    So I've got some episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender and I want to make a DVD out of it so I can watch it with friends and stuff. Most of the other programs usually suck in terms of quality and they usually have watermarks or something of the like. Any suggestions? I just need something that can organize all my videos onto a DVD with title select and the like. No watermarks or things of the kind. Good quality would be nice but I can always do with average quality, provided it runs at a good framerate and sound is fine.

    Freeware is preferred, although, worst case scenario, I can pirate something.

    ConvertXtoDVD. It will convert to the appropriate filesize to fit on a DVD5 or DVD9, you can add subs, chapters, choose menu styles, etc., and it will burn the disc for you. I'm using it frequently now to burn all the old seasons of 24. Not freeware but it is "free". [​IMG]

    I'll use it if DVD Flick is a bust.

    I also use ConvertXtoDVD and it seems to be pretty good. Better than Nero at any rate which is what I used previously.

    The best program for burning movies I know is Nero. It automatically converts your videos to the right format. Unfortunately its payed, but its worth it. I have Nero 8 but there is probably a newer version available.

    Just so used to using Nero, that I often forget there is likely something else out there.

    The only problem with Nero, is it's so full of itself. It's a hassle to install, because you have to go and say no I don't need this portion or that portion or this portion of the full install.

    But it's good at what it does.

    I use DVD Decrypter and Image Burn for anything that is actually originally an image file or ISO though.

    I tried DVD Flick and it's excellent. Menus aren't perfect looking but the video quality is excellent it's easy to do. I'm burning the second half of the first season of Avatar with it now [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    The thing is DVD menus are actually programmed in, it's not designed to be easy to make them (as it was only really made for commercial use), so the only free program that will let you customize menus is DVD Styler, but good luck figuring it out.

    I love convertxtodvd. it can be "had" farily easy. it does dvd 5 or 9, great quality, selectable menu styles, burns for you, and is just all around awsome. oh and ive never had it error on me when burning.
