Chapter 11. Creating Menus and Branding Shows

11. Creating Menus and Branding Shows

It’s time to turn our attention to the final product. ProShow lets us create Shows in a variety of Output formats; most make use of Menus, icons, thumbnails, and “About This Show” clips to provide information and a user interface to the viewer. ProShow provides a complete menu-authoring system, with an extensive array of customization features to polish our Shows and provide a professional visual invitation for viewers. Setting up the Menu is one of the first steps in the Output process.


It’s possible to create professional-looking Menus with either version of ProShow. The advanced Branding and Copy Protection features, and the ability to use Producer’s Projects to include more than one Show on a disc, are available only with Producer. (See the detailed comparison of features in ProShow’s versions in Appendix B.) For those reasons, we’ll use Producer throughout this Chapter for the Exercises and the Chapter illustrations.

Locate the Chapter 11 Folder on the CD-ROM. Move the Folder, with all its contents, to a hard drive on your computer. Remember that the files must be on a writeable device to work properly.
