    Is there any way to add a thumbnail from a separate fille to a dvd menu? instead of a frame from the title i want to add a .jpg as a thumbnail.

    Yes it can be done but it requires some scripting. Select Edit/script

    comment out the 6 lines as indicated by placing a # in the first position.
    Add the 3 new lines, the first should point to your image file using the reader "imagesource"

    Save it and the new thumbnail shoud show up, as you can see from my image where I load the fish

    Code:
    Import("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVStoDVD\Lib\A2DSource.avsi")
    LoadCPlugin("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVStoDVD\Lib\ffms2.dll")
    LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVStoDVD\Lib\ColorMatrix.dll")
    
    #Audio = A2DAudioSource("C:\Users\Public\Videos\test_vid.mkv", CacheFolder="I:\temp_safe_to _delete_from_here")
    #Video = FFVideoSource("C:\Users\Public\Videos\test_vid.mkv", track=-1, fpsnum=30, fpsden=1, colorspace="YV12", seekmode=0)
    image=ImageSource("C:\Users\Public\Pictures\fish.jpg") # load your image here
    
    #Video = Video.ColorMatrix(source=0,dest=2)  
    #Video = Video.ConvertToYV12() 
    image = image.Spline16Resize(720,576)
    #Video = Video.ChangeFPS(25)  
    return image
    #Last = Video

    Okay, so this seems to work for only one thumb? when I try to set the second one the first breaks and when I try to change it the first's scrip changed to the second.

    I don't know what to suggest, but try to do the menu reset from the main screen
    and set it up again. The menu/authoring capability has always been pretty
    basic in this program.
    Perhaps you can try DVDStyler
