    WINAVI is the best prog to use, you just load your avi file in winavi, press convert then about 30mins later its ready to burn on to a blank DVD.

    Nero6 will also handle it, if you have a divx player(so cheap now) you can burn the avi and play it.

    If you're planning to burn your avi to dvd just copy as a data disc.It will play on a dvd player if it plays avi files.that is it will play.Divx and Xvid files.I have found when I play my avi files this way the player sometimes freezes or I have had lipsink issues.So I copy all my homemade films using Pinnacle studio 9 onto dvd as a normal dvd with chapters so you can break the film up into smaller segments.So I can goto my fav bits quicker.You will also be able to play your films around your family and friend houses as it will be unlikely the will have the correct dvd player for AVI files.

    Hi

    I don't know if your version of Studio 9 is a cut down version but you can capture, edit, and burn to DVD with chapters and menus all within Studio 9 using the three tabs in the studio 9 software, Capture, Edit and Movie.

    The process is pretty straight forward and the resulting DVD's are pretty good with regards to the PQ.

    One problem I found when using some third party software applications to generate a DVD from an AVI file is the sound and picture are sometimes slightly out of synch by a few frames.
