Create a completely blank iDVD theme
Authored by: mrwizard83118 on Feb 16, '08 08:13:08PM

Actually there is a method that is exceedingly simple.

One little known trick in iDVD is that if you want to replace the theme background AND get rid of any drop-zones, you simply click-drag whatever picture you want to use for your theme onto the iDVD window, but BEFORE YOU RELEASE THE MOUSE BUTTON press the Option key and a menu will appear on the screen that gives you the choice of replacing just the background or replacing the background AND dropzones.

If you want a totally blank theme . . . simply create a blank white graphic (640 x 480 pixels in size works nicely) and just do the Option drop into any iDVD theme. You'll end up with a blank theme that still has the title in the size/font specified in the original theme (the one you replaced).

This makes a great way to put your own background in and do away with the drop-zones so you can add your own titles etc. Of course if you want some other pictures that are transparent on top of the background, you'll have to do that yourself with the photo editing program of your choice.
