    Hi all

    I've been using movie maker the latest version as i have service pack 2.

    I've put together lots of photos over the past week and have music to play alongside them.I've dragged them all onto a story board ect..
    I was hoping to burn it all onto a DVD but the only option i see is to save to cd?

    Reading the help file that comes with it it seems to say only cd or cdrw?

    I'm just doing a test as i thousands of photos i want to put on a dvd so freinds and family can view them.

    Should i be using some other piece of software? or can i do what i want to do in windows movie maker but i've just not found out how to do it yet?.


    Thanks

    Microsoft Moviemaker can NOT burn a DVD - it is not possible - and the CD (VCD) which it creates will only play on a computer and not in a standalone DVD player.

    Moviemaker will create an .avi or .mpg file which you can use in another disc burning programme (such as NERO or whatever you have) to create a DVD.

    Yes and matrixsc is putting his PHOTOGRAPHS on a DVD - whats wrong with that - he isn't using a video camera or editing a video - so where do you want him to post.

    but he is using video editing software so ideally he would get better help in the Camcorders & video editing section

    but many many many of us visit both forums regularly - he wouldn't get any better or worse help in the video editing forum. and he isnt editing video - life isn't all just black and white - sometimes there are grey areas where we have to give and take a bit - without a forum " Using a Video Editor for Photographs" where would people like matrixsc post. - if he posted in "Camcorders and video editing" some other **** would say "this isn't the photography forum"
