DVDit! makes menu creation fast and easy, yet there is a great deal of flexibility to create powerful and attractive menus.
The easiest way to create menus is to follow these two steps:
Drag a menu background from the first palette.
Drag movies onto the menu. Each movie will automatically create a thumbnail button based on the first frame in the movie.
There are many advanced techniques when you need to go further. Here are some of the variations to menu creation:
Menu backgrounds can be created using your favorite graphics editing software. The background dimensions should be 720 pixels by 480 pixels. You then save the final image in Bitmap, JPEG, PICT, Photoshop, PNG, TIFF, or Targa format for import into DVDit!. Menu buttons can be custom drawn in any graphic program. Simply drag these buttons onto the menu background and positioning them wherever you want. Menu text is easily created by dragging any of the fonts from the text menu onto the menu background.
One important and powerful feature of DVD titles is interactivity — the ability for the user to control the flow of movies, audio, and image assets.
DVDit! provides a tremendous amount of control over how assets are linked and how they behave during and after they play.
Drag and drop linking - The most common activity is to link movies, images, and audio to menu buttons. This is as easy as dragging the multimedia asset onto the appropriate menu button. Note that if there is no menu button, a new button is automatically created based on a thumbnail of the movie or image.
Default end actions - If you simply drag movies and images onto menu buttons, these assets will play and then control will, by default, go on to the next asset in the list. This is the simplest way to create DVD titles.
Asset properties - Every asset has an associated set of properties. These can control the action that will occur when the user presses the "next" button, the "menu" button, and what happens when the movie ends. For images, you can also set the duration the image is shown before the end-action occurs, or select "infinite", so that the movie plays over and over, or the image is displayed forever (or until the user presses a button to cause another action to occur).
Once you have defined your menus and linked your audio, video, and image assets, you can create your DVD.
Project settings - Using the Project Settings dialog, you can select the type of output device (CD-R, DVD-R, DLT), disc name, and audio parameters. If you are using AVI or Quicktime files, you can also set the bit rate for the MPEG encoding process.
Output options - Once the project settings are entered, you have a choice of creating a DVD disc (using a CD-R or DVD-R), a DVD folder on your hard drive, or a DLT tape for replication. Each of these is set on a separate menu option, and brings up a dialog box specific to the output operation you have selected.
