disc menus in PrE 10

I have been using Premiere Elements 10 for a while now. I like most of the "improvements" but I miss some of the old "stuff" - especially one particular disc menu. It was a fairly plain blue screen (with a swirl of yellow) that had the option of multiple Main Menu Markers, 6 scenes per screen on the subsequent pages and NO sound.

 

I can't find anything like it in the new version and am having trouble adapting the options that are availiable. I want a plain background (which I replace with my own photo), more than one Main Menu Marker on the *first* screen (not "continued" on the next page) and no music or sound effects at all.

 

I've added the additional menus I found on the Adobe site, but none of them fits the bill. I still have my old (PrE 8 or 9?) software. If there is no suitable disc menu for the new version, is it possible to import them from the old software discs?

 

Any help with a really "plain" menu, that I can adapt myself would be appreciated. I'd also like info on deleting music from the pre-installed menus. So far I've only been able to record a track of "silence" in Audacity and "trick" Elements into accepting it as an alternate audio track.

 

Any thoughts/suggestions on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The menu templates for version 8, 9 and 10 are similar enough that you should be able to copy the DVD template folder from one to the other's Program Files folder.

    Further to Steve's comment, copy them into the \DVD Templates\Common folder. You can do the same with movie themes but the directory is then to the \Movie Themes folder.

     

    Should you update to PRE11 the folder to copy to is \ProgramData\Adobe\Premiere Elements\11.0\Online\DVD Templates\All_Lang.

    There are lots of DVD menu templates at http://Muvipix.com.

    Imstall PRE7 (it won't interfere with PRE10) and its templates. Then copy the templates to the PRE10 folders. You can then uninstall PRE7.

    Yes. You can remove the audio by removing the WAV file from the folder -- or replacing it with your own audio.

    The "old" disc menu is working well in the newer version of PrE.

     

    Great news, and thanks for reporting your success.

     

    Good luck,

    Any chance the menus from PrE v4 will work with v10 if moved/copied in the same manner?

    OOps, my bad, I meant PrE v2 (v4 is PSE in the bundle).  Would PrE v2 menus work?

    No. Adobe changed the format of the templates in version 3.
