    I have played with DVDLAB and well it is a tedious program IMHO. Then
    again maybe I need a walk thru. Anyhow I want to make a Music Video
    DVD. I was hoping to have the DVD menu start with a video clip and then
    go into backround music with each music video as an animated icon of
    the clip or something dazzling of sorts.


    Can anyone suggest a program or a guide?


    Thanks

    DVDLAB take awhile to get up to speed I find. Videohelp.com has
    tutorials. www.videohelp.com


    With a little creativity, TDA should do what you want.

    Track 1 will be the "intro video", "first play action" set to "play
    first track only", when "intro video" is finished it will revert to
    menu which can be a background video with music that loops.

    1- Start > Creat new project > add file > add new track > add file >
    add new track > add file

    2- Creat menu = yes

    3- Menu display settings = First play action = Play first track
    only

    Menu display settings = Action to take after each = play next
    track ( or you might want menu displayed after each track)

    Menu display settings = General = Only main menu = check


    4- Edit menu theme = yes

    5- Edit = Specify background = Motion back ground video clip will
    have your menu background music, this loops, (you could use static
    image in your background but it has to be in the video clip if you
    want menu background music). Make sure "Use motion menu" and "BGM"
    are checked.

    6= Edit menu theme = Delete "Track image #1" and "Play all button"
    (this will play video intro again)


    If you want a "Play all button" without playing intro video track 1,
    "Track image #2" is kind of the Play all button now. You can simulate
    a "Play all button" by making a few second blank video and use that
    as "Track 2" and change "Track image #2" to a play button image.
