Rather than use a PSD, use a universal photo format like a TIF or JPEG for the background.

Is your PSD a single-layer (background) file?

No it's not single layer. But it has always worked before with Windows 7. I need multiple layers and alpha support.

It still works in Windows 10 with DVDA 5.2. Did it just recently stop working or has it never work since you upgraded to Windows 10?

It stopped working after I installed a fresh install of Windows 10. Others functions of DVD-A 6.0 seem to work fine. Or maybe it's an incompatibility with a recent version of Photoshop?

I don't know about compatibility. I know Photoshop used to have a save mode to save so older versions could open it up. You could try that.

I checked the option to get better compatibilty with PSD. Does the version 7.0 worth a try? Do i have to pay to upgrade from the 6.0?

I stopped at 5.2 so I can't offer any advice on 6 or 7.

I've just tested on DVD-A 7. Same crash. I've also checked Photoshop export settings: maximize compatibility is set. Old PSD files created in previous versions make crashing too.


No one else has this bug on Windows 10? It *never* occured on Windows7.

I use DVDA 5.2 in Windows 10 and PSD files with no problem. Can you maybe upload your PSD file somewhere and I can download and see if I can make it work?

Thank you for testing. Here is a file which fits as a background menu:

DVDA 5.2 on Windows 10 opened it as a background menu fine. I don't know why you have an alpha channel on it though. It is just text.

Lucius Snow wrote on 3/5/2020, 4:12 AM

It's just same test. If you close the .dar and re-open it, still no crash?

Dot wrote on 3/5/2020, 8:16 AM

aww, interesting. I saved it and reopened and it did crash. That is really curious. I have not had problems with PSD files but I never use them as background. I create the whole menu with them.

Lucius Snow wrote on 3/5/2020, 8:22 AM

Yes it is! Even with a single layer, it crashes.
