        You can also try the second option to use jpeg2yuv instead of png2yuv

      Cleaned the temp directory, then I set in Tools->Setup, Render animated DVDMenu temp image as: jpeg, but still want to use png2yuv:

      Exiting... (End of file)

        You need to also set the command in the CommandQueueDialog from
        png2yuv -j ...
        jpeg2yuv -j ...
        ( third drop down box in the menu )

        Once you select this you should click on the 'd' button to the right of it. This way it will be used as the default from now on and you don't have to think about it anymore.

        Sorry I will make this automatic when I find some time.

        Varol :)
