There are a number of additional DVD menu templates available at Premiere Elements support site http://Muvipix.com. Many are free and many more are available if you subscribe to the site.
Unfortunately, only a few of them are available for version 2. (Adobe changed for the template format with version 3.)
It's going to be very hard to find support for 8 year old software. Have you considered upgrading to a more current version?
How different are the PrE 2 templates? [One of your books, that I do not have is the one that you co-authored with Chuck on PrE 2.0.]
Within that older program, can one add a new background image, as they can in newer versions?
As I only have later versions of PrE and also Encore (both with some good Menus), I wonder how difficult it would be to adjust one of those, to work in PrE 2.0, with some "Western" image?
Thanks for educating me, and glad that I saw your response, as I would just have pointed the OP to Muvipix, no knowing that the templates had changed. You saved me an order of "egg on my face."
Thank you for the help! Yes, I have considered upgrading to a newer version. I only use this software about one or twice a year, so by the time that I use it again, there will probably be another one out already. I may end up doing that, though.
I looked at muvipix.com and looked through the free and subscriber only templates and didn't see any western ones even for newer versions. Does anybody know if any version after Premiere Elements 2 has a western-themed DVD menu template? If so, which version(s)?
Considering that I only make a couple of DVDs per year, I would definitely like to create one with a more appropriately themed template than just a generic one.
Again, thank you for any help that you can give me!!
After version 3, all disc menu templates continue to use the PAL designation -- although they worked for both PAL and NTSC videos.
There are a couple of templates on the Muvipix.com site for version 2. Just type "version 2 dvd templates" in the product search bar. (I know they're there because I created them for the site!) But just a couple.
As I've said, you're going to find pretty slim pickings for version 2 support. 2005 was a very long time ago, in terms of technology.
I already did the search for the DVD templates on Muvipix and didn't see anything western for any version.
Since I am considering possibly buying a newer version than vesion 2, I am hoping that someone can tell me if there are western DVD templates on any other version. Since I don't have the newer versions, I don't know what comes with them already. I don't want to buy version 9, if version 7 had a western template.
Is there a list somewhere of the DVD menu templates that come standard with each version? That would certainly help me in deciding which newer version to buy.
>deciding which newer version to buy
Since version 9 has been out for about a year, you really are not going to have a choice
Unless you go to an "old" software vendor
Be careful of eBay... lots of hacked fakes there
I would say the only place you're going to find DVD templates for version 2 are on the version 2 installation disc.
I'm ok with buying version 9, but what templates does it have? Does it have any that look western, or like a ranch, or cabins, or woodsy? I would just like to know if my options would really be that much better than what I already have.
So, if anyone on here has version 9, what templates does it come with???
Premiere Elements 9 comes with over 60 disc templates, all of which are customizable. You can replace the background with an image or video loop and you can select the color and fonts for any text.
There are also several additional templates available at sites like Muvipix.com.
Thank you. I will have to check into the newest version more. Thank you everyone!!
