    dvd creating software

    I am looking to buy some DVD authoring software. It is for me to use for school and needs to be able to take .wmv and convert it into a dvd to play on standard DVD players. Nice menus and options would be nice. I would consider paying up to £100 since we will get our moneys worth out of it.

    I am also looking at getting sony vagas, as a video editing suite for me to use at school unless anyone knows of something similar that is better.

    All import greatly appreciated.

    another vote for dvd flick seeing as its free DVD Flick

    If not then as per above the vso convert X to DVD is very good as have got that as well - I found the vso software to be more reliable when I have used it.

    Also there are open source free ways of doing it

    VideoHelp.com - Forum, Guides, Tools and hardware lists or Doom9.net - The Definitive DVD Backup Resource or doom.net

    Plenty of tutorials etc

    I believe that Ashampoo Burning Studio (also free to education) can do similar, although I've never actually tried.

    From the costed realm, there's always Premiere Elements.

    Do you have a link to the educational copy? Or know where I can get it?

    Ashampoo Burning Studio Free - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com

    It seems it is free to everyone, now...

    Thumbs up DVDflick

    DVDflcik is definitely the choice, IMO.

    Note that it's worth spending a little while setting up your own branded menu if you're going to be using it a lot. The menu .cfg files (in the templates folder) are fairly common-sense to edit and amend (just save backups often when you're making them, as there's no debugging it easily, and you can lose a fair bit of time since it just won't load the menus if something is amiss).
