1. Customize main background: As you can see, you can either use the frame of the video or choose an image from your computer to set as the background picture.

2. Customize background music: For background music, you can choose your favorite songs and set the fade in and fade out effects. You can also trim the music to get the part you want and adjust music volume to get the best effect.

3. Customize the thumbnails: For the scene thumbnails, the same as main background, you can use the frame of a video or your favorite image as the thumbnail.

After you finished the customization, you can go to "Preview" tab to preview your DVD menu. If you are not satisfied with it, go to "Menu" to modify it until it goes right. If it's OK, you can go to "Burn", select the output name and burn your home videos to DVD discs. You can also save the files to your computer in ISO or DVD folder.

Hi,shane. You can also hit the Menu tab and then click Customize Background. In the pop-up window, you can tick Use Other Image to load any picture you like.
Ye but then I still have the scene selection on the Main page... I can't delete it. I have to manually drag every single one off of the screen so the main page is a title cover like all standard DVD movies. Plus the templates have Powerpoint timing with some of the templates. The background music doesn't kick in till around 10 seconds after everything has finished appearing or sliding into place which makes it look like an edit mistake. Honestly, the biggest problem you guys have is the templates; The preloaded ones aren't what we as a community are looking for and the ones off of the website aren't making your case any better. Alfred Sette has the same problem I'm having.
Hi, shane. If you’re not satisfied with the provided DVD menu templates, you can hit Menu tab and then click the Customize Background button (on the bottom of the interface) to upload your images from the local computer.
Is there anyway to make a custom template. These templates make every family movie I burn look super cheesy. I just want a blank template so I can put in a custom background with sound. EDIT: I found I can use the Violin template and send everything off the screen so It's not included in the main page. It would be amazing to have a template editor or something of the sort. Even a way to edit the code would be nice if I knew what file it was.
Hi, LI. It is probably because that your DVD Player is not compatible with the DVD.
I cannot choose what i want to watch by scrolling through and viewing the scenes.
