((we can create menus from the film snapshots (still images) on request))
2) (DVD AUTHORING) WHAT IF I WANT ANIMATED (MOVING) MENUS?
We can produce animated menus where necessary.
We require the film footage (normally 10 – 20 second) clip to produce the menu(s) loop. (we can create animated menus from a section(s) of your main film on request)
3) (DVD AUTHORING) WHAT IF I WANT CHAPTERS?
No problem. We can insert chapter points at regular intervals or by your own locations. We need to know how many chapter points you require (or you can leave it to us) We will create a chapter menu jumping to different parts on the main film.
