Adding to the production value of a DVD project are backgrounds for menus and titles, art for DVD labels, and the appropriate disc logos. Most videographers have been doing this for years with DVDR discs, but the move to high-definition and Blu-ray Disc production involves a whole new toolset. This article identifies the most common third-party elements of a Blu-ray production and describes where to obtain them. There are multiple companies that license and sell royalty-free stock footage and animated backgrounds; four of the largest suppliers are discussed. These are Digital Juice, 12 Inch Design, Animation Factory, and Artbeats. If you have an inkjet printer such as the venerable Epson Stylus Photo R280, you can decorate the surfaces of printable Blu-ray Discs just as you would DVDR discs. At this point, vendors are limited, with only Verbatim, TDK, and Imation offering products through the normal channels.
