Ain't gonna happen. Common mistake is assuming Flash/Web style design transfers to DVD. Because nothing animated can be cached into memory with DVDs, rollovers are just about impossible. Take away the rollovers and read into the manual regarding the simple highlight method and you can come up with the DVD design equivalent.

but one last thing, i have imported the movie which was done in flash into DVDSP and i have putted it as a background in my menu. so cant i make my buttons in photoshop and bring them in DVDSP with an overlay and do the simple highlight method that DVDSP has.

thanks

Sure you can. In motion menus the BG video is one piece and all the buttons become a single layer. Just peek into the manual more and do the tutorial if you need to. Every Hollywood DVD is done this way, though not often with Flash as an animation source for the BG video.
