Setting the menu subpicture start point

Sometimes you do not want the menu subpictures to be visible the moment that a menu is displayed. For example, if you create a menu with a video background that fades up from black, you would probably want the subpictures to appear only after the fade.

To set a menu’s subpicture start point:

  • Click the menu’s icon in the Project window. The Attributes window displays the menu attributes.

  • On the Attributes window’s General tab, change the Subpicture Start timecode by dragging the slider or entering a time value.

After changing the subpicture start point, you must preview the project and “render” the menu to see the effect.
