Further to my 29 page PDF Tutorial detailing how to create a DVD Menu from scratch
Installing the Ulead DVD Menu Plug in 2.0
(To modify this to work with PhotoImpact 12 please see This link
Download and install the following zip file.
To work correctly you must have Photo Impact 11 installed in the default installation directory. Unzip the file to C: and ensure you have the use Folder Names box ticked.
When you re-start Photo Impact 11 you will find the DVD Menu plug in located under the effect list on the toolbar.
For a Home Made Highlight Image to work correctly you must make sure that you have converted the object Type to become a Path Object
You can have a moving background video rather than a simple background image.
You can do this easily with the DVD Menu Plug in.
On the Assign Object Name Tab drill down the list on the right until you arrive at IMG_BG and click the entry.
Now on the Bottom left of the Dialog box
Object Class = Background
Item = Background Image.
2 drop down boxes now appear where you can select a video to be used as your backdrop. If this video also contains sound you do not need to select anything in the second drop down box background Audio.
Ah well..... I shall put it into a bit more detail later on but my wife has told me I'm sitting at the computer too much and have to paint the ceiling
See you all soon.
