Customizing iDVD, Part 2
Last time around with iDVD 2, we took a look at methods for creating custom buttons by replacing the default buttons with ones that you've created yourself. This week we look at an additional possibility with buttons--the ability to add to the list of available default buttons.
iDVD, of course, is a consumer-level DVD authoring tool that comes standard on all Macintosh systems that include a DVD burner. Though it's designed for consumers, it has certainly found a place for itself among professional users as well, particularly post houses that want to supply their clients with footage on DVD rather than VHS.
And for this purpose, iDVD 2 is ideally suited--well, almost, anyway. You might say that the preset buttons and themes that ship with iDVD don't exactly exude an air of professionalism. This is easily rectified.
Of these, the two files that serve as icons in iDVD are Classic.Icon.tif and Classic.tif. So, if you intend to create custom icons for your custom buttons, these are the files to modify.
