How to Create a Blu-ray Menu with Express Burn

Burning a video to a Blu-ray disc is great, but adding a Blu-ray menu will bring your Blu-ray to life. Whether you’re burning a Blu-ray for short films, movies, home films, business presentations, or video compilations, creating Blu-ray menus is a must.

We have all heard the saying, “First impressions matter” and it applies to your Blu-rays as well. As the first screen your audience sees and the centerpiece of your movie, a Blu-ray menu makes your Blu-ray movie more professional and stands out from the crowd rather than just looking like another low-budget production.

Blu-ray menus allow viewers to easily navigate through the video and choose specific parts or chapters of the video to watch. With Express Burn you can not only burn videos, add Blu-ray chapters, but you can easily apply Blu-ray menu templates and edit them accordingly. Learn how to create a Blu-ray menu in just a couple of steps with Express Burn Blu-ray Menu Maker, one of the best Blu-ray creators available.
