    Why an avi

    This gets off to a confuseing start,
    Quote : I converted it to avi in order to burn it.You can burn any data.jpg or avi etc.
    What did you convert and what with ?
    ? Do you mean for a home DVD player ?
    Just put the pictures on the DVD disk.If the DVD player reads
    this format usually .jpg then it's a slide show,
    or are you trying to make a movie with comments between pictures ?
    An avi is a movie,and an unnecessary conversion.:rolleyes:
    What is the total size of your pictures ?
    If you don't mean a home DVD then you can use XP's Slideshow
    Give more details as asked above.Home or PC player has to be answered.

    Sounds to me like he is making a DVD slideshow for people to play in a set top DVD player - the reason it's a movie is for transitions and audio to be added in. Perhaps the recipients don't have a PC or he just wants to make something a bit more elegant for his family.

    I agree

    Thats the way i see it.But first you create and test it on your PC,
    Then you burn it to disc for compatible set top DVD players.
