The challenge was to master a DVD that acts similar to flash with all those mouse over effects, music backgrounds, videos with live navigation controls and so on – just like you see in common flash presentation. Thanks to DVD Studio PRO – without it this task would be simply impossible.
Navigate to menu, select audio track, read further info and go deeper through menus with that music still playing in background – well, that’s a real challenge. Another thing – live menu buttons on video track. User must always have a navigation bar during video playback – not easy task, but definitely doable with DVDSP.
