Slideshows on DVD

By BorgInva ·
I am looking to make playable in DVD players, slideshows of a bunch of pictures (JPG) and movies (Quicktime's MOV). I am not looking for that much fancy stuff. Maybe some transition effects but I really want it to play both in order with a menu option to jumpo around like you would with a movie. What program, FREE preferred, that I can easily do this? I have Nero but it does not do MOV.
Thank you.
Merry Christmas.

There is nothing out there for free that will do what you require. You will need a software program that does DVD Authoring. If it is in your budget, I would suggest Pinnacle Studio 10. It will handle all video formats and you can include your setup your picture montage with transitions that are built into the software, add text and even music. Price ranges from $70 - $100, depending on where you shop. It is very easy to learn.

Sorry. I tried their trial version because the tech support said it will handle MOVs. It does not. I loaded MOV files and it does not do anything with them.
I just got off the phone with them again and she said the first person made an "error" when I asked about MOV files.
