Scenarist - Trouble with fade In-Out-Effects

I hope you understand my English, I`m German..

Im using Scenarist 5.2 on Windows 7, 64bit.
I understand the workflow of producing menue fade-In and Outs.
My problem is the trouble about the color palettes.
When I drag the whole PNG in the composition_object #1 , the color of the whole picture is “confused and ugly”. So I have to manually change it (the Pxml-Palette , that I would export out Scenarist Designer isn`t the solution of my problem, but when I go into the Palette and load the PNG itself as a palette , the colors of the picture are O.K.)
The same problems I have with the Effects “fading pictures” Scenarist is producing.
The pictures / the color palettes aren`t really clean. Their fading is O.K., but the colors are really ugly.
It`s really weird.
Do you know about these problems?

In the composition object you have also to specify the palette you want to use. Basically you create a new palette, load the pxml to assign the right colors to the palette and then drag the PNG into the composition_object choosing the previous palette as the default for your effect. This as a 'general' rule. For fades I think it's better to use the wizard inside Scenarist (that take the palette into account). Another way, for other more complex effects, is to do it inside After Effects (exporting a PNG sequence and using Scenarist Designer to lately import into Scenarist) and made the effect as a button page. This has the advantage to separate the effect from the page so you can come back to your page without showing the effect.

I`m also trying it with AE.
It depends of the project which way I wanna gonna, but I`m so ambitious to get the whole (well not at all) overview of the programm.

It works now, it was the order of importing palettes and the PNG-File...
The colors are O.K. now.
There is still a problem with the color palettes in the finished menue.
The first (Null-) Palette and the last palette is correct in the IG Effect Editor
But I can see in the little preview pictures , that the Palettes between those ones are in an reversed order.
So when I mux it and watch the BD, the menue is invisible, then it`s fading out (!) and the Menue in visible at the end.
Hey, I want an correct In-Effect!
So I must manually change the palette in the correct order, thanr the result is O.K.
So much handwork...

Thanx for your answer!!!
