Hi! I'm looking to remove all drop zones from iDVD to have a simple black background that could be replaced with a .mov file.

Essentially, I'd like to remove the 3 drop zones from the "Modern" 7.0 theme.

Please let me know if this is possible, thanks!

    This is from iDVD Help: _Adding or hiding drop zones_

    The drop zones in a theme are a permanent part of the graphics or animations included in that theme. Therefore, you can’t add drop zones, delete individual drop zones, or change the location of drop zones on a menu. You can, however, hide all the drop zones on a menu so that they don’t appear in your final project. This is particularly helpful when you want to create a simple custom theme.

    To hide all drop zones on a menu screen:

    Make sure the menu whose drop zones you want to hide is showing in the iDVD window.

    With your pointer over the menu, press Command-I to open the Menu Info window.

    Deselect the “Show drop zones and related graphics” checkbox.

    The drop zones immediately disappear from the menu, and they do not appear in your final burned project. Some other graphical elements may also be hidden.

    You can always show the drop zones and ornaments again after you’ve hidden them. Simply open the Menu Info window and select the “Show drop zones and related graphics” checkbox.


    To replace the background, open the menu info window. For full directions, go to iDVD Help, and look up _Changing the background image of a DVD menu_.

    I hope this helps.
