    If anybody wants some really good ideas to play around with, I have an entire documented layout. Chapters, Menu Ideas, the whole thing.

    I tried my hand before at this and it was okay. I can create in my mind just not artistically. PM for details.

    If anyone wants to add a lens flare, you can do it. I'd appreciate it.

    Nice job Fireman. Just to let you know there are 50 chapters, not 55. ;) But overall it's great.

    With the help of Moleman1138 I put together some more DVD menu screens. I'm posting what I have made so far, because I don't know if I will be able to complete ALL of Moleman's (quite extensive :p ) wishlist.

    Enjoy:

    Holy crap is that awesome. Keep it up Fireman, you're gone beyond the call of duty. :D


    Picture these images rotating with the Immolation Scene music playing in the background.

    I've heard that there's a program called the GIMP which might. I don't have it so i don't know what i can do or where to find it, but i do know that its free. i suggest google-ing it to find out more.


    if anyone has any more Kashyyyk menus like fireman's Mustafar ones, i'd be happy to do another animation of them like i did for Mustafar.

    Yes, the GIMP is a great alternative to Photoshop. I used it myself until I got PS reinstalled and to be honest, there's not too much of a difference if all you want to do is create posters, wallpapers and DVD covers. I would definitely try it out. Here's a link:

    What kind of music would work best for the Kashyyyk menus, Talonias? There really isn't a lengthy Kashyyyk theme.

    How about the droids theme from TPM coz it was used in that scene on kashyyk in ROTS when the droids attack.
