Change the Main Menu Name > Create Submenus on the DVD - Pg. 146

iDVD: The Power of a Movie Production House in Your Mac 146 Don't worry about how the first menu looks; you will apply a theme to it after you first set up the submenus that will appear on the DVD. In other words, first create and name all the containers for the content that you are going to place on the DVD; then you will apply the themes to those menus. Refer back to your DVD design document to determine what you will call the top-level menu, how many submenus you will need, and what the name of each submenu is. NOTE The menu that iDVD creates when you create a new project is called the main menu be- cause it is the one from which all others originate. Change the name of the main menu to what you want it to be. Change the Main Menu Name 1. 2. Click on the main menu name. It will become highlighted. Type the menu name that you want to use. Now, add each submenu to the main menu. Create Submenus on the DVD 1. 2. 3. 4. Click the Folder button. A new empty folder button will appear (it will be titled "My Folder"). Remember that a folder is a submenu. Select the folder's name so that it becomes highlighted. A colored box will appear around the folder icon to show you that it is selected, and you will see a slider at the top of the icon. Type the submenu's name. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 until you have created all the submenus that appear on the main menu (see Figure 5.9). Figure 5.9. While this main menu doesn't look very appealing yet, it now contains the four submenus that will appear on the DVD. If any of the submenus that you create has its own submenus, add them to the DVD.
