Rotating Media

Can you rotate media in DVDA? Like rotate the actual video on the menu?

I've never seen it but I'm still using DVDA3.
Unless of course you mean to "turn the disc around" ;-)

Hehe,good one, no, I mean when you drop the media/video into DVDA for the menu, it's square, I was hoping you could rotate the media file.

I was actually think about this after I posted my VERY thought provocking answer ;-) and I wonder IF...you did this in Vegas and then used it as the thumbnail. You are talking about a thumbnail for the menu right? Or am I off in my own little world again?

Sing to the tune of 'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas' ... I'm dreaming of a Bears Win-just like the one in 85--with the offense running the defense tackling and special teams scoring points...

That might be close.

Bump, I couldn't figure out how to rotate it. I guess I'll put that on my wish list.

BTW, which way do you want to rotate it?

Also have you tried Track Motion?

In DVD A 3, no. In DVD A 4, yes.
If you want a rotating menu object in DVDA 3, you'll need to render it as part of the video render in Vegas, using track motion.

Track motion in DVDA? I didn't know it had it. Geez, I need my manual.

Ok, my project will explain better than I can. I have a bilboard, we took a picture of the bilboard. On the billboard are pictures of the B&G, sayings and such. We took the picture with the expressed purpose of using it for the DVD background. So I have the billboard in black and white, and wanted to insert the reception media in and rotate the media, forward the media to a point that it looks like it was posted on the billboard orgininally.

Call me crazy, but this is the detail that we like to provide. Something different something new.

I ended up using a diamond shape button for the media, fixing the contrast to be b/w and then forwarding the media to a point of a portrait of the b&g. So I came up with a decent comprimise.

Thanks for the time Don. Thanks Douglas.
