DVD Studio Pro 4.0 question

Hello Everyone,

Ive got a quick question...maybe not that quick actually.

Im trying to make a menu, but its turning out to be more complicated then i expected. This is the effect Id like to achieve...

I have 6 video clips. In this menu, Id like to have the six tracks listed and a video that plays in the menu. The menu would start with track one highlighted and the video showing track one. As soon as a track 2 is high lighted the video would change and correspond to the selected track. Is this possible?

I appreciate any help, thanks a lot

Do you want motion, or just a static preview of the track contents? And do you actually want to play the video in the menu, or just a 20-30 second preview of video as you high light each track.

If I read correctly, it is possible, but it's a bit tricky!

The way I would do it would be to create 6 different menus - one for each video clip. You just set it so that when you press the down/up arrows, it loads a different menu. Not sure how well it will look - the DVD player might pause a bit too long for your liking when you're navigating around the menu.

You would use this kind of technique:

Give it a shot, and see how it goes...

As far as I know, there isn't an easier way to do it...
