1. Unzip the files to an easily accessible folder on your computer.
2. Open Reel DVD with a new project, if its not starting with a new one already.
3. Drag the file, BlueBackground.psd, from the explorer window onto the storyboard area. The video bar in the track window will show content.
4. When
prompted by Reel as to the type of file you're importing, select "Still Menu."

5. Drag the BlueBackgroundOverlay.psd file from the explorer window and drop it on top of the Background file. The track window will now show SP1 (subpicture stream one) as having content as well. Notice how a "Buttons" track appears along with the Sp 1 track. This will show content as soon as we select those "hotspots" for the menu overlay.



At this time the preview window should also show the .psd file overlayed on the video
