I know how to make a motion menu but up til now I just kept it relatively simple. Today I was playing around and decided to try and make a motion menu with a movable button(homemade, see knife in attachment).
I did the motion menu process and the finished product had the button but it didn't move like I want it to. I want the knife to move from one word to the other on the menu. Oh, before I forget I am using DVDLab Pro.
Any help would be appreciated.

a motion menu is just a background movie. the buttons on top of it don't move.
If you are happy having the knife as a single colour icon then you can create it as a subpicture and simply use the different button states to make if visible or invisible as the user moves up and down the menu.
If you want it to be full colour then you will have to use switched menus, which really precludes you from using motion menus as every time the user moves up or down the menu loop will have to start again. this will be annoyingly slow for most users, and look pretty crappy.

Oh, I also found the "Hotspot"button to be very helpful as well as it allowed me to group the text, the button and the links into one package.
Thanks for the information!
