Your work is appreciated and we do know the hours it takes, but lets not add any un-needed time into the equation. Thanks for what you are working on, it looks great!
I mentioned that the details regarding the menu backgrounds won't add any time to the completion. They are just assets dropped in totally separate from the menu graphics themselves.
The idea isn't to just get a disc out as soon as possible, I could've done that long ago using a poor menu and one-click software. Yeah, I want it out so that it can be enjoyed by others but it has to be done right cause this is very time consuming, much more involved than making DVD demonstration discs, so there won't be much of a desire to go back and rework the disc in the case of any errors.
The clips aren't going to get old. There are quite a few old movies on there. Bug's life, iRobot, 5th Element, Pearl Harbor. This stuff won't be old anytime soon.
It won't be out this week. I'm out of town on business then have the holiday the weekend. I can only work on it when I get the chance here and there. With the menus about done, all that is left is to author the disc, build navigation ect, but with Scenarist being very very meticulous I'm certain there are going to hurdles I currently don't know about.
Then, I have to test the disc in as many players as possible to make sure my menus and/or clips don't have any big problems.
The light at the end of the tunnel for this project is now visible but it doesn't change that the work needs to be right. Think of it as measure twice cut once.
