Archived - Compressor 3.5.3 and 4: "Create DVD with White Menu" template results in black band

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.


In OS X Lion, when creating a DVD using the Disc Template > Create DVD with White Menu preset, the resulting menu will have a black band.  This also occurs in Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 5, and Motion 4 when using the Share menu to create a DVD.


To avoid this issue, you can add a custom background image:

  1. Click the "Background: Add" button in the Job Action tab of the Inspector
  2. Browse to a custom background image file.
  3. Click Open. 

Alternatively, you can also use the other preset in the Disc Template menu when creating a DVD.

This document will be updated as more information becomes available.
