Step 9: Add Transitions to Buttons

Now your DVD has an attractive menu with customized buttons. You can add more flair
by using transitions to smooth the movement from the main menu of your DVD to
your movie, your scene selection menu, and your slideshow.

To set transitions for the main menu:


Click one of the buttons on the main menu to select it, and then choose Edit > Select
All Buttons.

You can apply a different transition to each button by selecting each button one at a
time and then choosing a transition.
