    I hope this is a simple question. In my menu, I have a background video set up and I have some arrows as buttons. After the text flies in, I want those buttons to pop up instead of being there at the very start.

    In other words, I want it to where when it starts up, the text flies in, and once the text is in place after about 5 seconds, then those arrows appear.

    Is this possible?

    My loop point is set to 5 seconds, however, the buttons are visible from the very start.

    These are the settings for the menu movie timings and the button settings:


    Are there any settings that are wrong?

    This project is kind of at a standstill and I'd really like an answer asap.

    I'm not sure how complex your project is, or what its structure is like, but you could do it by creating the intro part of the menu as a separate movie track, and then set the end jump on that to go to the menu. Any time you want to go to the menu (and see the intro), link to the intro movie track, not the menu itself. You'll also want to disable some or all of the player controls while the intro track is playing, as it'd be a bad thing if it were possible to stop or pause the intro.

    Does that make sense?

    I've done this before with DVD Studio Pro 1.5. It's possible with 4, but has been a while. You might need to assign the video asset as a track asset instead of a menu asset. Then you create a chapter mark at 5. seconds and use overlays at that point.

    There should be an option to have it loop with the start of the menu overlays at 5 seconds.

    I'm gonna try this today. I have a really good feeling it's going to work.
