How do I export from WMM2 to a DVD creator program?

Ok, I've got a problem.
I've finished editing my film in Windows Movie Maker 2.
Now I want to save it, so I can import it into Ulead DVD Factory.
But the only options that WMM2 gives me is to either save it to:
My Computer
Recordable CD
E-mail
The web
DV Camera.

I want to save my project as a videofile, which I can import into Ulead DVD Factory, so I can add chapters and finally burn the DVD.

Please help me! :(

Save the output to 'My Computer'. This will save the footage in the origional 'AVI' file format. MF will then be able to import this and convert it to MPEG-2 to write to a DVD.

Thanks Mark.
Sorry, didn't realise that I could change the quality of the output, when I saved it to my computer. So I will change it to DV-AVI.

I've copied the film onto my DV Camera, just to check that everything is perfect, before I'll start burning the DVD.
But I noticed that everytime I have a text animation on my film, it seems to slow down the film a tiny bit.
Why?
Is there any way to work my way around that?

I would guess that the slow down is either due to MM2 or the PC specs. If this is the case then you will need to buy new editing software or upgrade the PC, but of the 2 it's more likely to be the software. Why not try one of the free 30 day demo downloads from someone like Pinnacle to see if that works without the slowdown. Or try copying the footage to a DVD-RW to see if the same thing happens.

Cheers mate!
Will try and copy it on to a DVD.
It took me quite a while to edit it, and I would prefer not to start all over again.
Will let you know if it turns out better, when it has been copied to the DVD.
