How to Customize Your Own DVD Flick Menu

DVD Flick is an easy DVD authoring tool for users to make their own DVD for free. It allows you to easily add a menu for quick navigation of DVD titles. However, the built-in DVD Flick menu templates are limited. It's far less than enough for a big DVD Flick fan. Want to add your own menu templates to DVD Flick so that you can make a personalized DVD for watching on TV? You can learn how to customize DVD Flick Menu Templates in Part 2.

However, it may be difficult for you to customize a DVD Flick template, or you may have too little time to customize a DVD Flick menu by yourself. Whatever it is, you could try some other DVD authoring and burning software, such as Wondershare DVD Creator (DVD Creator for Mac).

One-click to apply to your DVD movie, no editing needed, or simply personalize your DVD menu template if you wish. See how to use this app to create a DVD with a personalized DVD menu quickly and easily in Part 1.

hello, sorry for the inconvenience. I have reported your problem to technical support. They will contact you within 1 business day.
All my video clips are wide screen, the Wondershare DVD creator shows them widescreen, and the ratio aspect is checked correctly...But when I burn the DVD it has chopped off all the edges of both the menu and the video and appears in standard aspect ratio. ????
Hi Meeno, it's designed in such a way. :)

Hi, Geoff D, currently our DVD creator supports create chapters and menus you ask for, but only supports video, audio and image files, not including the file formats you mentioned. However, I'll forward your request to our develop team in their later development plan. Please stay tuned with us.

We have just released an e-book that is available in four different file formats (.exe, .app, ePUB and Mobi). The files are large so they need to go onto a DVD. We are trying to create a customized menu so that when the DVD is inserted it looks professional. Ideally we had wanted to create a hybrid so that the icons and menu would appear the same irregardless of the O/S but we can't find anybody who seems capable of doing this for us. At the very least we want the DVD to look polished and professional. Any ideas???

You probably have to restart the program for it to work, or more than likely, you will have to put the files and folder[s] in the folder when the program isn't open.
I started to follow these instructions, but they seem full of holes for the average person like me. Thanks, but I'll search for another tutorial before I try to employ this one.
so i created my menu but it's not showing up in options for menus, and I put the file in the templates file.
