Impressions 2.1 Motion Menu Difficulty
on Aug 14, 2002 at 8:36:10 pm

What I want to do is create a menu with a video background and button images that show up (Not just rectangular boxes) but actual various shaped images, that function as interactive buttons, over the video background.
I do not think you can place true color menu buttons over a video background and get a final result that actually shows the button image on DVD set top play back. They show up ok on playback within impressions, but not in the finished DVD. I am thinking you need hilite buttons. But when you are viewing the interaction of the motion menu, on play back within Impressions, the buttons images disappear except a green halo outlining them. However they show up in the editing mode. I think I am just doing something wrong. Also, I know how to create true color menus in Photoshop 7 and am somwhat familiar with Hilite menus creation. But still i don't feel i've got the hang of figuring out exactly hoe to get nice image buttons over the video background yet.
Can someone guide me through this from a to z please.
