I need to make high quality DVD's. I'm using DVD Studio Pro and whenever I create a menu, no matter how high the resolution, it always turns out pixelated. Any idea how I can make a DVD menu that is high quality? Is there a better software for this?
I was given a menu created in Photoshop that consists of 11 layers (background + a Normal and Selected layer for each of the 5 buttons). Misc graphics were merged with the Background, and the button layers each rasterized individually. They want it to show up full screen on a 16:9 monitor and letterboxed on a 4x3 monitor. It was created at 1920x1080 at 150 dpi and set to Square Pixels.
No one is happy with the quality. The type is not crisp/clear and shows bad jagged edges.
I can probably provide more info if you ask me, but can't think of what else to say here.

You have to resize the images in Photoshop, all DVDs are 720x480 non-square pixel. To convert you need to make it 853x720 and down sample the resolution to 72 p/inch. The image will look correct at this point.
Then unselect "Constrain Proportions" and make the image 720x480 (For NTSC) resolution still at 72.
