All templates require both a scene and main menu template in order for the program to recognize them.
But I believe that, if you do not include any scene menu markers in your project, the program will only generate a main menu.
You should be able to see if this is true by applying a template and then clicking the Preview button.
If it this doesn't work, there is a workaround that involves editing the template in Photoshop Elements. But it should work.
thanks for taking the time to reply!
I went back in and made sure I didnt have any scene markers, just the two menu markers. But no, on preview, I see the two menus; the top and then the scene selection.
Could you tell me how to edit a menu as you mentioned?
You must be doing something wrong. When I make menu and have no scene markers in the timeline, I do not get the submenus.
What do you mean by the 2 menu markers? They are scene markers.
I thik what you are looking for is start markers.
Hello and thanks again for replying! JohnnyO, I examined what you said and now see what I was "doing wrong". I followed the book under "menus" where it said "you usually add menu markers before selecting a template" and you are right: that is exactly why it insisted on giving me both main menu and scene menu.
I cleared all markers, then selected a General menu template by dragging it over onto the workspace. The selection takes both the main and scene, but when you hit "apply" it shows only the main.
Problem solved. Thanks so much! I knew this was possible, but it was not obvious.
Also, there is no such thing as a "start" marker, only "menu" "scene" and "stop". FYI (version 4).
Have a great day!
I am happy you got it working. Happy Editing!
Nancy, when you get to the point of wanting to use DVD Menu Markers there is a great article by Forum Host Steve Grisetti
