  • very bad graphics quality of menu

    Posted by Andrei Bocharnikov on April 18, 2005 at 9:42 pm

    i made all the menu graphics myself with PShop but after i built DVD then all the menu appears impossibly bad. It looks too compressed and i can find any options to set up defalt compression for menus in DVD Encore. Please help me to solve this problem, my DVD must be ready tomorrow morning (after 7 hours)

    thank you in advance

    [andrew b.] “…but after i built DVD then all the menu appears impossibly bad”

    Do you mean the entire menu, including the menu background, or just the buttons?

    Are you on NTSC or PAL? At what size was the menu created?

    I was using PS standard preset for PAL D1/DV, 720×576 (with guides). In the Encore i did prewiev and it looks exactly what I want, but built DVD menu is completely bad! Whole picture, not only buttons. It looks very compressed and all the picture flickering and shakeing when you going with mouse over buttons.

    It is realy strange because i did several DVD with Encore but such thing appears first time. I do not know what to do… any idea?

    You could try to use the “flicker removal” action for Photoshop available at Adobe Encore DVD, but from what you are describing I doubt that it will solve your problem.

    Could it be that your menu background somehow landed in a subpicture highlighting layer (a “=1” layer)?

    I found the problem – it was my software DVD player. I was trying to move built DVD to the other computer and playing it with the same brand DVD software player, gave my brilliant picture. The same file plaing without any problem.

    Roadkill, thank you for your time and tips.
