HDMV InOut Effects PhotoShop Script


A number of people on the forum have asked about HDMV In/Out Effects, including me.  Unfortunately, there appears not to be much known about them/it.

You can do them in Scenarist, but I don't have that.  Seeing the tutorials I found on the WEB didn't help much as Scenarist/Designer…

Experts Corner: DVD to BD-J Transition or Going around in Circles




The following is a PDF of a presentation.  It is my view of some things I struggled with and the discoveries I made (some with the help of others) when I started working with BD-J in general and DSA in particular.  It is mainly about menus.


Hopefully it will help those new to BD-J understand menus a little quicker.  Experienced people may pick up a pointer or two or a new idea that they can use.
