INSTRUCTIONS FOR SOFTWARE USERS

Version Compatibility
Our Range of DVD menus categorised for Studio are currently
fully compatible with most versions of studio up to 12.0

All downloads are supplied in compressed ZIP or RAR format and contain
TGA DTL and Images/ menus in Pinnacle format

Installing a DVD menu in Pinnacle Studio
Step 1. Download the Studio version menu you wish to use.
Step 2. Extract the downloaded Rar file to your preferred location



Step 3. The download contains 2 folders namely FONT + STUDIO_FILES
Step 4. Install the supplied FONT from the font folder
Step 5. The STUDIO_FILES folder contains 3 separate folders containing all the menu components
Backgrounds ,Buttons, Standard Menus

Simply copy the contents of the above 3 folders to the respective named folders located in your Studio program directory.

 v 8.0 
ie  Backgrounds folder         <to Directory > Studio/media/dvd/Backgrounds -folder
     Buttons folder                <to Directory > Studio/media/dvd/ Buttons- folder
     Standard menus folder    <to Directory > Studio/media/dvd/ Menus- folder.

 v 10.0 
ie  Backgrounds folder         <to Directory > Studio/Backgrounds -folder
     Buttons folder                <to Directory > Studio/ Buttons- folder
     Standard menus folder    <to Directory > Studio/Standard Menus- folder.

 v 12.0 
On my Vista machine the menu components for Studio 12 Ultimate are as follows:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\Content
Within the “Content” folder there are sub-directories for all of the components as shown in the picture below:

So the menus go into the relevant menu folder (standard or 16x9); buttons to the buttons folder; motion backgrounds to relevant motion backgrounds folder (standard or 16x9): and so on.
I tend to store audio in my own music directory rather than the “Sound Effects” folder but that’s a personal thing. Everything I have downloaded and stored within the content folders described has been instantly accessible within Studio and some of the stuff has been brilliant – keep up the good work team!

Cheers,
