So now it's time to preview how our pop-up menu will look over our footage when it pops up. This is just weird. It just doesn't work for some reason. This is very backwards, but this is just what you have got to do. Don't shoot me. I am just the messenger. Go ahead and click on the pop-up menu in the Project panel and over in the menu Properties, under the Pop-up tab, we can actually associate the Pop-up menu with multiple timelines, so what we need to do in this dropdown now is choose the timeline that it's associated with.
So, I am going to choose Clip05-tahoe. There we go! Now we could see our Pop- up menu over our footage. Now this is a little confusing as well, though. Because if I go to the Monitor, the frame that I'm on is 13 seconds and 9 frames in, where he's kind of flying through the air here, all awesome and stuff. And when I go to the pop-up menu, it's at the first frame of the timeline. That's because we have to actually manually type in the background frame but we want to preview the pop-up menu over. So we can just play our video and see what it looks like with the pop-up menu.
I have to manually type in a given frame. So, I would have to go in here and manually type in 13:09 if I want to see that frame we are just looking at with the pop-up menu. So, it's a little quirky yet. It seems like there should be a way, in one of these versions of Encore, to able to just play your video while you're looking at your pop-up menu and preview it as if you were a user using the pop-up menu over your footage, but you can't quite do that yet. But at least for the time being, there is a way to preview your pop-up menu over the footage by using the pop- up tab in the Menu Properties.
