    If you can extract the trailer to an MPEG file (say a 60 clip that you want as the background to the menu and which will loop) then try Tsunami DVD Author PRO

    After the main movie is imported, at the Menu creation stage you can import a clip and test it at the simulation step.
    At that step there is a 'Preview Menu Motion' button that when activated shows you how the menu will look in real time.
    I think the program has a 14 day trial and is quite simple to execute.
    I used the technique with Voyager episodes where the opening fly-by and credits became the menu background and each episode (or track) had an animated button.The animation on the buttons is optional.
