DVD menus are notorious for being bland. They take time to make and usually turn out to be the least impressive element in a production. After the many hard-worked hours that it takes to complete a project, you don’t want the DVD menu to ruin the delivery of an awesome production. Remember: the DVD menu is the first thing that the client will see when they pop that little disc in. You need it to be impressive.
A while back, I reviewed a “Pro Motion Menu Template” from Precomposed.com. Below is a video of the menu in action.
“Pro Motion Menus” are built heavily in After Effects so, naturally, they take time to customize and render. Jon Geddes, the man behind Precomposed, also has menu templates called “Zip Kits,” that are simpler templates built solely in Adobe Encore, which saves a ton of time. Below, is an overview of one of his Zip Kits.
