Import movie menu

Specific to Premiere Elements version 2019

Import movie menu

Postby abbaker2 » Tue Aug 18, 2020 3:44 pm

I have a movie menu from a previous Premiere Elements (PE v10) movie that I made some time ago.
I would like to use that menu in my current movie. I have the .psd file if that is of any use.
How can I use that menu in my current PE v19 movie?

It sounds like you can just import the PSD file into your new project.

Although if you want to install the movie menu as a movie menu, it gets a bit more complicated.

Here are the instructions for doing so. You'll just have to use version 18.0 instead of version 17.0

Thank you for your response.

Although I believe I followed your instructions, I cannot get one of my previous menus (.png file) to appear as a choice when I open Tools -> Movie Menu in Premiere Elements v19

To recap:

I put my folder (ABB) containing the .png files into

C:/PROGRAM DATA/ADOBE/PREMIERE ELEMENTS/16.0/ONLINE/DVD TEMPLATES/ALL_LANG/General

The file does appear but it appears to be hung up on loading content. Note that I put a blank file named DOWNLOADED.TXT into both the General folder and in my ABB folder.

Note also that in the ALL_Lang Folder, there is a text file called “manifest.text” which, according to the modified date is getting updated regularly. I tried adding an entry for my folder into “manifest.text” but it keeps getting overwritten when I access Tools -> Movie Menu.

What am I doing wrong?

Second question: Can I put a menu AFTER the first title in the video?

I can't tell without seeing your computer, abb. Although, if you are putting the folder into Adobe/Premiere Elements/16.0 rather than Adobe/Premiere Elements/18.0, you are not loading it into Premiere Elements 2019.

Can you post a screen capture of the directory folder that includes your DVD menu?

Steve,

Thank you for your response.
I have prepared the images you asked for but I can't seem to post them.

How do I post a jpg image? I tried drag & drop but that doesn't work.

Note that when I installed PE v19, a folder labeled 17.0 was installed inside the program tree.
No other similarly labeled folder was installed.

Is this a problem?

I don't see any of the PSD disc template files in this folder, abb. All I see is a couple of PNG thumbnails.

Are you trying to install one of our templates or one of your own?

Steve,

I am trying to install a menu template that I used in a movie a long time ago. I don’t remember where I got the original from.

I believe I solved the problem after I read your latest reply.

I replaced the .png files with their .psd equivalent. That fixed the problem. The new menu choice appears under the “General” category.

Thanks very much.
