It is hoped that they provide you with quality information on your journey into making Liquid your editor of choice.

Butch was kind enough to allow me to submit a tutorial about making menus in Liquid.  The fact that I was able to do so does not indicate any real skill on my part, rather it indicates how easy menu making actually is.  Easy, that is, if you do not start with a premade menu and try to customize it.  Menu making is a very straightforward process with easy to understand steps that will take you from start to a successful finish.

In the tutorial above the menu that is made turns out pretty fancy.  But it is not really more difficult than a basic menu with a photo background.  It just takes a few more steps.  I encourage all new users to give custom menu making a try.  You will be pleasantly surprised.

Very nicely done. My only comment is the time it takes before the flash movie starts. Even with my dsl connection, it took a looong time before the video began to play.

I highly recommend using Vimeo to upload and convert your tutorials to flash movies. You can upload up to 500mb of movies per week...including HD movies and either create a 'channel' to feature the tutorials similar to my USS Oriskany channel or you can embed the code to have the flash movie show and play on your own web page like this example.

I am having a problem with Animated Picons so I thought that I would have a look at the Training Video to find out what I am doing wrong. Saved the Flash Video to a downloads file but when I try to play it, I get the message "Trial Expired Prism Video Converter". 'Oh, woe is me', can I do nothing right!

With animated picons, the footage does not have to be in the timeline. I use sublips. You just need to make sure that the footage is as long as the DVD menu.

Ed,

Firstly, I have managed to get the tutorial (mentioned above) to work but the download sure is slow, good tutorial though and well done!

I have had a problem getting animated buttons to work properly. To let you understand, I learned Liquid from the Adita training tutorials for Edition so my knowledge is not totally up-to-date.

I have been frustrated that my authored DVD's with animated picons don't work on my Panasonic nor on my new Sony blu-ray player. I wasted disk after disk -r, +r, x1 write, x2 write, eventually went to -rw and nothing worked. Tried VBR, CBR, reduced, e-mailed Paul Ekert who suggested various things to try - Zilch! No joy!

About to go to bed in disgust, I went through to say good-night to my wife who was in the conservatory when I remembered that she had a combo on her TV there, bought from ASDA for 2 x bubblegum wrappers - whatever, it was cheap. I have now tried the -r, +r, VBR, CBR, et al and they all WORK PERFECTLY!

So I have a decision to sleep on - either Panasonic and Sony need to brush up their acts or AVID, sorry Pinnacle Liquid is total crap on DVD authoring! I'll try again to-morrow with Studio Ultimate 12.

I have had problems in the past with Sony players being unable to read home burned discs.  I have Phillips, Sylvania and Magnavox players in the house and they have no trouble.  Who knows why?

Liquid problem -
I (not Liquid) have a problem.  Yesterday I was at an outdoors event, and took a lot of Video, unfortunately something went wrong with a bit of it.  Some of the clips are very dark - clear and good but dark.  About four of them.  I think they are usable  I hope so.
I have been looking all day and just can not find how to brighten them up and see what I get as I go.

Anyone care to help me a little please?

Just in case ... there are (without checking) brightness/contrast filters in the RT, Classic and Commotion filter sets.

You can also try the AutoColour correction filter (RT I believe) - that sometimes works for me.

The one I always go to first though is the clip viewer's basic colour adjustments (no keyframing on this one) - to get to that (in my set up) double click on a clip - it depends on how you've set up the double-click result for a clip - then open the colour adjusters by clicking on the arrow top right of the clip viewer display. You can adjust highlights, medium tones and shadows independently (each colour and brightgness in each case), plus overall saturation and hue. But as I say, no keyframing on this one.

Resetting any value - simply click on the 'dot' next to the value.

Once (and if) you manage to correct one clip that way, you can save the settings (bottom of clip viewer's colopur correction setting), then apply those settings - perhaps as a starting point - to the next clip by loading them in again.

Now if I've given you a whole exercise in sucking eggs, apologies!
