Autoplay Menu Designer builds professional-looking autorun menus for CD-ROM, DVD, USB Flash drives. The user can create a project from scratch or use one of the many pre-built layouts, add graphics, buttons and interactive events to create an autorun menu with engaging look and simple navigation.
The program allows one to create an unlimited number of pages for the menu and even embed several pages into one page. To begin, the user needs to select a layout and configure project settings, such as project folder, Disc Image folder, window style, size, position and background, enable splash screen and localization support, if necessary. The next step is to add content to the menu.
You can add shapes, polylines, text, cooltext, pictures, hot areas, embed RTF text viewer, Flash video, web browsers and media player. Each object can be assigned various interactivity events, so that users can interact with the menu and navigate through the content.
For example, you can set a button to change its caption and play a sound when the user rolls the mouse over it and run an application, open a document or URL link when the button is clicked.
To ensure the menu works as desired, the user can preview the project and make further changes, if necessary. When the menu is ready, the Build Project wizard helps the user to package the project for deployment on a CD-ROM. The output includes the standalone AutorunMenu player, resource files and autorun.dat.
