If you made your menus in photoshop, and the pixel aspect ratio was set to SQUARE, when meanwhile your video footage is NOT SQUARE, Encore will compensate by stretching the video to match the menu (or vice versa actually). Reimport your menu with the correct pixel aspect ratio and you'll be fine. One word of warning though. Encore was indeed helping you by treating your photoshop menu the way it was. It distorts the menu so that when viewed on a television screen, it will look proper. Now, if you tell Encore the menu is already in NTSC format, it won't compensate and your menu will look a little stretched. So either you live with it, or redo your menu in photoshop so that it looks the way you want when viewed on a TV screen. There should be more documentation about this, but I haven't found anything in the help menus.
