DVD Authoring Program that lets you move / arrange the chapter icons on the menu

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by magicianstalk, Nov 14, 2004.

  1. Hey all,

    I have TMPGEnc 1.6, and Sonic MY DVD. They are both decent
    programs - but both have a major fault. I cannot seem to be able to
    arrange the position of the chapter icons on the menus.... That is,
    choosing a background picture is useless if the factory placement of
    the chapter boxes covers parts of the image want..... I have found
    that MemoriesonTV will let you do this, but i want something a little
    more powerful... -- i am suprised that the others don't....

    AM I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    TMPGEnc DVD Author (TDA) will let you rearrange any thing
    you want. It has to be a menu theme that you have made not one
    of the pre-made ones. You can easily make one that is exactly
    like any of the pre-made ones, if that is what you want.

    Just click on the "Edit menu theme" button and say "yes" to the
    question about making a new theme. Make the theme and save
    it. It's a good idea to load up some tracks and decide on your
    background graphic before you save it though. The background
    image and/or clip can be saved with the theme, which is more
    convenient than just using a reference to the files.

    When you are working with your own Theme, clicking on the
    "Edit menu theme" button brings up an editable version of your
    menu. Click on an item and move it where ever you want. You
    can do a lot of other things to it, including replace it with something
    you have made outside of TDA.

    Luck;
    Ken

    Try DVDLab. It allows you to make the menus any way you want.

  5. Except the Pro demo I tried does not allow you to make an image...
    Some bug likely.
