Menu background with DVD Author 3?

vbimport

#1

I use TMPGEnc DVD Author 3, but can’t figure out how to use a still pic (JPG, etc.) other than one of those supplied as the menu background. It’s easy to stop a movie at any point and use that frame, but I don’t see any way of importing individual graphics files.

Most backgrounds that came with the program are crappy.

Thanks for any help.

In your menu editor, simply double-click on the existing background and follow the prompts to the file browser. You can also create your own menu templates, rather than using the provided ones, and save them.

Thanks for the info. I had been misled because the File option in the File Browser > Change by using the Wizard has the description, “Imports a video file.” I hadn’t checked it out because I foolishly assumed only files with video extensions could be accessed. Happily, that’s not the case.

Thanks again for your help! :slight_smile:

Yes, it takes some exploring to find all the tricks, and often you get forced to run through the wizard. But there’s very little in the way of custom menus that can’t be done in TMPGEA

I avoid the wizard to get the full power of the tool.
