DVD ARch2 ?

anyone familiar with using images for buttons in DVDarch2 ?

i have never made anything real fancy with it before, but i was assuming it would work similar to a webpage where, i could make my normal text button, then make the overlay button for when it is selected.

The text options in DVDarch seem week, plus i need this to be on a slant so it looks like the text is laying on a menu.

any help? tried googling and some sights out there for VEgas, but doesnt seem to be a wealth of info for DVDarch...

Check out the Vegas forum at

http://mediasoftware.sonypictures.co...ms/default.asp

There is an entire forum dedicated to DVDA. If your question can't be answered on that forum (or the video forum which is much more active) I will be surprised.

I wouldn't think there should be much of a difference. I remember reading somewhere that doing the same kind of compression cycle twice (in the example, it was jpeg compression, but the principle should hold) made almost no difference, since the same kind of information would be thrown away in each instance.

One of the first things I noticed upon coming over to Vegas a few years ago was its utter stability. It doesn't crash. Period.

Incidentally, I notice that Vegas has a little brother--the Sony Movie Studio. It looks and behaves much like Vegas, but with somewhat less flexibility. You might find it to be an excellent first step.

I've used Nero for years, but one day came across the simplified-interface version called "Nero Express." Now all I use is Express--it does exactly what I need, and does it simply.

Serial Number for AC 3????

I made a photo montage of my brother who is overseas but is in for christmas. I edited in vegas 5 which i am now starting to pick up on very well. I rendered as Mpeg 2 then went to render the audio as AC 3. I was prompted to enter a serial number. Which I could not locate. I did try the serial numbers for DVDA 2 And vegas 5. It gave me the option to buy it but its supposed to come with the software purchase isn't it? I will try to call sony today but my brother leaves tommorow. Can anyone help?


Also DVDA Has acted like its registered online. But then tells me it has only 13,12,11 days left.

AC3 is automatically registered when DVDA is registered. If DVDA is having problems registering, that is your problem. Contact Tech Support and they can help you.

You might want to take a look at vol 2 #6 of my newsletter as well. It gives an interesting technique for indicating the actual selection. While I used words, it can also be used with other shapes as well.

Thanks Edward. I found on another forum that DVDA Ships with version 2.0a and this same problem occured with that user. But was fixed by downloading and installing 2.0b.

Yes- I forgot to mention I blurred the top layer.

Glenn, can you post a still from footage you applied this effect to- I'd love to see it. Thanks.

Sure thing.

And the Veg file (you have to link it to the .wmv file I think)

Hopefully these links work.

Hey thanks. I'm sure it looks better working with it from it's original raw footage.

Do you have any examples of these settings applied to footage that was untouched. I'd be concerned the setting int he VEG file would differ due to the fact you started with footage already heavily tweaked.
