At the last minute of authoring a DVD of a birthday party for a friend, I decided to do an animated menu. Animated menus can have an “intro”, “middle” and exit. 3 sections of a single video clip do all three. You can also have an animated menu without the intro and “exit”.
What you will see in this video is the “into”, which leads into the “middle” (the middle loops forever), which is the last frame of this video works-in-progress.

Now, this WMV, is a reduced quality of the original MPEG-2 video that I am working with. Also, this is not the highest quality video that can be done in Blender, but much better than the original DVD menu that planned on (a still photo). I still have to finish this, add music, and some more touch-ups.
Here’s the Blend File…
