DVD Menus they don't want you to know about.
« on: February 16, 2009, 04:04:24 AM »
Main Menu.
Chapter selection menu 1.
Chapter selection menu 2.
Chapter selection menu 3.
Main menu music (AC3 format).
Chapter menu music (AC3 format). 

The music was a no-brainer.  It's the X-Files theme.  I downloaded a 3 minute MP3 then used separate chunks for the main menu and the chapter menus.

Also yay for post count nudging me into Big Montana territory.

Very nice -- what DVD author software do you use?  I use an old version of TMPGEnc DVD and it doesn't allow multiple audio tracks...  it doesn't allow much of anything.

I use Mediachance's DVD Lab Pro.

Right on --- I usually try to find some original title art for the main menu (i.e. from the teaser trailer or TV spot) and just do a screen capture.  It's kinda plain but it works...
