    Crazy Menu Button Behavior

    This is my first post, so I will try to give you enough information the first time around. I have captured video, edited it, created menus and burned multiple dvds all with no issues. However, now I went back to mydvd project made a few changes and a crazy thing is happening --- when I "Animate Preview" of my menu, the menu "up" style button blips in the preview window on the menu before the preview of the movie. Unfortunately, I was fiddling with the project so I am not able to tell you exactly what I did between the time it was working and the time the mysterious blip happened. Here are my Environment Details OS: Windows Vista Application: Roxio MyDVD (Creator 2009 Special Edition) Menu Style: Sports Source (for animated menu): All movies on menu Here are other things I have tried: * Removed "up" style menu button. The blip disappears. * Added "previous" style menu button. The blip is back, blipping the graphic of the button I selected. * Changed source to "All Movies", then I picked 1 movie. Blip is still there as along as a menu button is on the menu. * Made the menu still, then applying motion again. (saving the project in between). Still a blip. * Added and removed various other graphic menu buttons. Now the blip is the new graphic. * Removed all movies from menu. Since nothing to animate in the menu (except for the background), I just see the faded checkerboard of the animated movie preview square. * I also tried creating a simple new project (2 submenus and 1 video) with Sports Menu Style and different videos. Same blip. * Then I tried other menu styles. Same blip. * And yes, I have searched the help files, the forums as well as google, etc. I tried to do my due dilligence before bothering you. Is there a setting I am missing? Cause this was not happening before. Or did I corrupt something? If you would be able to help me I would be very appreciative as this is driving me nuts. Please Help?! Update: Ok I removed my previous (incorrect) updates as I believe the issue has to do with the difference between hardware and software render. When I use hardware render, all is ok. When I use software render, the blip appears. Unfortunately, I have to use software render due to the screen tearing issue. So I resorted to changing all buttons to text, kept software render and burned. Not exactly what I wanted, but it is a compromise. I am going to look into hardware vs software a little more, but in the meantime if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
