Buttons


latinangel_13@yahoo.com

Question

Hello. I was wondering if there was a way you could create your own Button Style to add to MyDVD menus. I created a simple button in Adobe Photoshop CS and saved it in the EMC8 folder named BUTTONS, but I guess saving an image into that folder does not make that image appear in Button Style under SETTINGS. Is there a way I can create and use my own Buttons? :D

 

Have you seen 40-year-Old Virgin? Well, you know when you rollover PLAY, etc. a circle appears around PLAY indicating the selection. Is something like this possible in EMC8?

 

Also, is there a way that I can possibly link a TITLE to a movie? Such as in my example above? Instead of selecting a thumbnail for the button, can I link a WORD to a movie/slideshow?

 

Thanks for all of your help in advance! :):huh:

Let us know your secret; it may help other people. :)

Thank you very much! :huh: I figured out how to link a word/sentence to a movie/slideshow and make it look EXACTLY how I want. I also figured out how to change the little preset pictures next to the selected link to whatever you want! I'm sooo excited! lol :D

Well it may not be my secret, since you guys probably already know how and I just happened to barely figure it out. But for linking to a file with just a word, you can go into the Settings dialog box and under BUTTON STYLE chose Birthday Text and then just adjust the font, color, size, etc. of how you want your link to look like. Once you click preview to view the animated menu, when you have the link selected, you will see a balloon appear next to your link, since it is programed to use the BIRTHDAY TEXT, thus the balloon. To get rid of the balloon or to just change the little image that appears to the left of the text when selected, you have to go into MY COMPUTER > C: > PROGRAM FILES > ROXIO > EASY MEDIA CREATOR > VIDEO UI > CONTENTS(i think that's what the file is called. I'm not at my home computer right now) > BUTTONS. Once in the BUTTONS folder, you can either just temporarily delete the BirthdayTest file (the one with a picture of a red balloon) or, if you'd like to change the image, right click on it and go to PROPERTIES. In PROPERTIES, unselect the Read-Only check box and click APPLY and then OK. Now, open it up in an image editor (Adobe Photoshop) and change the image to whatever you'd like. Just make sure that the image is RED, since that's the only color (I tried) that will show up in your MyDVD Menu. (NOTE: Don't worry about the red color. You're image will not be RED in the MyDVD Menu, the image will be whatever color you have specified the highlight color to be.) Hope this helps! :huh:

What product and version are you using? This feature is not yet available in the retail version of EMC8. The 'settings' is greyed out.

 

I'm using the RMC8 Retail version. Yes, I know it's greyed out, but in a previous posting, it said that if you DID NOT apply the EMC8 Upgrade, you could press CTRL+R and the Settings dialog would come up, so I uninstalled the program and then reinstalled it and did NOT download/install the upgrade and the Settings feature works! "Settings" will still be greyed out in the drop down menu, but u can use the shortcut! So just don't install the EMC8 upgrade and it should work fine! Mine does! :)

Sorry, MyDVD uses preset templates only. As far as I know, you can not create your own buttons and then link them to a file.

 

can I link a WORD to a movie/slideshow

 

Yes, but you still have to use a preset template that uses words as buttons. Several are included. Make sure you have the Content Disc loaded.
