make a DVD from photo's / movies


Last week I was on vacation. Now, I have some photo's and a couple of short movies, taken with my digital photo camera. I want to make a DVD for my friends, and therefore I want to do the following things:
  1. Convert pictures to a (MPEG2) slideshow. I use DVD slideshow GUI for this, a great program.
  2. Convert all movies to MPEG2. I like to use a batch converter for converting all my movies (which are ordered in a directory tree per subject) with a standard AviSynth script (not yet created by me) to convert all AVI's to MPEG2 with a freeware encoder like HCenc.
  3. Create a (fancy) menu with pointers to the slideshow and all movies. I do not know which program to use for this.
  4. Burn DVD using ImgBurn or something like that.
As you can see, I need some help with points 2 and 3. Does someone know a programs that does what I want?
Thanks for your help!

You can load your avi's into DVD slideshow GUI and make them a part of the slideshow.

If you want a dvd with menus and such: export from D.S.G. to .gfd format.

Download Gui for dvdauthor and load the .gfd file.

Now you'll have a dvd with a main menu, the entire slideshow as one video, a chapter menu and also a slide/movie pr. menu so you can forward to next slide/movie(motion-menu) by your remote.

If you want a different structure you can change most things in Gui for dvdauthor.

Imgburn can be used for burning directly from G.F.D.

There's a flash tutorial here: GFDexport.html
DVD slideshow GUI(Freeware).

recommend DVD Photo Slideshow

vacation always sounds good for me, and the application you referred seems good, too. thank you man

i just want to recommend another software which i've used for almost one year, DVD Photo Slideshow, click here

it devides your DVD creating into 3 steps: organize photos -> choose menu -> burn disc
(actually, only two steps if you have only one album and use no dvd menu). simple, huh?
