Introduction to Preparing Menu Sources

This chapter describes the various components, such as backgrounds, overlays, buttons,
and drop zones, and strategies you can use to create menus in DVD Studio Pro.

The types of menu sources you need for your DVD project depend on the types of menus
you want to use:

• Will the backgrounds be still images or contain full-motion videos?

• Will you use the provided shapes for your buttons or create your own?

• Will you use the standard method of creating menus or the layered method?

Before you can know how to prepare your menu sources, you need to understand how
DVD Studio Pro uses them. Following is an overview of what makes up a menu and how
menus are used.
