How to Customize DVD Flick Templates
Since there are only 6 DVD Flick menu templates available, you may wonder whether these templates can be customized. The answer is definitely yes. Here let's see how to do it in two ways.
You can customize DVD Flick templates with Notepad or other text editors. If you choose this way, it's suggested that you prepare pictures (.bmp or other format) in the size given above. And then comes the hard part: template.cfg editing with Notepad or your favorite text editor. The template.cfg file looks like this:
Name = "The Party";
Author = "Dennis Meuwissen";
Description = "Rather festive.";
Copyrights = "Main menu photo by Nicole Hanusek Title select photo by "imedagoze" Subtitle select photo by Jose Gonzalez Audio select photo by "bitzi"";
transColor = "255,0,255";
The Name, Author, Description, and Copyright will be shown while you are choose DVD Flick menu template. The transColor option is used to make portions of an image transparent, allowing the background image to show through. Then comes the parameters for each menu, including Main menu, Title menu, audio menu and subtitle menu. Next, I will explain the key parameters for the menu. Refer to these parameters while you are editing the DVD Flick template.cfg file.
Title menu allows you to select the video you have added to the DVD disc. Options under titleMenu section decide how the title menu will look and respond. The backgroundImage, highlightColor, and selectColor options are identical to those in Main menu settings.
Another solution is to use an online menu maker called Coffee Fueled Creations. It gives your DVD Flick menu a personal or professional touch with your own images and colors.
To use this online menu maker, just fill the blank and hit submit. Then a file will be downloaded automatically. After the file has been downloaded, just make a folder in Program files\DVD Flick\templates and then paste the unziped files into there. This will make your theme appear in the DVD Flick Program.
