Question about Layered Menus in DVD Studio Pro
on Dec 2, 2005 at 12:11:45 am

Can you have a movie as your background and use photoshop files as overlays? It is not giving me the option to choose a video file as my background.

I am working in DVD Studio Pro 4 in a standard def project. Thanx for your help!!!!

Peace~

Photoshop layers eat up all the DVD laser's time- no room for sound or motion. In other words- they are very creatively limiting and for this reason I do not recommend their use. Studying the manual on how simple highlight layers work and looking at some of your favorite DVDs and you'll realize you can do a lot the other way.

There's a difference between a layered photoshop menu and an overlay. You can use an advanced overlay on a motion menu, but you cannot use any motion at all in a layered menu. The manual is pretty clear about what you can & cannot do with each, & how to use them.
