I created a custom menu in PS where I inverted the text layer that
was created by the artist. So the inverted layer is the highlight of the menu and I chose something else for the select layer. It all works perfectly in DVDSP but I need to add music. I know there is no music allowed in a layered menu. But I was wondering if there was another way around it or how I can turn my Layered Menu from photoshop into a simple menu and still have what I have for select and highlight options on the buttons. Your help is greatly appreciated!!!
If your still menu is done using a still menu plus a standard black-on-white menu overlay, then DVDSP will allow you to add audio to the menu. It sounds as though you are almost there by making a layer with inverted text. Export one .tif file with the menu background and one .tif file with the menu text as black text on a white background from Photoshop, then import these as a menu and an overlay in DVDSP. You will then be able to add an audio track to the menu.
See the DVDSP help if you need instructions on creating menu overlays.
