This package allows the recreation of the complete effect above
The after Effects project contains currently the PAL composition

Firstly install the fonts supplied in the download

Open the source file/Encore dvd menus/chick_enc_pal.psd
This is the first play dvd menu video
and change the text layers to your requirement do not create any additional layers in this file

After saving the files (do not rename)
Open the after effects project firstgrader.aep

It is Best to preview the project first of all to identify where the various text entries will appear
The scene video titles are located in the final composition simply locate the text layer and edit the respective text entry

The final composition will compile your complete first play video
The DVD menu background is up to you there are several options use the supplied video background or the image in the DVd menu have fun here

To include your Videos .
Simply use the replace footage feature from the asset panel to replace the respective video holders 1-4
they are clearly numbered

We have also included the audio in the after effects composition so this can be exported with your movie

The download is in compressed RAR format.
