Delaying Button Highlights in DVD Studio Pro 3

Setting the delay and creating a highlight overlay file
Creating an overlay
That being the case, we'll now take a look at how you create a highlight overlay, along with a tip or two that should help you match up the positioning of your source footage to the overlays themselves.

For my example, I'll be using a motion menu I created in Apple Motion based on one of that program's templates. It goes a little something like this.



What I want is for my button (which will be the text "Tour Now") become highlighted while there's still a little motion on the screen, but, of course, after the button is actually revealed. This will be around 5:15 into the clip. So here's what I'm going to do.


1. Import the file into DVD Studio Pro.



2. Drag the file into my timeline.



3. Then move ahead to the point at which I want my highlight to appear. Here I add a chapter marker.



4. Now in the Inspector palette, I can choose to save this particular frame as a still image.



(As an alternate to this process, I can also just open my clip in QuickTime Pro and copy the frame in question.)
