MenuShrink Guide Updated

MenuShrink Guide Updated I decided to update the MenuShrink guide today to cover the latest version (v2.0). Several changes were made to the program, but the main change is the ability to preview the menus during the processing and select different frames.
For those of you who are not familiar with the program, it can reduce the size of DVD menus by converting motion menus to still menus while keeping the menu functionality. DVD Shrink can convert motion menus to still menus but it cannot keep menu functionality. In the guide I compressed a 682.53MB motion menu to a still 11.38MB menu. Its an excellent tool to use before using programs like DVD Shrink to compress the rest of the DVD.
