If you'd like to use these styles, you need to download them from our website.

To add a file to one of the available Work Areas, you need to left-click within this work area and select the file in the opened Windows Explorer window.

    Note!Note: the number of available work areas depends on the selected menu style and corresponds to the number of empty areas on the menu main page.

  • Background Music - use it to select the audio file that will be played back during navigation through the disc menu. To do that click the Browse... button next to the field and choose the desired audio track in the opened Windows Explorer window.

Editing Input File(s) window - Preview In the upper right area you can preview the resulting disc menu. Instead of the Main Page you have already entered the name of your movie or disc.
