Need suggestions for video software.

by zero1221 / April 14, 2009 9:41 AM PDT

I need help finding a good program to use on my computer.
My camcorder uses minidv if info about mny camcorder is needed.
I think windows movie maker would meet most of my needs, but
I'm hoping for something with a menu making option for DVDs.
Free is always good, but doubtful if there is anything out
there that's really good for free. So I'm open to suggestions
for something good, but these are just home movies so nothing professional needed.

Windows DVD Maker
by RonS [WINDOWS-TEAM] / April 17, 2009 2:43 AM PDT

If you?re looking for menu making options, you should have a program called Windows DVD Maker on your computer (assuming you?re on Vista). That program actually has some pretty good tools for creating and tweaking a menu.

I used Windows Movie Maker to create a video a while back and when you publish to DVD, it actually opens up the DVD Maker and gives you menu options.

Hope this helps.

Thank you even if my thanks is a little late I sort of gave up working
on my home movies because my camcorder has decided to short out its connections. Which seems to be a problem that some people have with my camcorder, but I checked out windows dvd maker and it looks to be all I need when ever I can get my camcorder working again.
