Chapter 12. DVD Authoring > Creating Video Menus

Creating Video Menus

Motion menus have video playing underneath the buttons to amuse viewers while they're making their menu selection. Video menus come with the same caveat as audio menus: when they're short and repetitive, they get irritating. Plan on using video clips of at least one minute for your video menus, or generic videos like clouds blowing or flags waving where it isn't obvious that they're restarting.
