm going to transcode the video to be wide format on the DVD.

I need to know what Image Dimensions within Photoshop should I use to create the DVD Menus so that they will work in Encore. I'm using Photoshop CS5

I tried using the "Film & Video" preset in Photoshop which gives an image of 720x480 and 72ppi ... and the photo looks like crap.. very pixelated around the edges. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for input...

Use a menu from the Encore library, then "edit in Photoshop" and change anything you want to change. Yes it will be 720x480.

PPI is irrelevant in video. Pixel dimensions and pixel aspect ratio are the relevant variables.

Thanks Stan for the reply... So any photo I use will be "stretched" to widescreen... correct? I assume there is no way to minimize this (ie "prep"/edit the image) prior to use in wide format)?
