Hi Dave - Chapter intro with light wipe effect .
Heres my design idea for this, it is based around a photoshop image to which you can include your content then create each chapter animation to keep the theme throughout the DVD .
It should be very quick and easy to create each animation by following the simple instructions provided.

Comments:Dave
Absolutely spectacular effect- awsome, this template its one of the finest i have seen to date, would it be possible to include a main menu to make this a complete theme pack?

MAIN MENU
Pro members - The main menu and AF background generator can be downloaded here
Simply replace the images in the photos layer folder with your content using the process described above, then open the AF background generator and render the video.
( please note the AF file includes the images so these will need to be hidden from view when compiling in Encore
)
