Encore CS6 crashes when I import PSD file as BD Pop-Up Menu

Hi there,

 

I am trying to create a multi-page pop up menu in a Blu-ray project on a mac and also got the Rivergate software BluStreak Tracer (although right now it looks like I might never get to that step).

 

I created a single PSD file containing 5 pages and did all the "programming" exactly like this tutorial describes it (and they successfully created a multi page pop up BD with Encore and BluStreak) http://rivergatesoftware.com/tutorial-12tangos-1

 

Here is what mine looks like:

Whenever I import the 3.2MB big PSD file, Encore gets to 50% and then crashes. Unfortunately, I found a post on Creative Cow where someone described a similar issue and was only able to resolve the issue by taking out all the programming tags like # and (+ ) etc. http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/145/864292

 

Is there a way around it or is Encore simply too buggy?

 

UPDATE: Just out of curiousity I deleted folder by folder and re-imported into Encore. When I deleted #5, #4 and #3, it started working. A shame! It seems Encore can only handle so many pages within one file?? Anyone experiencing this? I am surprised that there don't seem to be a lot of people trying to get a clean multi-page pop-up menu with encore…

 

Thanks for any help!

    Strange.  Don't know if I'm reading this wrong:  http://help.adobe.com/en_US/encore/cs/using/WSf01dbd23413dda0e-3ea6876 0123ebe30b7c-7fff.html or the example pic they provided is incorrect, but it appears the page tags are in perentheses. 

     

    So instead of just "#5 scenes 4" maybe try "(#5) scenes 4" and that would work?

     

    And in my experience (which may be the completely incorrect way), I wasn't quite sure how to do the background images to the popup menu to begin with, so I simply put the background images into the button folder.  So instead of having a folder called "(+) BG1" with the background image, just put that same image in the "(+) settings p0" folder.

     

    Hopefully some of this will help?

    You are correct. You can also just do (#) without numbers.
