Hopefully someone can help me. I'm trying to create a Menu in Apple Motion whereby I have a picture of a goal net, and four soccer balls. These balls will have text beneath them stating Play Movie, Extra Footage, Team Profile and Training. Ideally, I would like to do the following. When I select lets say for example, 'Play Movie' Button, I want the ball above to shoot off into the net, then the sequence for that Button commences. Once I know how to do one, then I'll follow onto the remaining three buttons. I am authoring the DVD in DVD Studio Pro.
It's pretty simple- you make an animation for each ball shooting off and then set up the main menu to jump to the appropriate animation once the selection is made.
So- you have the main version of the menu with the balls sitting still that loops. Then 4 seperate tracks- one for each ball movement and you jump to the appropriate one when the selection is made. In effect it's a jump cut edit but since the balls are in the same spot in the moving menu no one will notice this.
