Default Best dvd creator for slideshow and video material??

We just returned from Alaska with a ton of digital pics and a few video clips.

1. What is the best (amateur) program to make a DVD slideshow, possibly interspersed with video clips of our recent trip

2. And, is there a program that will allow me to capture video from an existing DVD to add to the one I intend to create

I am looking at Nero Vision, but wanted some other options before I buy.

Tia,

I cant comment on the video part of your question but.....new dvd players (last couple years) recognize jpegs. Burn to cd and then play as a slide show.

If you have an older one go and buy one of the uber cheap basic ones being sold just for playing pics. Ive seen them as cheap as ~$30 at Sams clubs etc. Plug and play for the slide show then put away.

If you want video and still photos I would suggest Adobe Premier or windows movie maker. Both have similar interfaces and just about anyone can figure out how to use them. Plus lots of tutorials online on how to use them.

Yes simply 'rip' the video to your hard drive and use adobe premier or movie maker to copy out parts you want. Then add them to your 'movie file'. Its actually pretty ease Carla

I use Photo Dex Pro show

The first slide show I ever did:

http://www.photodex.com/sharing/view...=2525900&alb=0

Was easily done with pro show GOLD

I now use Pro Show Producer and did this
http://www.photodex.com/sharing/view...=2846935&alb=0

You will need a very fast INTERNET connect to see the second show but anyone could view the first one.

Tell me what you think.
