Encore Menu Button Highlight State

Hey guys, working on making some menus for my DVDs in photoshop, and I seem to have a relatively good handle on it in general. What I don't understand is the highlight state. My buttons are text layers, and I wanted to add a highlight state that was the same thing with a heart next to it. I duplicated the text layer in the group and added a heart, and named it =(1) Highlight, but when I open the menu in encore the heart is always there. I just want in there when they are highlighting it. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Evan

It should be (=1) and not =(1).

Re: Encore Menu Button Highlight State

Thanks Roger, I ended up figuring that out about 15 minutes after this post haha. I did have a few other problems figuring out the selected neutral and active states stuff but I got it to work for now. Random thought. I have an animated intro sequence into the menu I made in after effects, which is my first play action. Is it possible to make a song start playing during that sequence and continue playing during the menu?

Thanks,
Evan

Yes, add the music in the After Effects Composition and render out the menu again or add the audio directly in the Motion tab in Encore.

I recommend doing it in After Effects because it is an animated menu you have.
