I am an Apple cross over, loved DVDSP, easy to use and EASY to create menu transitions.
I want to start creating transitions in Encore using Adobe After Effects (which is the only method possible).
I found a tutorial for this provided by Adobe, wow , what a better person to tell you how to use their machine than the one who built it!!
It doesn't work.
I get to step 15 "Choose Composition> Preview > Ram Preview and I see no animation. (spent hours doing over and over)
Some of the directions are somewhat vague, however, I seem to be getting the correct results. EG, step Step 4 "Double-click the comp in After Effects"
I believe they mean the "Composition" Asset??? (Please don't use abbreviations!)
This is the link to the tutorial:
If someone could verify that :
1. It is correct and I am wrong in my process.
2. It is wrong, missing a step and I am right in my process.
Thanks very mucho for any help

I missed ONE important part.
That was setting a keyframe by clicking on the stopwatch, I thought that the "Stop watch" was the dragable "0.00" in the effects panel.
I couldnt see the actual "Watch" outline that is about 3 x 5 pixels in size. Even with my glasses on, its quite hard to see.
I caught this solution watching a Utube video. "I'm now setting a keyframe" and I watched him do it.

It works but it is crap, there is still a switch to a black screen, a delay and then the "Transition" which is no longer any type of transition at all.
Thanks Adobe for your high quality product. This is not a problem in DVDSP.
See my reply to your other post.
