Hi All,I'm about to go on a search for some nice menu buttons, but thought I'd ask here first if anyone has a preferred source for pre-made little graphics of this kind. I can make them in…Continue

"Thanks, Craig. That's very similar to what I ended up purchasing, which is a program called ArtText, which I used on that project."

"I don't know of anyone selling pre-fab buttons. But you might be able to find what you are looking for by purchasing clip-art. You won't get the 3 button states, but it you have 1 state it shouldn't be too hard to create the other 2.…"

Hi All,I'm about to go on a search for some nice menu buttons, but thought I'd ask here first if anyone has a preferred source for pre-made little graphics of this kind. I can make them in Illustrator, but if you know of a good website with some "off-the-shelf" buttons with three states to use in a Blu-ray menu, I'd love to know about it. What I'm looking for is something that looks like a jukebox button, maybe with a bit of lighting, and that is customizable to put different numbers in the…See More

"It still works, just change the filename suffix. The m4v's Media Encoder makes are not the same as iTunes M4V files. Adobe's just being wacky in the name of their useless Encore authoring app."
